Apple Music Users Complain about Random Playlists Bug
Apple Music is a music streaming service from the tech giant Apple Inc., one of the most used music streaming services worldwide. It offers a wide selection of songs from which users can choose to curate their playlists. Users also get song recommendations based on what they listen to. Apple Music is available for various platforms alongside Apple devices, like Android, Windows, ChromeOS, etc.
In recent news, some Apple Music users on Reddit reported an issue where random playlists they had not created had been added to their music library. Some people even noticed their playlists updating, with songs either deleted or added. Most of these songs and playlists were in languages the affected users had never listened to.
This could be a bug, but it has nonetheless created frustration and panic among users regarding the safety of their accounts.
While there is no potential fix, we advise Apple Music users to change their password and enable two-factor authentication on their Apple ID if they have not already done so.
To enable two-factor authentication on your iPhone or iPad, head into the Settings app, tap on your name, and then tap Password & Security. There, you will find an option to Turn On Two-Factor Authentication. Tap on it and then tap Continue. After that, follow the instructions on your screen.
To enable two-factor authentication on your Mac, select the Apple menu (the Apple icon), head into the System Settings, click on your name or Apple ID, and then Password & Security. Then turn on Two-Factor Authentication and follow the on-screen instructions.
You can do either of the above two or click here to sign in with your Apple ID and upgrade your account security.
Also, do not forget to check which devices are currently logged into your account. You can do so by tapping your name or Apple ID, scrolling down in that section, visiting the Apple ID page, and signing in with your Apple ID. If you find an unrecognised device in the list, remove it immediately to ensure your account’s safety.
As of now, there is no official statement from Apple regarding this. Neither have the users mentioned above gotten any alert about potential hazards to their account’s safety. However, we hope Apple fixes this soon before this becomes a widespread issue and tarnishes Apple’s image further.
