Some users choose to use Spotify with a VPN to experience different music songs or artists that may be unavailable in their current location. But if your Spotify is not working with a VPN, this post will help you.
Fix Spotify not working with VPN
If your Spotify is not working with a VPN on your Windows PC or Phone, use the following suggestions:
- Disconnect and reconnect VPN
- Use another web browser
- Disable your ad blocker and other browser extensions

1] Disconnect and reconnect VPN
Sometimes, disconnecting and reconnecting a VPN connection can clear temporary issues. We suggest you disconnect and reconnect the VPN and check if it brings any changes.
If you’re using Spotify on your phone, then try to disconnect and reconnect your VPN. To do so, Open your VPN app. Look for a button or toggle labeled “Disconnect,” “Stop,” or “Turn Off.” Tap that button to disconnect the VPN.

2] Use another web browser
If you are using Spotify in your web browser and experiencing trouble with VPN, we suggest you use another web browser. A lot of web browsers are available. You can try using Spotify on popular web browsers, such as Chrome, Firefox, Edge, and Brave.
3] Disable your ad blocker and other browser extensions
Some ad blockers and browser extensions may interfere with Spotify while using a VPN connection. VPNs often have security measures that might clash with extension-based security features, leading to connection or compatibility issues. If this is the case, disabling your ad blocker and other browser extensions can help to resolve this issue.
4] Switch VPN Service
Switching VPN services can help fix this issue. Sometimes, the problem is with a particular VPN server offered by the VPN tool you’re using. If you are using a free VPN service, we suggest you switch to another VPN connection and see if it helps. Switching to another VPN connection is not possible if you are using a paid service. In such a case, content the support of your VPN service provider.
If you are using the Spotify app on your phone, you can install another VPN app from the App Store or Google Play Store.
That’s it. I hope this helps.
