I don't want a Facebook account so I don't want Spotify. In my opinion this is a stupid choice to limit the use of this service to the Facebook users.

This software constitutes a problem with privacy, not to mention pays out almost nothing to artists. I would rather buy music upfront.

Spotify is forbidden on my Macs. Here's why: It's rare to find a more invasive application. Spotify has FORCED macOS to open the app absolutely every time you boot your Mac. The only solution is to DELETE the application. I've dug around in the Library folders to kill off all traces of daemons, automatically loading processes, login items, ad nauseam. And yet, somehow Spotify found another method of FORCING Spotify to boot with the OS. Therefore: VERBOTEN! If a developer is this ABUSIVE of their users, their software has no place on my devices. Gone. A big [expletives deleted] to Spotify for creating the worst app I've used so far in 2018. Congratulations. Disturbing.

In menu Spotify> preferences> show advanced settings and in option Open Spotify automatically when starting the computer, select NO. Do you do it and it does not work anyway?
It may also be that when updating the application, put the preferences back by default, instead of keeping the ones you select. To me it restores the option "Show the songs not available in the playlists" that I always activate, and the app insists on hiding in each update. Nor do I see now an option that bothers me a lot and always canceled, that at the end of my selected album, the playback with themes at random continued. I suppose they will pay a lot of money for forcing you to listen to unwanted songs. Your selection is good, but I do not like to be forced to be aware of whether it ends or not what you select.

Joseluismen,

"In menu Spotify> preferences> show advanced settings and in option Open Spotify automatically when starting the computer, select NO."

That will only work when you're signed in to Spotify. Derekcurrie is correct. Without deleting the app, good luck preventing it from opening during login in a user account that ran the app once, never signed in, and never wants to.

I am a premium user, and did not know that the automatic start depended on whether or not you are using an account. Is it because of being a premium or free user? Or maybe for not identifying?
In any case, bad for Spotify. When you do not allow the user to choose how to use your application clearly. For me, this works while it is not updated. In almost every update, you have to check all the preferences, which return to the original default status imposed by Spotify: auto-start, similar songs without end, news, show iTunes, ... While I'm still using the same version, remember the preferences.
I do not like it to be updated necessarily, and not to take into account the permissions. If you originally installed it as an administrator, but you use it with another user without such a privilege, you can not replace the original package and it does not work. It forces you to install as many applications as users, each with their private copy in their personal user folder.

P.S. I do not speak English. This is a mechanical translation, I apologize in advance if it is not correct.
