Music-streaming platform Spotify will block users’ accounts if a user is found using ad blockers.
According to the company's updated 'Terms and Conditions of Use,' if users are involved in blocking the ads that appear on Spotify with the use of ad blockers, Spotify will terminate or suspend the users’ Spotify accounts.
Here is what Spotify says under the 'User guidance' section:
We’ve established a few ground rules for you to follow when using the Service (Spotify), to make sure Spotify stays enjoyable for everyone. You must follow these rules and should encourage other users to do the same. The following is not permitted for any reason whatsoever:
Circumventing or blocking advertisements in the Spotify Service, or creating or distributing tools designed to block advertisements in the Spotify Service
Spotify account users who are using ad blockers and are flagged by the music-streaming platform are expected to be disabled by March 1, 2019. Of course, this applies only to the free, ad-supported service of Spotify, and not the premium Spotify accounts.
