Solutions to Spotify OTP Not Received Problem
1. Double check number
It is always a good practice to double-check numbers before confirming or submitting them, especially if they are important to get the OTP. This can help prevent errors and ensure that the correct information is used.
Also, check if you are receiving other SMS messages, if you are not able to receive sms from others then it may be an issue of your sim not receiving SMS.
2. Clear the Cache
The cache is the files that are used to make future processes faster, which can be deleted, and deleting them will not create any major problem, in a result, it can solve your various issues like OTP not coming issue. You clear the cache of the Default Messaging app and Spotify app to solve this issue.
To clear the cache of Spotify on a computer, you can follow these steps:
- Close Spotify by right-clicking on its icon in the system tray and selecting “Exit.”
- Press the Windows key + R on your keyboard to open the Run dialog box.
- Type %AppData% and press Enter.
- Locate the Spotify folder and open it.
- Delete the “Storage” folder.
- Restart Spotify.
On iPhone, the process will vary depending on the operating system you’re using. For example, on an iPhone, you can clear the cache by going to the “Settings” app, selecting “General,” then “iPhone Storage,” and then selecting Spotify to delete the app’s data.
On Android, you can clear the cache by going to “Settings,” selecting “Apps,” then selecting Spotify, and selecting “Clear cache.”
Please note that clearing the cache will cause you to lose some of the settings you have made in the Spotify app, but you will don’t have to log in again. But in case if you clear the data, then you will have to log in again to do your settings again.
3. Restart your Smartphone
When a device is restarted, it closes all running apps and processes, which can resolve conflicts that may be causing the OTP not receiving. Additionally, a restart can clear the device’s memory, which can help with performance issues that may be contributing to the bug. Additionally, a restart can clear the cache, which can help with certain software bugs.
However, restarting a smartphone may not solve all bugs, and in some cases, more extensive troubleshooting or even a firmware update may be needed.
