I signed up to Spotify while in Australia using my Facebook details now I am back in New Zealand where I live I can't use Spotify at all it's giving me an error when I try logging in saying I can't use it abroad for more than 14 days. I’m in my hometown and Spotify thinks I’m abroad. - - User from Spotify Community

I’m on the business trip to the UK and I can’t log in to my Spotify account. I’m from the US if that matters, can I listen to Spotify abroad?   - - User from Reddit

Users of Spotify may run up against the problem when they’re traveling or doing business abroad. A prompt will show up saying that you can only use Spotify abroad for 14 days. That means you can no longer use the Spotify app when you’re not in the country where you registered your account and thus you lose access to your Spotify music. This could be pretty annoying especially if you listen to Spotify on a daily basis.

In this passage, I’ll be showing you four tips to troubleshoot the disturbance and help you enjoy your Spotify abroad without limitation.

Tip 1: Change Your Country
Tip 2: Subscribe A Premium Plan
Tip 3: Use A VPN to Change Your Internet Location
Tip 4: Remove Spotify Abroad Restriction via ViWizard

Tip 1: Change Your Country

If you have reached the limitation of using Spotify 14 days abroad, that means you have used up the days of your legal use in that country and you have to change the country you’re in for unlimited use.

1. Log in to your Spotify account page

2. Click Edit profile

3. Click the Country bar below and select the country you’re in from the dropdown list.

Tip 2: Subscribe A Premium Plan

Spotify imposes the country restriction only when the account is free. So if you become a subscriber of any of its Premium plan, you’ll be able to listen to Spotify in any country where Spotify is available.

To subscribe Premium:

1. Log in to your Spotify account page

2. Click Premium on the top of the page

3. Choose a plan

4. Type in your payment details and get Premium activated

Tip 3: Use A VPN to Change Your Internet Location

Spotify recognizes your location by your IP address. When the address is not in your original country, Spotify will regard you’re in the other country. So a VPN will help you change the IP address to your home country and Spotify will not activate the restriction.

1. Install a VPN that contains a server of your home country.

2. Connect to the internet and choose the server of your country

3. Launch Spotify app and a few seconds later, you’ll be regarded in your own country.
