As a safety precaution, Spotify is signing some people out of the app and will ask them to sign in again when launching the app. It also urges users to upgrade their apps and notes that they will have to re-download offline playlists.

Spotify has apologized for any inconvenience that comes as a result of the attack. Users of Apple’s (AAPL) iOS and Microsoft’s (MSFT) Windows Phone weren’t affected by the hack.
