Jamming Project - Spotify API asking for login from different browsers


I had sent my surge site to a few friends and when they try to search and the spotify api is called, it asks for them to login. Why is that happening? Should I use a different auth method?

Welcome to the forums!

Because of Spotify’s security settings, only you and users you directly give permission to can access the application (or at least it’s features through the Spotify API). Unfortunately this restriction cannot be disabled for projects considered “Hobby Projects” such as Jamming, and you would have to add each Spotify account you wanted to grant access directly via the developer dashboard:

I would assume it’s asking your friends to login to verify that they are actually on the authorized users list before it grants them the required Spotify API features.
