What To Do When You Run Into Spotify Error Code 17

Spotify Error Code 17 is an error code that indicates there is a problem with the user’s firewall settings, preventing the Spotify app from connecting to the internet. This error code is often accompanied by a message that reads “No internet connection detected. Spotify will automatically try to reconnect when it detects an internet connection.”

Firewalls are designed to protect a computer or network from unauthorized access, and they can sometimes mistake legitimate traffic, such as Spotify, for malicious traffic. When this happens, the firewall may block the traffic, causing the Spotify app to be unable to connect to the internet.

To resolve this issue, users can check their firewall settings to ensure that the Spotify app is allowed to communicate with the internet. This may involve adding an exception for the Spotify app in the firewall settings or temporarily disabling the firewall while using Spotify.

It’s important to note that while firewalls can help protect a computer or network from threats, they can also cause issues if they are misconfigured or overly restrictive. If users continue to experience issues with the firewall blocking Spotify, they may need to consult with a technical expert or the firewall’s documentation to determine the best course of action.

If none of these steps resolve the issue, users can contact Spotify support for further assistance in resolving the Error Code 17. Spotify’s support team may be able to provide additional troubleshooting steps or escalate the issue to their technical team for further investigation.
