- Is Creating a Spotify Pie Chart Safe?
- You can create a Spotify pie chart of your listening habits using Spotify Pie, a third-party tool developed by Darren Huang.
- The website uses Spotify’s API to access your account stats, but there is a risk of leaks when it comes to sharing your account data.
- You can revoke third-party app access through Spotify’s website to help protect your account.
While Spotify boasts its popular Wrapped summary every year, there are other ways to visualize your listening habits on the streaming service. This includes making a Spotify pie chart with your listening data using a third-party tool.
How to Create Your Spotify Pie Chart
Darren Huang, a US-based Computer Science student, developed a website called Spotify Pie. It uses your Spotify data and visualizes your listening stats with a pie chart.
To create your own pie chart on the site, follow these steps:
- Head to the Spotify Pie website.
- Select Login to Spotify.
- Enter your Spotify credentials and click Log In.
- On the next screen, grant the website permission to access your Spotify listening activity by clicking Agree.
- Once your Spotify pie chart is generated, choose See Your Spotify Pie.
You should now be able to see a colorful pie chart with each slice representing the different genres of music you listen to, including alt z, pop, post-grunge, and more. Along with that, your top artists are listed below the pie chart in the order of most-listened to.
If you’d like to spin the pie chart, simply tap or click it. Once you’ve viewed your Spotify pie chart, you can also share it to your social media accounts by tapping the Download Spotify Pie button located below the pie chart.
You can now share it on your Instagram story, create a TikTok video using it, or share it on any social media app of your choice.
Is Creating a Spotify Pie Chart Safe?
While you may see many people on Instagram quickly hop on the bandwagon of sharing their Spotify pie chart, you shouldn’t be so quick to create yours just because a website has gone viral.
However, there is always a risk of data leaks when using third-party tools.
Fortunately, you can revoke third-party app access to Spotify by heading to Spotify’s website and logging in with your credentials.
Click your profile picture in the top right corner of the screen and select Account from the drop-down menu. Now, keep scrolling until you find Manage apps under the Security and privacy header.
You should now be able to see a list of all the apps that can access your Spotify account. To revoke Music Pie Chart’s access to your Spotify account, simply click Remove Access next to Music Pie Chart. While the website is called Spotify Pie, the service that gets access to your account is called Music Pie Chart.
At the end of the day, while using Darren Huang’s website to view your Spotify statistics is undeniably fun, you could be putting your data at risk.
Additionally, by logging in, you agree to receive occasional emails about new service features rolled out by the website. So, if you’re not a fan of spam emails showing up in your inbox sporadically, it might be a good idea to skip this tool.
While there haven’t been any confirmed reports of people losing their accounts due to this service, it’s often better to be safe than sorry, since there’s always the risk of your login credentials being potentially compromised.
