Apple Music bug adding random playlists

However, some Apple Music users are reporting an issue where random playlists are being added to their library (1,2,3,4).

Apple Music adding random playlists to library

Numerous Apple Music users have reported an unusual occurrence where they have found random playlists containing songs, including tracks in languages they have never listened to, in their music library.

This peculiar behavior has raised suspicion among some users that their accounts might have been compromised by a hacker, as they have never encountered such an incident before.

Despite their concerns, no email or notification has been received by them from Apple Music, alerting them of any possible unauthorized access to their account.

All of a sudden there are playlists in my library called „UK🇬🇧“ or „GaBeLoZ“. Is this bc a random person got access to my account? And if so, is there a way to logout my AM account / Apple ID everywhere?

To make matters worse, some of the affected users have reported a complete upheaval of their playlists, with songs added or removed, and some playlists deleted entirely.

This has caused significant frustration and inconvenience to users who have invested time and effort in curating their music library over the years.

My Apple Music added like three random playlists and some of my playlists with years worth of songs disappeared. I have no idea why. I’m so confused has anyone else experienced this?

It seems that this is not the first instance where this problem has been brought to light, as a few weeks ago, some users (1,2,3) had already experienced this glitch.

In fact, one user was so concerned that they went as far as to email Apple Insider on behalf of the affected users to draw attention to the matter. However, there has been no response regarding this issue as of yet.

These bug has left Apple Music users questioning the security and reliability of the service. So we hope Apple fixes this issue as soon as possible.
