Spotify using location data to curb family plan abuse

In an attempt to curb abuse of its family plan, Spotify is now requiring that users occasionally provide access to their location data. Spotify’s Premium Family plan at $15 per month allows up to six users to access the service. Revised terms and conditions for the family plan now says that users will be required to provide location ’from time to time’.

This is completely stupid. Are they that incompetent to think all families live in the same house? I'm glad I don't pay for their crap, and never will.
