Question

[bug?] randomly following channels I never subscribed to

In the last 6-12 months it occured 3 times that all of a sudden I was following a channel that I never subscribed to. Every time it was a very active, popular channel. Due to this I suspect this might be a shitty "feature" of soundcloud trying to promote use of the service? Please cut it off, or fix this bug. Thanks!

This is a problem that many people are experiencing, including myself.
Every time I visit soundcloud, I have to delete a dozen crappy EDM accounts.
I don't like EDM, it's not why I'm here, I don't want that rubbish in my stream.
It has been reported in this thread: soundcloudcommunity.com/subscriptions-renewals-230059/soundcloud-keeps-following-random-people-without-my-input-how-do-i-stop-that-6740663/
Supposedly "fixed", but it's clear this problem is persisting without anyone looking to actually fix it.

Hi there,

Please make sure to check http://soundcloud.com/settings/connections and revoke any connected apps that you don't know. This will make sure you have authorized no other app to add followers.

Cheers

I don't have any connections and have the exact same problem.
