How to identify spot fake streams and playlists
1. The growth of a playlist If you see spikes and drops with a higher number of followers, this should indicate something is wrong with the list.

3. Not triggering the Discovered Weekly playlist or any other algorithmic Spotify playlist.
4. Stay away from free submission portals where these kinds of lists are posted; in return, you need to follow the playlist.
5. Avoid guaranteed playlist placement packages advertised on Instagram or through email marketing; in the worst-case scenario, your track will be removed.
Never use any service without knowing who is behind the website or platform. Do some research and also look into the legal notice.
