If you're a Spotify Premium member, chances are you have multiple devices connected to your account. You might connect to a speaker at a party, for example, or use your login information on a friend's computer, but later forget to remove the device. 

There are two ways to remove devices from your Spotify account: through the desktop program for Mac and PC, and in the mobile app for iPhone and Android

When using a desktop computer, it may be easier to forget all devices, and then sign in using your Spotify credentials to the few devices you frequent.
