Try not to use a VPN
If somehow it still doesn’t work and you still can’t sign in to Spotify, make sure you are not using a VPN. Although this is unlikely to cause the error code 3, you might have to turn the VPN off when signing in to avoid any issue, like the Spotify web player not working.
Spotify shows the error code 3 when you try to sign in, which means as it says: wrong password or username/email. If resetting the password doesn’t help, try contacting Spotify support.
