EZBlocker is a simple-to-use ad blocker for Spotify that automatically mutes commercials.

There are no fancy features, just pure ad blocking. When an ad is blocked, only Spotify is muted, so no other sounds will be affected. EZBlocker aims to be the most stable and reliable ad blocker for Spotify.

There’s no setup required – just drag it into any folder and run. To upgrade your EZBlocker, simply replace the executable.

EZBlocker v1.5

Download

For Spotify 1.0.X: Download v1.5.1.4 (March 14, 2015)
For Spotify 0.9.X: Download v1.4.0.1 (November 22, 2014)
EZBlocker Changelog

The latest version of EZBlocker is picked up as “Trojan.Generic” by a few AV vendors. This is most likely due to the way EZBlocker disables Spotify’s banner ads. If you do not feel comfortable downloading the executables directly, feel free to view the source code and compile it yourself.

EZBlocker requires .NET Framework 3.5 and Windows 7/8.

FAQ

What does “Mute Only Spotify” do?
If this is enabled, EZBlocker will only mute Spotify instead of your whole computer. This means other sounds from other programs will continue playing. People running Windows XP should keep this unchecked.

Why is my Spotify is permanently muted?
There may be issues with EZBlocker muting Spotify on your computer. If this is the case, uncheck the “Mute Only Spotify” option on EZBlocker. You can manually modify your Spotify’s volume by opening the Volume Mixer.

How do I block banner ads?
Check the “Block Banner Ads” box (in EZBlocker v1.5+ only) to enable banner blocking. Enabling and disabling this feature requires you to run EZBlocker with administrator privileges.

Does EZBlocker block video commercials?
EZBlocker will mute videos but not prevent them from playing. If you don’t want video ads, make sure you keep your Spotify minimized.

Can you make EZBlocker for Android/iOS?
EZBlocker for Android is available here. There are no current plans for an iOS version.

How do I donate?
I don’t accept donations for EZBlocker. I would rather you spend your money on Spotify Premium. If Spotify Premium isn’t offered in your region, I suggest donating to a non-profit such as the Tor Project.

Is EZBlocker open source?
Yes it is, and I encourage all to contribute. The source & technical description is available on Github.

  1. Thanks!!!!!

  2. connection error on 8-20-15, ezblocker can t connect

  3. Thank you. No adds interrupting playback so far in my PC. However, I downloaded the android app. making it sure everything was set properly and still can hear the annoying adds, not sure why.

  4. powerfull,
    tiny flaw – there is no auto run possible? you have to run the exe file each time you restart your computer, right?

    • Just add it to your windows startup folder. That’ll start it when u start your PC.

    • Hi, create a text file with the following commands (complete it with the right path):
      START /MIN C:\…\EZBlocker.exe
      START C:\Users\…\AppData\Roaming\Spotify\Spotify.exe
      Save it somewhere as a batch File, like “Spotify.bat”, create a shortcut of it. Place the shortcut where you really want it. Name the shortcut only “Spotify” and choose the Spotify icon in the file Settings (select the Spotify.exe for that). If you want Spotify at Windows startup, deactivate it in the Spotify settings and place the shortcut in the autostart folder.
      And here you go: Looks like the original Spotify shortcut and starts both programms with EZBlocker minimized. :)

    • No, u can run only once and close and ads still will be off

    I updated to Win 10 and eveything’s fine but this: the lower ribbon in which ads used to appear is here, empty, but here. Anything I can do to fix that?

  6. Could you please bring back the add to block list feature for the 1.5 version? I liked having control of blocking ads or removing songs from the list just in case the software had a problem.

    -J

  7. Is there any option to start this at windows startup and minimized?
