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. Hello! Works great, but is detected as W32.DFC.MalParent by Immunet Protect.

    Not good….

  2. Stopped working for some reason. Every time I start EZblocker it says “Spotify is Paused”. Even though music is playing..

  3. Mi versión del programa es 1.0.5.186.ga9c24d6a y anda perfecto!

    Gracias!!!

  4. WoW – I have been looking for the answer for so long!

    After Groove Shark went down, I have spent hours and hours looking for a solution!

    THIS IS MY SOLUTION

    THANK YOU

  5. Weird, don’t know why people are having problems. I can confirm I’m running the latest version of Spotify 1.0.5.186 and it still works beautifully, I’ve been running it all morning to see if it still works with the latest update. I still don’t ever need to reopen EZBlocker either, the first time I installed it and opened it was enough. After that I just closed it, Spotify still works the same since. Even when I restart my computer, I never need to reopen EZBlocker to disable the ads.

    I love how it works that way. I have not experienced any ads since using EZblocker, even video ads.

    I’m running on Windows 8.1, not sure if that makes any difference. Maybe people on Windows 10 are having issues?

  6. Please leave another mirror. Cant download lastest version.
    Thanks!

    • The mirror is working for me, unless it was just updated again since it wasn’t working yesterday.
