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

EZBlocker automatically detects ads and adds them to a blocklist. You can also manually select adverts to remove by adding them to the “blocklist”.

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.

FAQ

How do I use EZBlocker?
When you decide you want to listen to songs on Spotify, open EZBlocker. When an advertisement plays, EZBlocker will mute your Spotify. If you run into an advertisement that’s not muted, open EZBlocker and press the “Add Current to Blocklist” button.

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” by right clicking on the volume icon in your task tray.

I accidentally added an artist to the blocklist.
If you mistakenly add something to the blocklist, open EZBlocker and press the “Open Blocklist” button. Simply remove the line that you added and EZBlocker will automatically recognize the change.

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

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

  1. In the last two weeks, everytime I open spotify I receive the message “SpotifyWebHelper has stopped working” and when that happens, EZblocker stops skipping the ads. Do you know what might be causing this? and if the SpotifyWebHelper is in some way stopping EZblocker from working properly?

    Thanks!

  2. EZBlocker is really working fine.
    I’ve had some trouble for some days because no Adverts were blocked anymore. EZBlocker could not read the actual playing title so it was not possible to add anything to the blockinglist. This problem coming up after Spotify was updating by itself.

    But after a re-installation with the Installer of Spotify everything is fine again.

    Great work Eric!!!

  3. When I play local files from my computer, EZ Blocker automatically mutes them even though they are not ads.

  4. It doesn’t work with the newest version of spotify anymore. It mutes the system now instead of the spotify application. Maybe you can make it controll the volume slider instead of the mute button.

  5. Few days ago my ezblocker stoped to open. Even if i’m opening it as admin. What to do?
