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.

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.

EZBlocker is not muting Spotify (or other muting issues).
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.

EZBlocker is muting my local tracks.
If you have music that isn’t labelled correctly, EZBlocker may recognize it as an advertisement. When playing local tracks, uncheck the option “AutoAdd Ads to Blocklist.”

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. is there a mac version?

  2. Worked well until last Spotify a week ago. Now every song is muted.

    • For me this was caused by exiting Spotify while it was being muted by EZBlocker. Check the OS system sound settings – I found that it was still in mute state for the Spotify application.

  3. Hi,

    I have a problem : “unhandled exception has occured in your application!”; with this details. May be with installation on windows XP? Have you a tutorial for installation EZBlocker with XP?
    Thanks. Bests regards.

  4. Hello my friend.

    I thought I finally found the perfect Spotify ad blocker, and I was so happy until I figured out something that completely ruins my whole experience.

    “Sigur Ros” is the most important band in my life, and I have over 30 songs of them that I starred as favorite, as well as I always want to listen to their albums. EZBlocker hate this band so much. It adds them to the block list no matter what song is played for them. Even if I remove Sigur Ros from the block list; it get back to the list instantly, why is that? Why can’t we add exceptions to our block list? The only way to not get them blocked is by switching to manual, not auto ads blocking, but this destroys the whole purpose of your app for me and made it become redundant!

    Therefore I apologise, but until you fix this problem in future versions or allow us at least to add exceptions; I’ll be using Blockify for the time being. Nothing personal, I believe your software is better, but I have zero tolerance policy when anything is touching negatively my most favourite band on earth, the Icelandic dream pop legends “Sigur Ros”. Thank you.

    Best regards,

  5. The program seems to have been outdated a bit as spotify ad’s are passing through and I can’t block them.
