EZBlocker is a simple-to-use ad blocker/muter for Spotify. EZBlocker will attempt to block ads on Spotify from loading. If an ad does load, EZBlocker will mute Spotify until the ad is over.

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

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.

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 "Disable all ads" box 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.

Why does my anti-virus say EZBlocker is a virus?
The latest version of EZBlocker may be 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.

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.

Hey man, thanks so much for making the ad-blocker. I know that I could probably go and buy Spotify Premium easy, but having limited money right now is tough enough as is. Thanks for what you do!

Still says Spotify is paused when it is not. It does update occasionally to be correct but quickly switches back to saying it’s paused. While it’s on this it doesn’t block ads. Half way through the first or second add sometimes it kicks in, but can also remain muted for the very beginning of the actual song.

Is there any plan or chance to export this app to MacOS/Linux? Or are there similar applications in other platforms? Thank you!

Couldn’t hurt to download the source code and remake it for systems like MacOS and Linux :^)

It keeps closing itself unexpectedly since I moved to Windows 10. Which is a pity because I don’t want to stop using this program, it is really the best there is. :/

Hi there. Can you put again the button to manually mute the ad ?

I’ve downloaded the latest version and is not working very well … 🙁

Just my two cents hacks for Windows user.

Simply just rename a file: ad.spa to anythingyoulike.spa OR just delete it!

Folder: C:\Users\XYZ\AppData\Roaming\Spotify\Apps

Notes:
– The “XYZ” folder is relative to your current Windows profile folder.
– The “AppData” folder may be hidden by default, so show it first through Windows Explorer’s “Organize” -> “Folder and search options” -> Select “View” Tab -> Select “Show hidden files, folders, dan drives” -> “OK” button

It works. Tested on Spotify for Windows 1.0.29.92.g67727800. Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit. June 15, 2016.

Goodluck
