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.

EZBlocker v1.6.7


Latest: Download v1.6.7.0 (May 21, 2016)
Stable: Download v1.5.1.4 (March 13, 2015)
EZBlocker Changelog

EZBlocker requires .NET Framework 4.5 and Windows 7/8/10.


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.

Hi Eric, the current version of EzBlocker , does not block the ADS , it’s does Mute , but the fact that Ads is not blocked and can get in form of video or others make my spotify to freeze sometime…

My Spotify ads are not being muted.

I am using EZBlocker, Spotify, and Windows 10.0.14342. EZBlocker thinks that Spotify is paused, when really it’s playing an ad. It continues to believe that it is paused after the ad finishes playing. Quitting and relaunching EZBlocker causes it to re-sync with the correct state. I am going to try running it with Admin privileges to see if that makes a difference.

Hi Xero, add please an option to turn off update notification because we may not need to update manually to latest version if the previous one is still working. Well done with the whole app though, It’s funny you don’t accept donations, but be informed – your work is appreciated

Hey mate, love the tool. Ever since Spotify installed the new update, EZBlocker is randomly closing itself. I’m using v1.6.7.0 on Win10. Cheers!

Hello Eric. Thanks to you, I really really really enjoy listening to my music on Spotify. But the reason of this message is the following: I hated the new update of Spotify ( so I decided to go back to an older version ( When i began to use the older version, the ads reappeared again, so in conclusion EZ Blocker (at least the latest update) doesn’t work in older versions of Spotify. The question is: It is possible for you to create a special EZ Blocker version only for older versions of Spotify? I’m waiting answers. Greetings.
