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 file.

Why is my Spotify is permanently muted?
There may be issues with EZBlocker muting Spotify on your computer. 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 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 by a few anti virus programs. This is most likely due to the way EZBlocker disables Spotify's 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.

Ads only muted, not skipped

If Spotify is closed and reopened (a way that will always skip ad breaks) during a muted ad break, the first song played starts out muted and sometimes remains muted for the entire song

Hi Zhang, are you happy with all the money you finally accept from Spotify as a payment for stopping the updates of your software? We know that.


daily mixes dont seem to work at all in newest update.


No longer blocking. Tried full uninstalls of EZBlocker & Spotify with new downloads several times without any luck. Keeps saying that I have installed App version of Spotify. I did use the link that comes up on EZBlocker. Help!


Latest version of Spotify removed the open from Web option in preferences, so EZBlocker doesn’t seem to be able to detect that Spotify is open and automatically closes. Was working most of the time before the update though!


when silencing the ads sometimes it also pauses it, so it takes forever to resume the music
