FAQ

Why aren’t ads being muted?
Did you enable EZBlocker in your Accessibility settings? Also make sure you don’t have Spotify in the foreground. EZBlocker only activates when the Spotify icon is visible in the notification bar. Read the installation and usage instructions above. In rare cases, some ads may slip through EZBlocker’s filter. Leave a comment below if this happens.

Will EZBlocker slow my phone down or drain the battery?
Probably not. EZBlocker takes minimal RAM and CPU usage and only runs when Spotify is active. It’s footprint is roughly ~20% that of Spotify’s. Newer devices will not notice a difference.

Is EZBlocker for Android open source?
It will be eventually. Right now, EZBlocker for Android is still in its testing phases, so the code is pretty messy and undocumented.

Hi there, the app works in general, but is force-closing about 50% of the time when I open Spotify from its notification to star/”plus” a song. Is this a known issue?

I’m on a Galaxy Nexus with rooted stock Jellybean.

I’m encountering a bug where the volume doesn’t unmute and can’t be unmuted without rebooting the phone. EZBlocker mutes the ads correctly, but sometimes (not always, but more often than not) the volume doesn’t unmute when the ads are over. Pressing the mute/unmute button in EZBlocker does nothing. It’s impossible to unmute even from Android’s volume settings, even if I stop the EZBlocker process. The only thing that will restore audio is rebooting the phone. This is happening on Android 4.4.2.

Blocks everything, not only ads.
