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.

EZBlocker 1.7.1


Latest: Download v1.7.6 (April 22, 2020)
Changelog and Previous Versions

EZBlocker requires Windows 8/10 or Windows 7 with .NET Framework 4.5+.


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.

Hey the program keeps muting my local files for some reason, How can I stop this, I can’t find any input for them in the blacklist or anything.

Hmm okay, thanks for your quick reply. (even though I forgot I left a comment) I’ll just have to turn it off if I want to listen to my local files I guess. Not too much of a hassle. The program does wonders apart from this, so thank you!

Please make an option to reduce the volume of ads instead of muting. I don’t mind listening to the ads but they are too loud. Thanks!

Good job Eric! For those who want to disable the balloons:
1. Click on the little triangle next to the notification icons in the Windows task bar.
2. Click on “Customize…”
3. Find EZBlocker in the list and set it to “Hide icon and notification”

bug with some music from my personal library auto muting (although this can be solved by hitting the ezblocker unmute button), ‘cannot find track error’ is sometimes also written within the ads that usually display vertically on the right hand side of the screen. this is a first time installation (win 7). nice work though, hope it gets updated

I am using the new ezblocker 1.11, when running then a ad in spotify pops up it blocks the ad but it plays about 1-3 seconds of the ad…I do not like this.
Here’s a suggestion make ezblocker play my own MP3’s of my choice
