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.

FAQ

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.

Just tried this, and it’s not muting an ad in the block list.

adam

Same here. Not blocking ads anymore. Please look into it.

Kevin

It’s not blocking any ads for me either.

Hi! I found a bug in the AutoAdd Ads. The Ezblocker always keep puting the band College & Electric Youth in the blocklist. I know the name of the band looks like an ad. Just for you know. Thx for the awesome app

Jacob

Can you please add a option to minimize it to the tasktray?<3

Just updated to v1.2, and while listening to any album EZBlocker keeps adding the Artist to which I’m listening to the Blocklist!
After each song, the new song is muted until I realise EZBlocker is having me on..
Is this a new ‘feature’ of the update or are there ghosts playing tricks on me?!

Harrison

Also, I can’t ‘pause’ a track while EZBlocker v1.2 runs.. The track will pause momentarily and then continue to play.
If I close EZBlocker, then the track will pause normally.

Sometimes EZblocker does not unmute after a commercial. Would it be an idea to define a rule for this, if the end of the ad is not detected by EZblocker?

if automute > 45 sec than unmute (since the commercials are never longer than 45? seconds)

hey, can you make a hot-key for “add current to blocklist”
like esc, or f1? just anything easy i can punch when an ad comes up not on the list.

Cheers for a solid app. Spotify must just add ads too quickly to keep up with, cause ive gotten quite a few ive had to add to the blocklist

Hey, I love the program. I noticed it is connecting to iTunes, does the AutoAdd block anything that isn’t an artist there? Also it would be great if the next release would avoid crashing if the internet connection is lost.

Just upgraded to EZBlocker 1.2, and now when I press pause in the Spotify application on Windows 7, the song immediately starts playing again. Hope you can find a fix for this bug. Thanks!
