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.

i solved the problem of ez-blocker not un-muting after the ad was over with deinstalling and reinstalling spotify. I had multiple problems with sotify and ez-blocker since november, but they seem to be solved. Hope it stays so.

thank you for your great work.

When clicking on “Start Spotify with EZBlocker”, I get the error:

************** Exception Text **************
System.IO.FileNotFoundException: C:\Users\ME\AppData\Roaming\Spotify\spotify.exe

The file is at:

C:\Users\ME\AppData\Local\Microsoft\WindowsApps\Spotify.exe

Guess it needs to hunt in both places..

Ads will start running after some minutes of using. I ticked on all of the options and ran it as admin, still presents this problem.

I had the black screen with three dots in the upper corner problem some 6 weeks ago. Had to reinstall spotify and not use EZBlocker to have Spotify work at all. Today I came to see whether there was an update since last I was here. There wasn’t, but I thought I’d give ver: 1.7.3 another go and wouldn’t you know it, it’s working! Can’t really explain it, maybe Spotify patched again in the mean time which resolved the problem. In any case, enjoying the app greatly.
