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.

Whenever I choose a new song to play, EZBlocker mutes it. How can I fix this?

Scott

EZBlocker Version: 1.7.3.0
Spotify Version: 1.0.98.78

Banner ads are getting blocked and audio ads are getting muted, so that’s good. But it’s also muting the first track of any new album I select. Easy to workaround, just skip to the second track then back to the first, but annoying.

Any chance of total audio ad blocking coming back? Muting is obviously better than nothing but the interruptions are still non-ideal.

I can’t tell you how much greatful I’am for this amazing program but the real reason why I come here to comment is to announce that since I updated to the last version of it, when it opens Spotify it starts muted (Windows 10 x64).

this application only blocks some ads, not all

Seems to no longer allow playing or adding songs outside of my own playlists, reinstalling spotify and scrubbing registry aswell as redownloading the ezblocker didn’t fix it. Ads are still blocked though.

Hi Eric, great work btw.
Unfortunately the latest version 1.7.3 and Spotify 1.0.98.78 (and the previous one) seems to stop working at certain ads. EZblocker says it’s paused and Spotify sits there looking like the next song is ready to go but it’s not playing. You can hit play or pause and spotify seems to do nothing. EZBlocker thinks it’s paused no matter whether you hit the play or pause button.
Only restarting EZBlocker and Spotify seems to resolve the problem
Hope the above makes sense.
Thanks Eric.
Cheers, MTR

seems like the most recent update broke some features. like not being able to add certain songs to library for instance
