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.

My spotify doesn’t play at all: all playlists seem to be empty on my computer (but othet people that follow my lists can see the songs and listen to them). Even new songs I look up won’t play at all. They don’t even start playing. Could this be connected to ezblocker or an ezblocker setting?


Ads are just being muted, not blocked

Hi ,been using this for a couple years and love it. However, have ran into a problem recently. I think the blocker thinks some songs are ads and therefore doesn’t play them, and they don’t show up in my playlist at all. Any fix?

Everything works as intended, but almost everytime I start ezblocker and spotify, spotify is muted even though a song is playing, not an ad. This happens really often and it is annoying to have to unmute spotiy in volume mixer every time.


Sometimes EZBlocker crashed and spotify kept running normally. I always open Spotify using EZBlocker.

Not working properly. Mutes songs at the beginning or suddenly stops playing certain playlists/albums & ads still pop-up. Please pls fix!
