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.

Spotify seems to have gotten wise to blocking their ad servers and have made their content and music come from the same source as the ads, so blocking banner ads now blocks all of spotify. I had delete all spotify lines from my hosts file to get the music back.

Once that’s done, the muting of audtio ads still seems to work. (though it does sometimes mute all of spotify randomly too.)

Since I installed EZBlocker my Spotify mutes by itself (on the sound mixer, not in the app). Any idea why this is happening? Thanks

banner ads not being blocked. Overall spotify behavior has been “weird” for about a month. Sometimes ads play but are muted and there is just silence for a coupla minutes. however long it takes. I’ve re-installed new versions of ezblocker and spotify. Sometimes EZB cannot “hook” spotify.
