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.

Always mutes Spotify when starting.

I’ve been having this problem for ages which is that many times I play a song and the volume is already muted and I have to unmute it manually. Also, sometimes I open the blocker when spotify is playing music and it mutes the current song. Other times I just change the track and it blocks it too.

It’s not muting any ads. Even though I’ve managed to tick the admin box, it’s not blocking banners, either. The app isn’t really doing anything useful at all, when you get down to it.

automatically mutes everything on startup; I have to manually go into the volume controls and unmute every time. Also once I unmute sometimes ads don’t get muted.

Doesn’t seem to be working anymore, get “can’t play current song” A couple will work but 99% of the songs get the issue, either right away or after a couple seconds. Been using this program for a couple years now and first time getting issues. Would love to hear something about this, maybe a fix in the works? Looks like Spotify caught on
