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.

When I select a song it doesn’t play and it just keeps passing song by song super quick until it reachs the end of the playlist, I’ve tried relaunching, reinstalling (both sp and ez) rebooting my pc and shutting down and turning on my pc.

Ezblocker didn’t block an ad once. Have always had this problem of sometimes having to manually unmute the program as well, after an ad has been muted.

Hi, first of all I love this program and I’m thankful for how easy and efffective it is to use. On the other hand, I’ve had a minor issue lately where everytime I power on my computer I have Spotify muted from the Volume Control and I have to open it everytime to give it volume. I don’t exactly know what could cause this but if it’s useful, the program and Spotify open on startup. Thanks for your work 🙂

I’ve been having issues where EZBlocker will mute my music alongside any ads. Normally this can be resolved by right clicking the speaker icon in Windows 10 and unmuting Spotify manually, but this little hiccup can be annoying. Other than that, EZBlocker works great.

Great job. Thanks for creating this beautiful open source project!

Sometimes, when the song started, I have to pause and unpause a few times to it would start work.

I sincerely thank you for providing this opportunity to the computer programmers and engineers who are fed up with unnecessary ads and all the rest of it.

No longer seems to be working. Launching the EZBlocker is fine, but as soon as Spotify is opened the EZBlocker crashes.
