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 v1.8.1 (Nov 6, 2021)
Changelog and Previous Versions

EZBlocker requires Windows 10/11 or Windows 7/8 with .NET Framework.


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.

If a song that you imported from your computer (local files) is played after an ad (or even without an ad) spotify will keep being muted instead of unmuting.

EZBlocker is blocking NPR and BBC news in my Daily Drive playlist. I need to unmute Spotify in order to hear.

Maybe minimize to taskbar instead of notification area? Also it doesn’t seem to work when minimized. (windows 10)

I’m using windows app. I have option “Start EZBlocker on Login” selected. Everything works fine except the moment when I want to shut down my computer. If I don’t quit EZBlocker manually it prevents windows from shutting down. I get “Closing 1 app and shutting down” screen. Can this be fixed?
