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.

Whenever I pause a song EZBlocker mutes spotify, so when I close and launch spotify again without EZBlocker open, my songs will start muted. And even after reopening EZBlocker I’ll need to go to the volume mixer to unmute spotify in order to hear my music. Please fix

Thanks for the great work on this app. My problem is that EZBlocker consistently fails to mute Spotify when it plays a 15 second video ad for Axe body wash (includes the song Born Free by Matt Monro). When I go to the volume mixer to mute Spotify manually, I see that there are multiple sound sources coming from the program, and the one playing the ad sounds is unmuted. Please let me know if I can provide any other useful info.

Hello, i’m writing here to report to you that today I’ve started to listen music but EzBlocker hasn’t blocked the Ads but only the background music of them.
The problem appear every time I close Spotify and minimize it in the taskbar.
I hope you can fix soon this problem.
Thankyou for your wonderful app!

sometimes doesn’t mute the ads due it not creating the second audio channel in sound control panel

Any updates? It seems to not work in mine, only mutes one time & then starts playing the rest of the ads.
