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.

add ignore list, it would help a lot with adding artists to blocklist problem (when autoadd is on). other than that, works like a charm.

“üçnoktabir”, a band from turkey. and yes, i was playing locally. (thanks to its regional nature, one can’t always find the music he likes on spotify..)
but, i still think adding a simple ignore list would be more useful than giving feedback everytime this occurs.
ignore list with maybe periodical uploads to database? that way it would help other users too. (but i guess this would require cross-referencing to prevent unlocking of ads ofc..)
anyway, keep up the good work :]

EZBlocker isn’t remembering my settings when I reopen it. For example when I disable taskbar notifications, close the program, and reopen it the setting will be enabled again.

Other than that great work!

I had that problem, but found that it was because I had put the program in a folder that required Admin rights to write to (aka. Program Files (x86)).
By putting EZBlocker in a folder that it had full rights to, it started to save settings. I put mine in a folder in My Documents., and just created a shortcut for there in my Start Menu

The new version(1.2.2) does indeed crash at start up….

Anybody interested in minimizing EZBlocker to the systray may use “4t Tray Minimizer Free” to do so till that option will be available.

Keep it up, Eric! Love the program!
