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.

Copy EZBlocker.exe to the Spotify folder, run Spotify and then EZBlocker (don’t close popup window with ads blocker – minimalize to the tray).

This message is for the Developer: After Spotify did its recent Windows Update (seems to be only this version “1.1.88.612″), I along with others (see comments below) are having issues with the ads being blocked. The settings were not changed, Block Banner Ads” is still checked. When i open the Volume Control Panel during an ad, i have to manually mute it, then when music resumes, it uses the non-muted one, but as soon as ads play again (15min later +/-), the one muted for the ads last time, was bypassed and Spotify opened another to play from (This goes… Read more »

same here… the blocker settings were never changed, but after this last update, i have to constantly open the volume control window and block the one playing the ads, but the next time ads come up, its bypassing the one i had to block manually and running off the other. This goes back and forth all day long.
