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.

Every now and then (usually after Spotify has been open for a while) EZBlocker sometimes stops working (which is very annoying, as the incredibly high volume is ridiculous, at times causing me to throw off my headphone). Is there a fix for this other than just restarting EZBlocker?

anyone ?

Been using EZBlocker for over 6 months and love it. However, after the last update it stopped working. Says “Connection Error”.

Hi Eric,

This has been working wonders, until recently it permanently says “Spotify is paused” even though songs (and ads) are being played and the app is run as administrator… please fix it!

Spotify version: 1.0.23.90.g42187855
OS: Windows 10

hi, the app considers spotify to be paused when it’s actually running and thus doesn’t work.. is there something I can fix on the EZ blocker window or does the problem come from spotify updates ?

still a good app though, thanks.
