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.

FAQ

What does "Mute Only Spotify" do?
If this is enabled, EZBlocker will only mute Spotify instead of your whole computer. This means other sounds from other programs will continue playing.

Why is my Spotify is permanently muted?
There may be issues with EZBlocker muting Spotify on your computer. If this is the case, uncheck the "Mute Only Spotify" option on EZBlocker. You can manually modify your Spotify's volume by opening the Volume Mixer.

How do I block banner ads?
Check the "Disable all 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 as "Trojan.Generic" by a few AV vendors. This is most likely due to the way EZBlocker disables Spotify's banner 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.

Hi, my EZBLOCKER isn’t starting on login, I can’t see the icon but when I checked it was habilitated to do so. Can someone help me with that?

since some days it keeps saying “Loading…” in the lower left corner and neither the muting nor the blocking works. Strange thing though i didn’t change anything about spotify or ezblocker, even tried an older version, same problem. Sometimes it says “spotify is paused” but still doesn’t work. Had no problems before this started. Windows 10 x64 / .NET Framework 4.5 installed / tried reinstalling spotify & ezblocker

I suggest everyone to downgrade Spotify to, say, v.1.0.25 or lower and google for a way to DISABLE program updates (it exists). Latest versions from 1.0.28 and newer come with an indecent volume in ads and unfortunately EZblocker (for which I hereby thank the author for developing) mutes them only a second later circa. I’ve jumped from my chair so many times these last days I had to find a way to end this once and for all, hence my suggestion to users.

I haven’t had ads for over a year and I’m not premium. I’ve just never had ads and Spotify does update. Any clue what’s up in my situation?

Add support for multiple users and fix the new version (it closes automatically and it can’t hook the Spotify .dll).

i had to revert back to the old version because every time i launch it, it automatically closes and i have to launch it again.

The new update doesn’t work if Spotify paused and played again after a while
