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.

Hey Eric – I’ve been using your tool for I think about three years now and have been happy with it ever since, keep up the great work and thank you for making this available.

As a note of feedback: there used to be a “Add to blocklist” button which I’m occasionally missing, I guess now and then one slips through your fully automated adblocking which was introduced in V1.5.

Hi Eric
I have issues with EZblocker and AVG antivirus. When i disable the antivirus EZblocker works fine, but when AVG is on it keeps displaying “loading…” and does not mute the ads. I’ve tried adding exemptions for EZblocker and Spotify but it did not help. So any advice/fix would be much appreciated. Thanks for your work regardless.

Hello , Eric, I updated to last version after getting auto exit , but now its does not mute all ads , also this used to skips all ads , if you are unable to skips the ads can you do something about video / pop up ads? even if they are muted they do eat my internet data ;/

hi! would you consider making something similar for Linux? every solution I’ve found so far only mutes the ads instead of skipping them.

This does the same… This mutes and not skips. My suggestion is to play a local file while you wait for the adds to finish.
