One of the main competitive advantages of Chinese Xiaomi smartphones is their low price with excellent performance. On the iron company almost does not earn. The net profit from gadget sales is no more than 5%. This was previously stated by the head of Xiaomi Lei Jun. Therefore, it is necessary to look for sources of income in another. If you are the lucky owner of a device from Xiaomi with the MIUI 10 or 11 branded shell, then you probably noticed that there are advertisements embedded in the firmware. They make huge money for the manufacturer, but they are very annoying to the users, but they can be turned off. We tell you how.
How do I turn off ads on Xiaomi smartphones?
We go through the menu of settings of the smartphone. There we find the tab "Access to personal data". In MIUI 10, it is detected in Advanced Settings, and in MIUI 11, it is hidden in Passwords and Security.
Now tick the box next to MSA (the same MIUI ads). All. The OS itself is rid of advertising.
But you also want to disable banners in system applications as well. To do this, you have to go into the settings of the programs themselves. So that advertising is not in the music, we go to the "Music", open the settings and simply disable the "Get recommendations".
The same should be done in "Explorer", "Security", "Downloads", "Cleanup". Everywhere, we remove the checkbox from "Get recommendations." Also, the ads are hidden in folders on the home screen of the smartphone. Just open the folder, click on the name and again get rid of "Get Recommendations".
If all this has not helped (but it is extremely rare), you should clear the application cache. To do this, go to Settings → Applications → All Applications → The program you need → Clear
