As cited in the title, this article describes how we can stop or disable Ads in MIUI ?
Xiaomi is one of India’s leading smartphone makers and sellers. They are very famous for their excellent technical specifications in their budget range smartphones. As they provide comparatively good smartphones with quality standards in a budget-friendly manner, they are trying to get revenue in some other way such as advertisements.
Certain premium manufacturers charge massive amounts for their phones which have the same Mi / Redmi series phone specifications.
Xiaomi achieves this aim by getting revenue through its MIUI (Mi User Interface). They use MIUI to show their users Ad notifications and popups.
As we’ve experienced, after Oneplus phones’ Oxygen OS, it’s one of the best android based user interfaces. Yet several Xiaomi smartphone users are annoyed by the confusing and distracting Mi advertisement.
We explain some quick and efficient measures to stop Ads in MIUI here. While the new version of MIUI is MIUI 12, most Mi / Redmi phones still run on MIUI 11.
Identify the MIUI version in your Mi phone
So that we could begin on MIUI 11. If you don’t know the MIUI version please go through the steps below.
Note that if the MIUI version of your phone is before 10 then try to update to the latest version available.
Remove Ads from MIUI 11 & 10
If you have MIUI 11 please follow the steps below to disable Ads from your Mi or Redmi phone.
Disable MSA app
In MIUI 10 Authoristion & revocation option is available in Additional settings.
ie,Settings > Additional settings > Authorisation and revocation
Disable personalized Ad recommendations
Then in the next step, you should disable the personalized ad service option in the privacy settings.
Settings > Passwords & security>Privacy > Ad services.
Here you should disable the Personalised Ad recommendations toggle switch.
How to disable ads in MIUI system apps
We did 80 percent of the work here. Now we need to disable MIUI Ads or Ads recommendations in individual system apps such as Settings, Mi Video, Mi Music, Mi Browser, Mi Security, Folders, Themes, Downloads, Mi File Manager, etc.
This can be fulfilled by going to settings or advanced settings of the individual app and toggle off the Recommendations.
