Huawei Phones Have Started Showing Ads On The Lock Screen And Users Are Not Happy

Advertisements have become a common sight on the internet. After all, they contribute a majority of the Internet's revenue. Every website, app, or service relies on them to make money. Though, many have observed companies getting too greedy about earning and bombarding the users with intrusive or disturbing ads.

We've all come across auto-playing video ads that not only suck bandwidth in the background but are also annoying since they pop-up instantaneously. When users get irritated about ads on their browser, it's fair to assume they'll be furious if ads start creeping out in the mobile UI as well.

A large number of Huawei users have reported seeing advertisements (especially about Booking.com) on their phone's lock screen. So far, users with the P30 Pro, P20, P20 Lite, and P20 Pro, and Honor 10 have confirmed visibility of ads. They're appearing for device owners who are using the preinstalled landscape background wallpapers.

Huawei's sister-brand Honor was quick to confirm on Twitter that the company isn't serving these ads. Huawei says the ads are being delivered by third-party services or apps. What's fishy is, the ads are visible on Huawei's factory installed Magazine cycle of wallpapers. We assume the company relies on a third-party to serve these wallpapers, and they've pushed forward a promotional wallpaper without Huawei's consent.

According to a Reddit thread, four images about Booking.com were added in the wallpaper rotation. You can delete the particular wallpaper, but there's a possibility the service can push more promotional content in the future, and you'll have to manually remove it each time.

Obviously, the best and safest way to avoid these ads is by not relying on Huawei's wallpaper app. There are a lot of options available on the Play Store. Last year, a similar issue had been found on Samsung phones as well.

Xiaomi's MIUI is infamous for pushing ads in the UI. It does so officially and the users are aware of what they're buying into. Even then, users have been complaining about rising ads within the phone's skin and some reports have also pointed towards "vulgar" ads being served.

For Huawei, the timing couldn't get any worse. The company has been blacklisted from doing business in/with American markets and this means future phones will not be able to use Google's Play Service. On a more micro level, even basic resources like ARM's chipset architecture is now out of reach.
