Xiaomi is one of the largest smartphone brands in the world. Its success is based on offering the user high quality terminals with great features at a lower price than the competition. However, there are several circumstances that the brand’s customers have to “swallow” with, such as enduring the presence of advertising on MIUI .
Fortunately, this is not a trance that all users of the brand must go through because, although it is not easy, the brand personalization layer can be configured so that we stop seeing ads on the mobile. In the case we are dealing with today, we are going to eliminate spam and advertising from the notification center in any Xiaomi.
Advertising in Xiaomi notifications
MIUI 12 is the latest version of the brand’s Android-based operating system. As such, it comes with interesting features but dragging problems from after iterations of the software, such as the appearance of personalized ads in many of its corners.
During the launch of MIUI 12 , it was the brand itself who mentioned the presence of an option that would allow the user to disable ads throughout the system , but many users do not locate it. The reason is that this feature is not present in all versions of the manufacturer’s system, as it can be in the global build. If you are a MIUI 12 user and you want to clean your smartphone in depth, this is how you can do it.
Ads can appear in system apps and some other corner of the mobile but, without a doubt, where it is most annoying is in the notification center, generating alerts that can get us completely desperate.
If you have the last layer of branding, the process to remove Xiaomi’s advertising from the notification center is to disable the MSA process.
What is the MSA?
MSA, short for MIUI System Ads , is one of the main reasons we see ads in stock apps and in the notification center. This is precisely the setting that we have to deactivate so that the system continues to display ads in the form of an alert within the notification center
- Open the Settings app.
- Access the Passwords and security menu
- Enter the Authorization and revocation options.
- Locate the MSA options and disable them
Once this process is done, you must do the following so that everything is properly configured:
- Within the MSA options, scroll down and locate the GetApps menu
- Disable it as well.
- You will receive a 10 second warning message asking if you are sure you want to do this.
- After finishing the countdown, choose Revoke.
- The system may not allow it in the first attempt. If so, try again until it shuts down.
This will ensure that even when you restart or turn off the phone, the given order is maintained and MSA remains disabled, not showing any more ads in the notification center of your Xiaomi .
