Is this some kind of April fools joke? I've had this phone for 8 months now and I just started to see ads in filemanager. Why are they there and how on earth do they follow me? I was looking for this heater and boom just got a relevant ad.

Ads are part of the MIUI system, if you are using a global ROM. It doesn't occur mostly in EU region due to restrictions, but the advertisement agent is still present in the system. It could be that any recent update of File Manager triggered the Ad manager. Turn off all recommendations in stock apps. Follow this guide to turn off ads wherever applicable -

Adding to the steps mentioned in the thread, revoke authorization privileges for 'msa' under Settings » Additional settings » Authorization and revocation. This is responsible for the system ads. Revoking it may show some errors, but just open it again and try again until revoked.

Cheers! :-)
