How to remove system ads from Xiaomi’s MIUI

If you have logged in via your MI Account there is one way to reduce systemwide advertisements a lot. These ads show up when you open certain pre-loaded apps, and among the widgets that show up when you swipe to the left on the default home screen. Follow these steps:

  • Go to Settings  Additional settings  Authorization & revocation.
  • Now scroll down and disable msa.
  • Tap Revoke in the pop-up.
  • You will see an error that reads “Couldn’t revoke authorization” when you do this for the first time. Try step 2 and 3 once more, and you’ll see a message saying that it’s been revoked.




Another thing you must do is disable personalized ad recommendations. This will stop systemwide data tracking for ads, even if it doesn’t disable any ads. However, multiple Xiaomi apps such as Mi Browser still show ads. Here’s how you can go to each app manually and disable ads.


Disable Advertising Identifier

  • Open Settings.
  • Go to Additional Settings  Privacy  Ad services.
  • Turn off Personalized Ad Recommendation.


To disable ads in Mi File Manager follow the below steps.
  1. Open Mi File Manager app.
  2. Tap on three horizontal lines at the top corner of Mi File Explorer.
  3. Go to Settings and About.
  4. Turn off Recommendations.



How to remove ads from Xiaomi’s MI Browser

The Mi Browser shows a lot of ads on the start page. You can partially get rid of these via the following steps:

  • Open Mi Browser.
  • Tap the three vertical lines aka hamburger icon on the bottom-right.
  • Tap Settings.
  • Tap Notifications. Turn it off.
  • Go back to the previous page. Tap Privacy & security.
  • Now disable Recommended for you.
  • Go back to the previous page and tap Advanced.
  • Now tap Top sites order and disable Receive recommendations.

This complicated dance around the Mi Browser’s settings menu was to ensure that it can’t send you spam notifications and to get rid of the default MI Browser start page, where there are several ads that are almost impossible to remove. The next time you open MI Browser, your new default start page will load up.



How to remove ads from MIUI Security

To get rid of ads from MIUI Security app, follow these steps:

  • Open the MIUI Security app.
  • Tap Settings icon on the top-right.
  • Scroll down and disable Receive recommendations.




How to remove ads from Cleaner

The Cleaner app comes pre-loaded on MIUI, here’s how to stop ads from that:

  • Open the MIUI Security app.
  • Tap Settings icon on the top-right.
  • Tap Cleaner.
  • Scroll down and disable Receive recommendations.




How to disable ads from MIUI Downloads app

Even the Downloads app shows ads in MIUI. Here’s how to remove these ads:

  • Open MIUI’s Downloads app.
  • Tap the three vertical dots icon on the top-right.
  • Tap Settings.
  • Disable Show recommended content.
  • You will see a pop-up saying you won’t be able to view recommended sources if you do this. Tap OKbecause no one wants to see these ads.


How to remove ads from Mi Music app

Not even the Mi Music app has been spared the ad treatment. Here’s how to get rid of invasive ads from there:

  • Open Mi Music.
  • Tap the three vertical lines aka hamburger icon on the top-left.
  • Tap Settings.
  • Tap Advanced settings.
  • Disable Receive recommendations.



How to disable ads from the Mi Video app

Here’s how to clear the ad clutter from the Mi Video app:

  • Open the Mi Video app.
  • Tap the three vertical lines aka hamburger icon on the top-left.
  • Tap Settings.
  • Turn off Online recommendation.
  • Turn off Push message. This will disable recommended videos showing up in the app along with notifications.




How to remove promoted apps from MIUI folders

Lots of app folders have promoted apps that are waiting to be downloaded. These annoying ads can be removed by following these steps:

  • Open any app folder on your Xiaomi smartphone.
  • Tap the name of the folder.
  • Disable Promoted apps.

That's because your not signed into miui.
See small disclaimer at bottom, if not signed in it cannot make changes in its servers.

Login, in one attempt it will switch off.
