Greetings Dear MI Fans,

   As far as I know, due to Google's compliance Xiaomi had to enable advertisement in MIUI Global ROM, which is too much annoying for the die-hard MIUI Fans. Thank god, Xiaomi has left us with a way to disable ads. on MIUI. But, you need to go through ad-enabled apps & had to disable ads. manually.

So, let's begin to disable ads. from MIUI 10:

    First of all, While setting up your new phone with MIUI 10, you have to opt-out "Personalized Ad Recommendations" which will minimize the appearance of random ads. while using your Xiaomi phone.

     If you forgot to disable it during set up, then please go to SettingsAdditional SettingsPrivacy, scroll down to find "Ad Services", tap it and then on the next page disable "Personalized Ad Recommendations".

Now, let's go through the Ad-enabled MIUI Apps & Features to Disable Ads:

1. App Lock: Till now, I haven't seen any ads. in the App Lock feature. But when I checked its settings, I found the option "Receive Recommendations" which means it might be responsible some random ads. or Xiaomi gonna implement ads. which would be displayed at the time you will about to unlock the app. So, please disable 'Receive Recommendations' from App Lock Settings.

2. App Scanner: Whenever, you install a new app from the sources other than Mi App Store, it is scanned for viruses & vulnerability. Wow, that's good about MIUI 10, but the App Scanner page contains ads which is quite annoying. In order to disable it, open Settings for App Scanner by Tapping the Settings Icon at the top right corner of the screen and turn-off 'Receive Recommendations'.

3. App Vault: It brings all the important notifications and app features together. In App Vault, you can find the features you need most and use them, even without starting the app. But, the main concern is, it contains ads too. In order to disable ads, Scroll down in App Vault and click on Customize. In the Customization screen, scroll and find the option Recommended, then click on red circle with - sign on the left.

4. Boost Speed: It is one of the feature provided by Security App and is useful to boost up the device performance by clearing cache & RAM. It contain ads as well. To disable ads, click on Settings button at Top Right corner & in the Settings, turn off Receive Recommendations.

5. Mi Browser: To disable ads. from Browser, click on 3 lines at the bottom right corner & choose Settings from the pop-up menu. In Settings page, scroll down and click on Privacy & Security, then on the next page opened turn off 'Personalized Services'.

6. Cleaner: It is a very useful feature and cleans cache, residual files & RAM etc. to ensure smooth performance of the phone. But the sad thing is, it contain ads too. In the Cleaner's page, click on Deep Clean icon at the top right corner, on the next page tap the Settings button at top right corner and in the Settings page, find out Receive Recommendations, then disable it.

7. Downloads: Yeah, you got it right. Open the Downloads app, click on the 3 dots at top right corner & choose Settings from the pop-up menu. In Settings page, disable Show Recommended Content.

8. File Manager: Since last year Mi File Manager is officially made available for non-Mi phones too, but alike other open source apps, it does support in-app ads. In order to get rid of the ads, after opening the File Manager, click on 3 lines at the Top Left corner, from the pop-up menu choose Settings. In the Settings page, click on About and then turn off the switch for Recommendations.

9. Mi Music: It's a default music player for MIUI 10. It's fabulous than any other music player available in the market, but nowadays, Mi Music too started showing ads up. So, tap on the 3 lines at top left corner & in the drop down menu, click on Settings. In the Settings page, click on Advanced Settings and then disable the option 'Receive Recommendations'.

10. Mi Video: It's a default video player in MIUI 10 & supports almost all the commonly used video formats. It comes with ads nowadys & quite annoying for the Mi Fans. So, tap on Account option at bottom right & then select Settings. In the Settings page, turn off 'Online Recommendations' option to disable ads.

11. Recents: In the recents page, there are not the ads actually, but the sugested system apps to use to enhance system performance. But, in reality whatever is sugested without concent of user called as ads & that's why, I've included this one too. In order to disable recommendations, go to SettingsHomescreen & Recents and there disable 'Show Sugestions' option.

12. Security & Security Scan: MIUI 10 provides the maximum security with its revamped Security Center, but here, the main concern is that it's an ad-enabled app too. So, In the Security app interface, tap Settings icon at the top right corner & scroll down to disable 'Receive Recommendations'.

Security Scan feature also shows ads but there is no such option to disable ads. So, you can't get rid of the ads there.

13. Mi Theme Manager: It's one of the most popular MIUI feature(Themes) which allows UI customization and annoys you with some ads in between. To disable ads, tap on Smiling Face icon at bottom right corner & then click on Settings. In the Settings page, turn off 'Recommendations' option.

You can access & customize Settings for all these MIUI Features from SettingsSystem Apps too.

It's all for now, as & when required, I'll add the content to let you get rid of the ads in MIUI 10.
