Huawei Pulls Phone Lock Screen Ads, Says It Has Nothing to Do with Them
Huawei has removed the lock screen ads that mysteriously appeared on a number of smartphones earlier this week, yet the company claims it’s not the one to blame for this incident.
Ads have started showing up on several Huawei phone models, including the high-end P30 Pro, on June 13, and according to a number of user reports, they were served through Magazine Unlock, a feature that sets a different lock screen background on each unlock.
The ads pointed users to Booking.com, a hotel reservation website, and could only be blocked by completely disabling Magazine Unlock on the targeted devices.
But in a statement provided to DT, Huawei says it’s not the one to blame for the ads.
