How to Get Rid of in-App Advertisements on Xiaomi’s MIUI 13

sells smartphones at nearly every price point at razor-thin margins but more than makes up for it through other avenues, one of which is the in-app advertisements littered throughout its skin called MIUI. However, there is a way to get rid of these pesky advertisements. Let us show you how.

The firm’s three sub-brands — Mi, Redmi, and Poco — share MIUI 13 based on 12. Flagships and budget-oriented devices are all plagued by advertisements in pre-installed apps. Making matters worse, some are system apps that cannot be uninstalled or replaced.

To eliminate ads, you must dive into the settings for each ad-ridden app and turn off specific toggles. Here’s how to do it:

Revoke MSA’s Authorizations

MSA, or MIUI System Ads, is a service responsible for delivering ads on your device. Disabling it should remove most of the apps from MIUI, but we suggest opting out of advertisements in each app for good measure.

Step 1: Open the Settings app. Scroll down and tap Passwords & security.
Then tap on Authorisation & revocation.

Step 2: Find MSA and turn off the toggle adjacent to it in the list of system services. A pop-up requesting confirmation will show up, but the Revoke button will be greyed out for 10 seconds to prevent accidental revocation.

Step 3: Once it is enabled, tap the Revoke button.


Disable Ads in the GetApps Store
