While Huawei has been in news over last couple of weeks after its recent ban in the United States, the company caught attention over internet earlier today for a different reason. According to several Huawei smartphone users, the company has now started putting ads on its smartphones’ lock screens without permission.
Earlier today, a number of users turned to Twitter to complain that they are getting a “booking.com” logo on their smartphones’ lock screen. However, others were quick to point out that the ads are appearing in a small number of models only if someone selects the pre-installed background wallpapers.
As of now, the company hasn’t commented on the complaints. Considering only a small number of users are noticing the advertisements without prior warning, it might be a small issue related to update as other manufacturers faced similar problems in past. As a result, you might want to see if Huawei provides any update on the latest advertising problem going forward.
