Huawei Starts Showing Ads in Smartphones’ Lock Screen without Users’ Permissions

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.
