How to officially remove the lock screen ads on Huawei & Honor smartphones!

Earlier today, I published news that Huawei and Honor phones were displaying adverts on the lock screen. This affected most Huawei and Honor phones.

Well, Huawei and Honor reached out to me and explained the issue, and more importantly how to remove the Booking.com adverts.

See below –

Dear users, we thank you for your candid comments, we are sorry for the inconvenience caused to your experience.

Please kindly be informed that we have taken down those lock-screen images from our servers, as they should not be appearing on lock-screen interfaces.

For the image/s already downloaded to your phone, you may delete as per following:

1) When the image appears on the screen, slide up from the bottom edge of the screen, and the operation toolbar appears;

2) Click the “Delete” button and click “Remove” in the confirmation box which pops up.

We will continue to improve our services and brings you excellent user experience.

So there we have it, Booking.com added adverts into their images, that then appeared on Huawei and Honor phones.
