    The first method to disable ads is to toggle an app or a service that is solely responsible for delivering ads in MIUI and this service is called the MSA app or ‘MIUI System Ads’ and toggling/disabling this app plays a vital role in removing ads.

    • First, Go to “Settings”.
    • Tab on the “Additional Settings”.
    • Click on “Authorization and Revocation” and choose “MSA” option from the menu.
    • Click on the toggle and wait for ten seconds, then press revoke.
