How to Remove Ads in Poco X5 Pro? (Tutorial)

While Poco X5 Pro is a powerful and affordable smartphone, it comes with a few pre-installed apps that display ads. These ads can be annoying and intrusive, especially when you’re trying to use your phone for work or entertainment. 

Fortunately, there are a few easy ways to remove these ads without rooting your Poco X5 Pro or installing third-party apps.

Method 1: Disabling Ads by Turning Off the MSA Application

The primary culprit behind ads on your Poco X5 Pro is the MSA (MIUI System Ads) process. This process collects data about your usage habits and utilizes it to target ads that align with your preferences.

  5. A pop-up window will appear. Wait for the countdown to complete.
  6. Then tap “Revoke” to confirm.
  7. Also, disable “GetApps” from the list.

Once you have turned off the MSA application, you should see a significant reduction in ads on your Poco X5 Pro. You may still see a few ads from time to time, but they should be much less intrusive.
