If you toggle off the ads on a system level, it may not affect all apps.
Some apps needs it disabled separately.
For file manager it is settings - about - recommendations.

File manager can disable ads in Settings - About - Recommendations (set it to off).

I also own a Poco X3 Pro and there are ads that cannot be turned off, especially from the default File Manager app. But since I am a deGoogler, I have installed ArrowOS with microG in it and never looked back.

If GSMArena themselves can mention about the ads that can't be turned off as they did when reviewing the Poco X3 Pro, why would want even to deny that fact? I always thought Sony fanboys are the most toxic people around, but I'm definitely not prepared for Xiaomi fanboys. 😂

All Ads on poco, Xiaomi, Redmi can be disabled. You didn't follow the tutorial properly..
Some settings are in the form of "turn ofd/on recommendation inside settings of system apps like themes and security.

Heck, I even saw ads that can't even be turned off despite already doing so. Still, that is no longer a concern to me.
Anonymous, 06 Sep 2021Looks like you haven't used miui 12.5.
It beat the almighty Samsung in memory management Using modded apk from sites like a2zapk.com and ROCKMODS.NET, never had a bad apk.
I don't even have an Antivirus, no malware either upon scanning.
Most users don't sideload apk files. The ones that do, know where to download them from.
At least we have a choice to sideload apk files easily, without going through jailbreak or root, ios users have no choice yet get their security compromised all the time.
You are more at a risk if you surf p0rn sites or get hacked via simple phising link or trust Apple with their cloud

kev5446, 06 Sep 2021i don't think you are a security expert... iphones can be jailbroken and that enables sid... moreIt's nowhere near the same. Jailbreaking iPhones is so complicated no one but experts bother with it. And those are assumed to know what they are doing. It's the clueless casuals who just want to get that pirated app or game to play and they get APK from god knows where and all they have to do is just turn off safeguards and install it. I've seen too many people disabling antivirus on Windows and running whatever app because antivirus was annoying them with warnings. Heh. I expect nothing different on Android.
This setting, to have any point should be something you decide when setting up new phone and then it's permanent until you factory reset it. It should discourage users enough from switching it off because it would be too much hassle. So it would protect casual users. Advanced users would still be able to uncheck it during first time setup and have no restrictions. Or impose a 7 or 14 day timer when changing, so you can't do it impulsively and most casual users would just not bother with it after that long and opt for a safer verified source instead that's allowed. That's how I'd do it knowing how dismissive and clueless users are in general.
Cyberchum, 04 Sep 2021Nice feature. I also like how MIUI issues extensive warnings, and even makes one wait, before ... morejajajaj yeah i "love" that ... wasting my time before enabling settings ..the best experience is Xiaomi for the price of the hardware with custom open source rom for freedom and expression ..using vpn of course ..
AnonD-1003038, 05 Sep 2021Yeah, I know how that works. Seen it countless times. When people are so desperate at loading ... morei don't think you are a security expert... iphones can be jailbroken and that enables sideloading.. but honestly iphones are good phones but the reason Huawei and now Xiaomi and are and will take over the market is affordable technology for poor people which Apple doesn't offer .. it maximizes profit over humanity . Xiaomi phones are very good ..the quality improves daily . it's better to let China spie on you if you live in USA .. it's better to let USA spy on you when you live in China ..in Europe can you let either spy on you . Having said that pure android aosp open source is the best interface as a base to allow for personal customisation and for global open source and transparency reasons and the support of the poor and the liberation for power users from corporates ...
you can flash a treble gsi.. pure android ... works quite well ..only bug is dt2w

Idk what people ranting on in comments. But I'm using Poco f2 pro. And I see ads everhtime. I did switch it off but still. It's there. Use the cleaner, ad at the end. Use security check. Ad. Download app. Ad. Do anything. Ad. Miui is adware. Even on mi 10s Xiaomi 11's redmi's, pocos, ads everywhere. Their high end phones use optical sensor not ultrasonic. Garbage.
