Last week, several user reports emerged on Reddit and Twitter indicating the travel site Booking.com ads seem to have been appearing on the lock screens of the Huawei devices that included flagship models P30 Pro and mid-range devices like the P20 Lite as well. The reports cited these ads started appearing while they started setting wallpapers within the Magazine feature, which is a built-in feature for wallpapers in Huawei devices.
The company had issued a statement indicating that they re sorry for the inconvenience caused and further assures that they have taken down those lock screen images from their servers suggesting those ads would indeed not show up on their devices in the future. The company had further given instructions to the users who have already downloaded those lock screen images, which you can check in the source link provided below.
