Default HTC 10 Keyboard App Begins Showing Ads To Users

But it doesn't seem like the gremlin is limited to the HTC 10 though, as several users have noted that their HTC U11 is displaying identical behaviour. Instead, it's all because of a third-party glitch.

TouchPal is a well-known company that is mainly known for its keyboard app, which is used as the default keyboard in some Android smartphones by many companies, including HTC, Lenovo, ZTE, Huawei, and Alcatel among others. Before you start getting mad at HTC, it might not even be the company's fault.

If you're fine with waiting, HTC is already working (via Engadget) to remove the ads, so I'd assume that an update will be pushed in the next couple of days. HTC tweeted, "Pls.go to Settings Apps All apps Look for the app (TouchPal) Uninstall updates". For now, the two ways of fixing this are to uninstall updates on TouchPal on your device, and the second is to just use another keyboard, like Gboard. Removing those ads require users to purchase the paid version of the keyboard.

"Due to an error, some HTC customers have reported seeing ads on their phone's keyboard".

Britain and European Union 'get to work' on fresh Brexit talks
Davis added that apart from citizens' rights and the UK's exit bill, Northern Ireland issues are also a priority of these talks. The sides have less than two years to settle terms before Britain leaves - either with a deal or without - on March 30, 2019.

During the past few days, HTC users have been complaining that they are seeing ads on the company's in-built keyboard app.

For its part, HTC has responded to widespread anger with the promise of a "fix" coming soon, as "this is absolutely not the experience we intended". These were expressed with words that you wouldn't want your kids to see.

While Microsoft has always been criticised for advertising its own services, such as OneDrive, on Windows 10, HTC smartphone owners are complaining that they are seeing ads for third-party services (below), possibly pulled from Google's AdSense service, whenever they are typing something. Not only is it annoying, the ads use space that could be employed in a way to make the keyboard better.
