Ads are showing on some HTC Qwerty keyboards
Recently, ads started to appear on top of the default keyboard on some HTC flagship smartphones and users are not happy with it. According to MSPowerUser, the ads for third-party services were possibly pulled from Google’s AdSense service.
There’s also a possibility that TouchPal, which is HTC’s default keyboard, have added the ads without notifying HTC. The smartphone company was unaware of this issue until some of its users tweeted them about it. In the meantime, HTC recommends uninstalling recent updates to the TouchPal keyboard app by going to Settings -> Apps -> All apps -> TouchPal -> Uninstall updates.
Pls.go to Settings>Apps>All apps>Look for the app (TouchPal)>Uninstall updates. For assistance please go to https://t.co/etXmQQWcjL.
