Remove ads by disabling the MSA process

The biggest reason for seeing ads in stock apps is the background running MSA or MIUI system advertising process. In previous versions of MIUI, you have to keep the switch off several times before it is actually disabled, but in our experience, disabling it in MIUI 11 &12 is very simple.

  • Open the Settings app.
  • Navigate to Password and Security> Authorization and Revocation.
  • You will see ‘MSA‘ listed here with a little green Android logo. Toggle this setting.
  • While you’re here, do the same for GetApps, which should be the last on the list.
  • You will get a 10-second warning message if you are sure you want to do it.
  • After the countdown, press Rivoc. In case it doesn’t let you toggle it at first, try it again until it closes.
    Even if you reboot your phone, the MSA must be disabled.
