"It was never us, it must some rogue app" says Huawei. Yes sure, some rogue app just randomly loaded images into your magazine unlock on 1000's of users on the same day.

Sure China, we believe you.

I got these adverts on my Mate 20 Pro yesterday. Screw this hippie ****! Adverts on my premium device, just so they can generate some revenue. Anyone want to trade me for a Samsung? **** I am furious.

Lock sreen? What's that? With the fast fingerprint unlock I never see mine anyway.

I understand Xiaomi doing this in India cos there devices are sometimes dirt cheap but Huawei doing this is inexcusable.

Huawei devices are as expensive as Samsung and sometimes Apple.

Their reputation should be the number 1 concern right now.

Trumps motives are very clear but Huawei has done more reputational damage by allowing this.

Regardless of Trump:

Chinese comms company and Chinese OS. You have to be crazy to trust it especially now.

Use a no root firewall for the time being and block all apps you don't want to have access to the internet.

Interesting - my magazine unlock image never changes from the selected wallpaper image I have, and I can't figure out how to re-enable it

Noticed the same thing happening on Tuesday, once I updated the booking app

I'm not surprised.

Is this only happening to people with booking.com app installed?
