Amazon has been on a roll lately and it is offering prime exclusive phones at unbelievably discounted rates but unfortunately, they come with the lock screen and notification ads. These devices also come filled with bloatware like Kindle, video, Amazon shopping, and a bunch of music apps. Recently, Amazon revealed that they will be removing the lock screen and notification ads on the Prime Exclusive devices. However, you will first need to update. Today, in this post, we will show you how you can easily remove the Amazon lock screen and notification ads on any Prime Exclusive device.
Another alternative implemented by Amazon is that it gives its users a choice where the user needs to decide if they want a device lower in price but filled with ads, or the same device without ads at a higher cost. After reading this post, even if you had chosen the first option, you would still be able to remove all the Amazon ads and bloatware from any Prime Exclusive device. There was another way to disable the lock screen ads before, but it has been removed as most users found it very complicated.
Amazon took this option to remove ads as some of the lock screen ads were vulnerable to security flaws which enabled the hackers to bypass the lock screen even without having to know that device’s pattern/password/pin. This became a big issue at a time and was resolved only when on-body detection was turned off in Smart Lock. If you want to remove the Amazon lock screen ads on any Prime Exclusive device, you will need to download an APK file which is mentioned below.We really thankful to DarkPhoenix7878, Member over Xda for this APK
- This method will only work for Amazon Prime Exclusive phones
- It does not erase the data but a backup of the device’s data must always be taken from time to time
- Make sure that the device has more than 50% battery so that it doesn’t shut down in between
