HTC 10 keyboard suddenly starts showing ads, fix is on the way

HTC 10 keyboard suddenly starts showing ads, fix is on the way

It added that the ads cropped up in the keyboard due to an error. Users are seeing ads for third-party services, possibly pulled from Google's AdSense service, on top of the keyboard whenever they are typing something.

Over the weekend, an update to the TouchPal Keyboard for HTC flipped the switch on advertisements within the keyboard.

HTC apologises after ads appearing on the default keyboard

Now, it appears that the free version of the app - which comes pre-installed on numerous devices, including flagship models such as the HTC 10 - is showing ads. If you are still seeing the adverts on the default keyboard on the HTC 10, it is recommended to install Gboard. However, these ads on the HTC 10 keyboard are coming due to their use of a third party keyboard as their default keyboard app. HTC uses "TouchPal for HTC" as their default HTC 10 keyboard app. On the other hand, it does means that users will have to remain stuck on that older version of the keyboard, which could also leave them open to experiencing bugs that may be fixed in future versions.

"I am done with your junk app forever", said Ramtin. However, the one place that you do not expect to ever see ads on is on your phone's default software. "You don't care about anything other than money". Meanwhile, angry users have also started leaving negative reviews for the app on the Play Store, and it's quite obvious that if the change isn't reverted, the rating will only be dipping from the impressive 4.3/5 stars that it now boasts. However, HTC has since responded to the public and says this was done out of error and shouldn't have happened.
