HarmonyOS Update Blocks “Shake to Jump to Ads” Function

In a surprising move, the latest HarmonyOS 4.2 update has added a feature that blocks the notorious “Shake to Jump to Ads” function in Chinese apps. This update is a welcome change for many users who have been frustrated by the intrusive advertisement tactic.

For years, many mobile applications in mainland China have used the “shake to jump to ad” method, where shaking the phone triggers the automatic opening of a full-page ad. This method has caused annoyance and confusion among users, as even a slight vibration can accidentally redirect them to unwanted advertisements.

The issue has become a topic of social concern in China, with rumors circulating that Apple may also ban this advertising tactic in the future. However, HarmonyOS has taken the lead in addressing this problem by introducing the feature to block “shake ad redirects” in its latest update.

According to Chinese media outlet “Quick Technology,” this feature was actually included in the HarmonyOS 4.0.0.200 trial version but was not mentioned in the update log at the time. Now, with the release of HarmonyOS 4.2, users can enjoy a more seamless and uninterrupted mobile experience without the hassle of unwanted ads popping up unexpectedly.

For Huawei users in mainland China, the HarmonyOS 4.2 update is now available for public beta testing. Users can sign up for the early adopter program through the “My Huawei” page and upgrade to the latest version of the operating system.

This update marks a significant step towards improving user experience and protecting users from intrusive advertising tactics. With HarmonyOS leading the way in addressing this issue, it sets a positive example for other operating systems to follow suit.
