Realme has been offering a simple way to solve the issue of ads on the phone, but there is no information yet whether disabling the option in the settings would completely make the ads removed or only a part of them would stop displaying ads, but whatever removing at least some ads from the smartphone would be better than not removing anything, so if you want to remove the ads from your smartphone,
Step 1: Head over to the Settings Page of your Realme Smartphone.
Step 2: Find the Menu stating “Additional Settings”, and choose the Get Recommendations Menu from it.
Step 3: From it, toggle the option stating “Receive App and Content Recommendations” off, this would disable ads from your Realme smartphone.
