Hello

Recently i have a problem when my keyboard opens on my HTC10. It almost always shows an add. I checked my device for recently installed apps but i didnt install some in over a month.

Also it is the default keyboard and i never installed another one before.

Yea, this is a known issue involving the default HTC keyboard at the moment, No idea why they thought it was a good idea to do that but if it's problematic to you, Switch keyboards.

UPDATE: HTC knows and this is not an intended plan by them

"HTC this evening gave the following statement. "Due to an error, some HTC customers have reported seeing ads on their phone's keyboard. This is absolutely not the experience we intended, and we're working to immediately fix the error and remove the ads as quickly as possible."-Jeff Gordon, HTC Global PR."
