How do I opt out of the annoying advertisements, like the "Lenovo Rewards" messages?
How do I opt out of the annoying "Lenovo Rewards" and other related advertisements? I have "What's New" and "Apps to Discover" turned off in the "customize companion" settings, but I'm still getting annoying promotions like this.

Same here. I purchased a laptop yesterday. I received my first NEWS yesterday. I opted out immediately. I received my second news today! WTF? Once I received the latop I ordered, I'm FILTERING ALL EMAILS FROM LENOVO TO SPAM!
TURN THESE OFF
I paid for this machine.
get this off my machine commented
get your **** off my machine. Your app is causing me great frustration. I do not want your notifications and I do not want spying on me and my machine. I purchased your machine. I do not deserve to be the victim of your application. I never wanted it. Get it off.
Adding another voice, please stop these ads!
Please let me know how I can disable your advertisements. They really are annoying. I also need to know what is my power supply? I cannot buy a video card without that knowledge and your user guide does not tell me.
I totally agree with other comment: there should NOT BE ANY spamming of my personal desktop. Keep it up and I'll start uninstalling every Lenovo app on my system -- and perhaps look for hardware from a manufacturer that doesn't load it up with software used to hijack my property and my time and attention for their own marketing purposes. This increasing trend from companies like Lenovo and Microsoft is infuriating!
Actually I wouldn't mind entering your monthly contest, but clicking on the message opens companion then takes me to Microsoft store to log in. I don't have a Microsoft login (or want one) so this looks useless to me. I'll follow this thread to find out how to disable, if you ever answer
there should NOT BE ANY Notifications at all. You do not have the right to annoy your own customers with your useless notifications. It is a shame that after all this time you still have not resolved the problem you created for your own customers...
The frequency of such awful, annoying updates should be zero. I bought a laptop to be productive on not to be constantly marketed to with rude interrruptions.
That's why I'm here too. How do you turn that off? This is a Thinkpad. I didn't sign up for ads.
