I get same result as bob reported, but also cannot get rid of Flashtalking in addition to Artsai. So I have 2 unwanted listed.
Flashtalking took a second attempt at removing. After the initial cleanup, I ran it a second time.
Hope that helps.

I have now tried 3 times and Flashtalking is still not gone. But that is all that is there. Artsai is successfully taken care of.

Here's my information.


What I can't get rid of via the AOS app or manually is the following:

I find it weird that we have the same advertisers, but I can't get rid of Flashtalking, but you can't get rid of Artsai. And I can't manually opt out of Flashtalking (there's an opt out button, but it does nothing).

Yes, it's just not working. I'll just have to wait for the devs to fix the main issue.
