"HTML tags are not allowed" when trying to update a profile

When trying to update or add information into any of the fields in the profile of a user (myself included) I get the following error:

The following errors occurred when trying to save your profile
HTML tags are not allowed

I can replicate this error with fresh SMF 2.1.2 files (but using my previous database).

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Kind regards.

UPDATE: I have just registered a new test user and can change its fields without errors. I have tried to compare the data registered in the MySQL database of my user and the new user and I am completely unable to find anything weird. In any case, in my profile there is no HTML whatsoever.

Yes, it seems to be the same issue as far as I can tell. I am marking this as solved. @Ramón Cutanda please feel free to mark it not solved if it is not the same issue.

Hello again:

I have been so busy that I have not been able to actually try the proposed solution until today. I can confirm it works. Thank you!
