    Your Android version, model name, keyboard app name, device status: rooted/non-rooted?

If you want to remove the words used by the keyboard in the prediction, you can remove a particular word by long press on that particular word,a optipn will appear to remove it.


If your keyboard doesn't have a option after long pressing the required word to be hidden/forgotten,you can clear the whole history,a bit extreme but it's pretty easy from the options.


You can do it by removing it from Personal Dictionary.

  • You can access Personal Dictionary in.

settings > Languge and input > Personal Dictionary

There is also possiblity that name is showing because of saved contacts.

  • To disable it go to Spell Checker in Language and Input and uncheck look up for contacts.
