I dislike the way keyboards build a personal language library. I currently use Huawei Swype and whilst yes, every now and then I can clear the library, I would like to not have to do that.

Is there any way to disable this feature on Swype?

  • Have you tried using the Google Keyboard application? It pretty much allows you to disable personalized corrections and a few more options. – benjamin Oct 21 '15 at 7:38

    @benjaminS I did actually check it out because it comes pre-loaded on my phone as an alternative. I apparently overlooked the setting that was necessary! Make it an answer and take the points, it isn't the prettiest of keyboards but it does what I wanted where Swype seemed to refuse to – nickson104 Oct 21 '15 at 7:42
  • I just want you you to note that a part of the question is off-topic here (e.g. Is there an app that does X? ). Visit help center to know what's on-topic here et al. – Firelord Nov 10 '15 at 16:11
  • @Firelord thanks for pointing it out, I admit I did not visit the android stack's help centre, probably should have done that before posting the question. Thanks for the guidance – nickson104 Nov 10 '15 at 18:37
  • I removed the bit about asking for recommendations. This question is fine as it is, currently. – ale Nov 23 '15 at 21:09

You have the option to change the following settings:

  • Block offensive words: Block Google Keyboard from suggesting potentially offensive words.

  • Auto-correction: Set the spacebar and any inserted punctuation to automatically correct mistyped words.

  • Show correction suggestions: Show suggested words while typing.

  • Personalized corrections: Set Google Keyboard to learn from your typing to improve its suggestions to you.

  • Suggest Contact names: Use names from your contacts for suggestions and corrections.

  • Next-word suggestions: Use the previous word in making suggestions.
