GO Keyboard

Cover art

What it does: GO Keyboard is a keyboard replacement app with extra features

Offenses:

  • Privacy Concern
  • Questionable Permissions
  • Naughty Dev
  • Virus

We’re well acquainted with the developer GOMO Apps here on Android Blacklist, in fact, they are one of our naughty developers because they have an history of shady apps. As it turns out all 3(!) versions of GO keyboard spy on its users AND on top of that offers plugins that are known adware. According to the original article, GO keyboard shares your “Google account email in addition to language, IMSI, location, network type, screen size, Android version and build, device model, etc.”

Keyboard replacements are great, but you really do have to be careful with them because they can easily log whatever you type into them and in this case your device info.

Alternatives: SwiftKey, Fleksy, Gboard, Fleksy, MultiLing Keyboard

    OH BlacklIst, o teclado da Google é bom, por ser nativo da mesma, é seguro ate ao digitar senhas variadas especialmente as de cartões de créditos, de telas de bloqueios e aplicativos??

      A Google vê o que escreves, mas usa esses dados para mostrar anuncios especificos, a Google em si não tem grandes motivos para usar “keyloggers” portanto eu diria que é seguro. Se quer um teclado que não se liga à internet de todo sugiro o MultiLing Keyboard. Pessoalmente uso o SwiftKey
