Swiftkey has been downloaded on more than 50 million occasions in the Google Play Store alone. This tells you just how this keyboard application’s popularity is growing day and night.
One of the major advantages of Swiftkey keyboard is the fact that it constantly learns your words in order to give you better predictions when typing something. Well, this is something that you also get with a bunch of other keyboards, including many default versions from Samsung, Google, Huawei and so on. However, the latest update to Swiftkey wants to make a difference thanks to the addition of incognito mode.
As you may know from previous encounters with this term, the addition of incognito mode to Swiftkey is only but aimed at making things a little more private. By learning your words, it means that the application stores your data somewhere. If you hate this idea, the incognito mode is for you. When turned on, the feature will prevent Swiftkey keyboard from learning the words that you type.
To access the incognito mode, you need to go through the hamburger menu located on the top left-hand side of the keyboard. This will open up a menu at the bottom of your screen – you can select the Incognito option and you will be notified that this option will stop the app from learning words. This will only happen the first time you make this switch, but you won’t be warned during other subsequent changes to incognito mode.
Just like you wouldn’t like your kids to learn or rather hear every single word you say, the story is the same with keyboards. This feature will help you hide certain terms or pieces of information from Swiftkey, thus ensuring that your privacy is maintained. Remember, you must opt out of incognito mode if you want the app to keep showing you better predictions when typing.
You can grab yourself the latest version from the Google Play Store for free.
