swiftkeyOne of the great things about the SwiftKey keyboard is that it learns how you type, thus over time it will eventually figure out your style of writing and what kind of words they predict you might want to use next. It’s great for efficiency, but also a bit creepy and also a bit worrying from a privacy point of view.

SwiftKey has long stated that the keyboard won’t learn anything sensitive about you such as passwords or long numbers that could be your credit card, but in case that wasn’t enough, not to worry as the latest update to the app introduces Incognito Mode. Just like Incognito Mode in Chrome, the mode on SwiftKey basically stops the app from learning words and phrase while it is active.

This means that while you’re using it in Incognito Mode, you don’t have to worry about the app learning new words or phrases. This might come in handy when you’re filling out forms that might require sensitive information. The feature was actually introduced back in October in beta, but it looks like it has finally been made available to everyone.

If you’d like to get your hands on the latest update of SwiftKey, then be sure to head on over to the Google Play Store for the update.
