Why does an Android keyboard need to see your camera and log files – and why does it phone home to China?


Re: F-Droid only if you can

Phoning home to China leaves your phone open to being completely taken over. Any connections that cross the "Great Firewall" can be intercepted. Google is not going to install malware or sling ads on your lockscreen. This keyboard app is still in playstore, and one of the multitude of permissions is, "download files with out notice" . Helloooow? Does that alone but bother you. Perhaps it would be best if you did a little homework before embarrassing yourself.
