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


Re: Almost every app I consider for installation


You might go have a look at no-root firewall apps in playstore. There are many to choose from now, and Lostnet has a geo blocking function. You can fire up these when using apps that are suspect. Or run it all the time.

Now, for those who don't think it's a big deal about this keyboard app, then I suggest looking at how few permissions other well known keyboard apps ask for. Almost all are about half the amount.
