2) Nice to offer Gboard instead, Gboard tracks ALL(!) your typings. Including Private Banking, Accounts, etc informations... Gboard is a KEYLOGGER (almost as dangerous as a virus)!

2a) I tried to install several keyboards (downloaded from Google Play Store), they are NOT WORKING on XZ Premium (i tried several indie keyboards, and some bigger corporations' keyboards, for example ASUS's keyboard. Non of them works.


2) EVERY keyboard can potentially collect all data you type, unless you code your own keyboard app, or compile one yourself from a published source code.

2a) have you tried setting up the keyboard apps that you've downloaded in Settings > Languages & input > On-screen keyboard > Manage keyboards? they need to be enabled before you can use it. I've tried several different keyboard apps from Play Store and they all worked for me.

Remove SwiftKey

I just want to know that how to completely uninstall SwiftKey from my device. The app is disabled now and also I want to uninstall it. Unfortunately I can't. So please help me. Gboard is my favorite keyboard. I don't need 2 keyboards in 1 device. Thank you.

Re: Remove swiftkey

I've used Swype for years, it's great and I'm just used to it. I can't un-install the default Swiftkey or disable it. This is a huge mistake Sony.

I've sold the phone and I won't ever buy another Sony mobile.

Re: Remove swiftkey

The xperia keybord versions on Play store and latest on apkmirror are not compatible with my xperia X performance (Android 8.0). Is there any compatible version available?

Re: Remove swiftkey

SwiftKey us so horiable that I might return my phone, this is rediculous. Why am I forced to use this keyboard? I tried to install Google keyboard and it couldn't install... This is not the experience I was looking for, I will make these issues known, thank you.
