Why Grammarly needs full access on iOS

The Grammarly Keyboard needs full access in order to connect to the internet. The keyboard needs an internet connection because we use powerful servers to check your text and provide corrections. Without full access, you can still type with the keyboard, but Grammarly can’t check your text and provide writing suggestions.

The Grammarly Keyboard only checks the text you type while using it. This means that Grammarly does not see information from any of your other keyboards, including the default keyboard for iOS. We know that what you write on your phone is private, so we have encryption and several other measures in place to make sure it stays that way.

Grammarly’s product is blocked from accessing text in fields marked “sensitive.” This means that the Grammarly Keyboard does not see anything typed in credit card forms, password fields, URL fields, or fields where similar private information is provided. 

We value the trust our customers put in us to keep their information safe and secure. Visit Grammarly’s Trust Center to learn about our user-first approach to privacy and security. Learn more about Grammarly security operations, policies, practices, and attestations on this page.
