What Apple's full access warning actually means

Anytime you allow a keyboard to have full access, Apple displays a warning that says the keyboard can transmit credit card numbers and passwords. However, most app and website developers mark password and credit card fields as “sensitive.” Apple blocks all third-party keyboards (including Grammarly’s) from accessing any field marked sensitive, so in fact the keyboard cannot transmit that information to Grammarly.

On our side, we have additionally blocked our keyboard from accessing anything you type in search fields, URL fields, and email address fields.

We know that what you write on your phone is private, and we have taken measures to ensure it stays that way. Please see our Privacy Policy in the section “How secure is my Information?” for more information.
