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.

Grammarly has additionally taken efforts to block the Grammarly Keyboard from accessing anything you type in search fields, URL fields, email address fields, and fields where similar private information is provided. 

We know that what you write on your phone is private, and we have taken measures to ensure it stays that way. We value the trust our customers put in us to keep their information safe and secure. Read Grammarly’s User Trust Guidelines to learn about our user-first approach to privacy and security.
