If You Are Using GoKeyboard You Could Be At Risk Of Losing Your Private Data




Go keyboard is an android application developed by GOMO DEV Team, and news going around is that it may be stealing your information including your email login details.

The apps have over 200 million users and allegedly communicate with "dozens" of ad networks and third-party trackers. As soon as you install one of the two GO Keyboard apps (GO Keyboard-Emoji keyboard, Swipe input, GIFs " and " GO Keyboard-Emoticon keyboard, Free Theme, GIF." ), information about you is being transmitted.

According to the report , the GO apps send to its server information like your Google email account associated with your Google Playstore, screen size, Android version, build and device model. Since the app records every letter you type on your phone, the server owner could start collecting whatever information he/she wants from GO Keyboard users.

Additionally, the apps communicate with tracking networks and execute code from a remote server.
Although Google has been informed but they are yet to decide what to do.. If you still have it installed on your Android phone, you need to take precautionary measures to secure your data or best of all uninstall the app application and use other alternatives like swiftkey.

Kindly share this information to help inform others.
