Reason Why GO Keyboard Is Now Dangerous To Your Android Phone

   
   
Hundreds of thousands of Android phone owners globally are using popular GO Keyboard as their preferred typing or input app. But the GO Keyboard is now posing some serious threat to users as security researchers from Adguard have issued a warning that the popular Keyboard app is spying on users privacy.

So beware! Go keyboard developed by GOMO DEV Team is stealing your information including your email login details. Can you believe that? That's very dangerous you know?

This put over 200 million people who are using the app in risk as the app allegedly communicate with "dozens" of ad networks and third-party trackers. The two GO Keyboard apps in question are (GO Keyboard-Emoji keyboard, Swipe input, GIFs" and "GO Keyboard-Emoticon keyboard, Free Theme, GIF."). When you install and use any of the above apps, they transmit private information about you. Meanwhile, the most confusing part is the app was voted as the best app of 2016 in 20 countries.

HOW IT HAPPENS

When installed in your Android device, the GO apps reportedly 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.

Also, the apps interact with tracking networks and third-parties and execute code from a remote server.

To battle against this and stop the potential threat, Google has been informed but they are yet to decide what to do. So it will be wise if you will immediately uninstall any GO app in your phone for now until it is fixed and declared safe again.

For the meantime, you can use SwiftKeyboard which is my favorite Android keyboard with its astonishing features or simply use the default GBoard by Google.
