#1

Swiftkey, the popular third-party keyboard app which suspended its cloud sync feature back in April on the back of data breach report, has started updating the app with new cloud sync feature. The updated app being rolled out in phases re-enables the cloud sync features.

The new Android app version 6.3.9.79, however, is not available in all regions and could take some time to reach all Swiftkey users across the globe.

The SwiftKey cloud sync has been an important feature for Swiftkey users, which enables seamless text and emoji prediction. Back in April, Swiftkey users reported the app was sending other users’ predictive texts onto their devices. The bug led to Swiftkey populating someone’s prediction and mismatching with other users’ email address.

Post confirmation of the big, SwiftKey suspended its cloud sync feature. SwiftKey posted in its blog post, “This week, a few of our customers noticed unexpected predictions where unfamiliar terms, and in some rare cases emails, appeared when using their mobile phone. We are working quickly to resolve this inconvenience.”

While the issue looked strange, SwiftKey confirmed that the bug did not post a security risk for its users.

SwiftKey is the most popular alternate keyboard app for Android and iOS. The keyboard app was recently purchased by Microsoft for $250 million in cash. SwiftKey also offers several beta apps powered by neural networks and another beta app only to test the emoji prediction of its system.

SwiftKey relies heavily on user behaviour for its next word prediction algorithm and cloud sync was one of the most important feature available with the app.
