    Does anyone know if there's a such thing as a secure keyboard, meaning that it prevents keystroak logging?

    Thanks puppykickr, floris looked promising and i just installed it. I wrote a text encryption app, which is meaningless using gboard or swiftkey, thanks for the input.

    Yeah, FlorisBoard is awesome.

    Especially noteworthy is the ability to change the spacing between the keys, which effectively changes the shape of the keys.
    (Early on in the app's development, I had asked the dev if he could make it to where we could change the shapes of the keys- and this is how he chose to do that.)

    This also is a must have with modern devices that have virtual navigation bars, to keep the spacebar away from the Home button and such.

    Just so you know, there is a beta version on F-Droid as well, called FlorisBoard Beta (go figure).

    It is the quickest way to try out new additions to the app before they are implemented in the normal release.

    They have different signings, so they can both exist on the same device at the same time.

    I'll look for it. Interestingly, f-droid was the first place I looked before posting my question here, and a search for "secure keyboard" returned nothing of note. Neither did Aptiod, and Uptodown apparently went from up to down at the time. Glad you had links.

    Yeah, I had a ton of hassle to get a keyboard that I liked.

    Actually, I pretty much stick with Simple Keyboard, although the above are all on my devices.

    If you only search for 'keyboard' on F-Droid, you will get better results- quite possibly because (A) apps on F-Droid are generally considered to be more secure than from other appstores, and (B) 'secure keyboard' sounds like the name of an individual app you would find on F-Droid.

    Do you also have the IzzySoft repository installed on your F-Droid app?

    There are lots more cool apps to be had there.
