ANDROID GO KEYBOARD APP FOUND SPYING ON 200M USERS

As reported in betanews September 21, 2017 https://betanews.com/2017/09/21/go-keyboard-spying-warning/ the very popular Android Go Keyboard app (200 million installations) is sending personal information about users to remote servers. Making matters potentially worse is that the app is using a technique to download dangerous executable code that is prohibited by Google. Oh, and did I mention this is a Chinese developer?

There are two versions of the app on Google Play–GO Keyboard, Swipe input, GIFS, and GO keyboard – Emoticon keyboard, Free Theme, GIF.

It is strongly recommended to uninstall both of these apps immediately.
