SwiftKey

SwiftKey, ‘the Android keyboard that learns from you’, will be getting smarter this week. No longer will you have to open a separate app to view your forgotten passwords because with version 5.3, SwiftKey beta users will be able to utilize the power and security of password manager Dashlane.

Dashlane’s app uses the world’s leading encryption (AES-256) to securely store your passwords and will soon be able to link with SwiftKey to autofill your passwords, making the tedious task of remembering, then successfully entering, your passwords a breeze. You may be concerned about storing all your passwords in one place, but Dashlane’s security model includes multiple levels of security to ensure the highest level of privacy for your data. It is also important to note that SwiftKey will not have access to your data but will act merely as an intermediary between the website you are visiting and Dashlane’s memory.

If you are a SwiftKey Beta user on Android, then this new update should be available for you within the week, and you will have the option to opt-in or out for this feature. If you are not currently a beta user, fear not. You can easily become one by clicking here, which will take you to the signup page. 

In the massive sea of 3rd party Android keyboards, perhaps this is what SwiftKey needs to reassert their dominance. Do you welcome this update, or are you still a bit weary about your keyboard suggesting your passwords? Let us know in the comments.
