    It's the same as on IOS and Android for all keyboards. I only have Android, so I don't know how exactly it works in IOS, but on Android the keyboard collects the same kind of info to improve typing and user experience. It's nothing new, and really it's being blown out of proportion. It's not like it's collecting exact sentences, emails, or texts. It just tracks your typing style to better predict and suggest better options. No one is sitting there reading texts or emails.

    Disabling monitoring keyboard task will also disable any typing in Store, Start, Edge, Calc, etc.

    schtasks /Change /TN "Microsoft\Windows\TextServicesFramework\MsCtfMonitor" /Disable
    schtasks /End /TN "Microsoft\Windows\TextServicesFramework\MsCtfMonitor"

    Who gives a toss about the NSA. As far as I can tell their jurisdiction only applies in USA - the alleged land of the free - LOL.
    Actually it's just the opposite. The US NSA is supposed to have very limited jurisdiction within the USA and the vast majority of their data collection is supposed to be spying on other countries.
