Here we are going to tell you how you can turn off autocorrect on your phone so you won’t send an inappropriate message to a family member.
You can easily turn this feature off from the settings on your Android. But if you want, you can turn it back on too pretty easily. We will also tell you about some tricks related to the autocorrect feature as a bonus.
How to Turn off Autocorrect on Android Smartphones
- Open your phone and go to the Settings > System > Language and Input > Virtual Keyboard > Gboard.
- Here you will find a lot of settings related to the Gboard which is the default keyboard in your phone.
- Select Text correction. Inside that, you will find the Auto-correction feature turned on which you can turn off using the toggle.
- Once disabled you can go back to the messaging app and continue what you are doing without worrying about the autocorrection anymore.
If you feel the Gboard is not working as you like then you can install a third-party keyboard on your phone. All keyboards have their own auto-correction feature, so you may like the one with a third-party keyboard.
This is how you can disable the auto-correction feature in Gboard on your Android smartphone. You can turn it on if you want by the same settings and using the toggle.
