How to switch off text auto completion/correction?


Just received my fairphone (and first smartphone ever) and I am very happy! Only auto completion in any text messaging apps (whatsapp, sms, etc) is driving me nuts. How to switch it off? I googled quite a bit, should be somewhere under system settings, language and input, keyboard and input methods, but then???

Anyone any idea? Thanks!


You’re certainly on the right track! In “Keyboard and input methods” touch the settings symbol behind your activated input method. You can edit your text correction settings there.

Oh wow, you saved my day. Many many thanks!

You’re welcome. Glad it worked :smiley:

Glad you got your answer @mgkoeln. I’ll close this topic so new responses aren’t added, but let me know if you have any further problems with this and we can reopen.
