Granting Full Access to Bible Verses and Quotes does not mean everything you type is transferred, despite a warning message that shows when you allow the permission.
No language data or words you type will ever be transferred while using your Bible Verses and Quotes Keyboard unless you specifically create a Bible Verses and Quotes Account.
On iOS, Bible Verses and Quotes’s keyboard extension requires Full Access in order to share data with the “container” app on your device, i.e. the Bible Verses and Quotes app on your home screen. This is because we house key components of Bible Verses and Quotes in the container app, and need to obtain your permission for the keyboard extension to access these components.
Granting an iOS keyboard extension Full Access is the permission that allows it to share data with its broader “container” app and gain network access. We request this permission in order to provide you with a full Bible Verses and Quotes feature-set and simplify how settings are managed.
Your Bible Verses and Quotes Keyboard does not “transmit anything you type,” as Apple’s warning message may lead you to think. That warning message (which is displayed before a user allows Full Access) is there to make sure you are aware of what is technically possible before making a decision about whether to trust the developer of a keyboard extension. We hope this article gives you the confidence that Bible Verses and Quotes has taken measures to protect both your privacy and security.
We require Full Access because your Bible Verses and Quotes Keyboard stores language models, personalized learning and keyboard preferences outside the keyboard extensions framework on your device. Without this permission, the keyboard extension would not be able to read or write to these files.
Architecting Bible Verses and Quotes for iOS in this way allows us to make sure the keyboard is both as user friendly and powerful as possible. It allows you to manage your settings in a clear and simple way from the app on your home screen, have further customization of the keyboard with themes, and ensure all of this is presented within a reasonably-sized app.
