Third-party keyboard extensions in iOS can be designed to run entirely standalone, without access to external services, or they can request “full access” to provide additional features through network access. Apple has discovered a bug in iOS 13 and iPadOS that can result in keyboard extensions being granted full access even if you haven't approved this access.
The release of iOS 13.1.1 and iPadOS 13.1.1 fixes this issue. Learn how to update your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
This issue does not impact Apple’s built-in keyboards. It also doesn't impact third-party keyboards that don't make use of full access.
