    I downloaded the app Kiwi, a third party keyboard and I'm extremely worried that it is gonna be able to use my personal stuff. Is it safe or okay?

    It will access your personal stuff because necessarily you need to be able to access data if you're going to use it. So it will use those core apps because, as you type, it is a requirement otherwise it won't work.

    That's different from "use." It won't use your photos, for example, to forward somewhere. Or it won't use your contact list to forward it somewhere.

    This is, of course, assuming it is a reputable app from the App Store. Did you read information on the app before downloading?

    If they want to succeed and make $ with their app, they will behave. I don't see any issues with Kiwi. I have had fun with that one. Here's my iMore keyboard.

    The problem I have with Kiwi, is when I make a period, question mark and etc, I can't get back to the QWERTY board.
