    On Macbreak Weekly, a couple weeks ago, Rene mentioned that you can actually use 3rd party keyboards on the lockscreen to respond to texts and whatnot. He mentioned something about having to log in or something like that. I have searched all over and can find no mention of how to do this? I would really like to disable the main keyboard, however then I have no keyboard on the lockscreen...

    Help! Thank you for any replies.

    Not sure which article you mean. Have you looked in the App Store at the descriptions of the keyboards there?
    ️I haven't used any third party apps yet because I love swiftkey.

    I've never had a problem with keyboards appearing on the lock screen, but I know others have. Try using a simple passcode maybe. If that doesn't work, try changing the "Require Passcode" from immediately to some other value. Those are how my settings are set and it seems to work fine with Swype.

    Do you not have it set to lock immediately? To the first answer... SwiftKey IS a 3rd party keyboard, and Macbreak weekly is a podcast that Leo Laporte does and rente is on it every week.

    Sorry, meant Rene, not rente... Also, I checked and for some reason I only have the option to require the passcode immediately...

    After doing some more research, apparently if you use touch I'd, the only option is to lock immediately.
