Do you want companies to read what you type on your mobile? Fleksy lets you write privately, without any organisation using your data. AMA!

Aug 15, 2018

We are Fleksy, the only private mobile keyboard in the world. 

Even when you use an encrypted messaging app, like Whatsapp, your keystrokes can be read and used by keyboard companies before it gets to the chatting app. :O

But what you write on Fleksy, stays in your device. Always.

We're launching a crowdfunding campaign and you can join here:

You can customise your keyboard with your photos and favourite colors, use emojis, gifs and memes.
