    Hello all,

    I don't know if this is a bug or by design, but when I enter password fields in apps, it switches away from 3rd party keyboards to the standard iOS keyboard. Is this by design or a bug?

    I would hope the keyboards aren't logging keystrokes and sending them anyway, so why would they do this on purpose?

    It's by design to make it even more secure for sure.

    I had a feeling that might be the case. Thanks for the confirmation!
