1 - What are SwiftKey Stats?

'SwiftKey Stats' bring new ways of looking at how you type in a bunch of fun visualizations. These are in addition to the existing usage stats, like how many typos you’ve corrected, and how efficient you've become.

SwiftKey Stats includes the following:

Topics – 3-5 different subjects you type about the most. We created a bunch of fun, diverse categories to show you some of the topics you love to talk about – from Art & Design to Music and everything in between. 

Top Emoji – the emoji you use most often. This is a cloud-like visualization of the emoji you use the most – the bigger the emoji in the ‘cloud’, the more you use it.

Signature Emoji – the emoji you use more than other people. This emoji is generated by the emoji you overuse compared to the average (this is not the emoji you use most often).


Vocabulary Size – how many words has SwiftKey learned from you? This number starts at zero when you install – find out how much your personal SwiftKey vocabulary has grown! 

How are SwiftKey Stats calculated?

The number of keystrokes will be the amount of times you’ve touched a key on the keyboard.

We calculate the efficiency as follows:

efficiency = (total entered characters – keys pressed) / total entered characters * 100 (%)

For example,  if you enter a total of 100 characters with 60 key strokes, it will report that SwiftKey made my typing 40% more efficient. To improve your efficiency score, always use the predictions to choose words.

2 - How to view your SwiftKey Stats

To get your hands on SwiftKey Stats, you need to create a SwiftKey Account. 

See here for information on creating a SwiftKey Account.

Your SwiftKey Stats can be accessed by opening the SwiftKey app proper. Scroll down past the 'Typing' and 'Account' icons to see them.

3 - How to view your Typing Heatmap

The heatmap provides a visual representation of how accurately you type. Each “blob” on the heatmap represents a key on the keyboard. When you begin using SwiftKey, each blob is a perfect circle, representing average accuracy. As you use SwiftKey these blobs are morphed to fit the region that you tend to press when you want to use that key, thereby representing the unique way in which you use the SwiftKey Keyboard.

This visualization also lets you see your own accuracy and shows the area SwiftKey associates most strongly with each letter. As you type, this is combined with other statistical data to provide the best estimate of what you intended to say. 


Just tap the 'Typing Heatmap' button to view, save a copy and share on social media.

4 - Having problems?

It's important to note that it's not possible to backup or sync SwiftKey Stats between devices. So if you log into your SwiftKey Account on a new device (or after a fresh install) expect to see your list of words corrected, distance flowed etc. amount to zero.

5 - Privacy & Data Security

SwiftKey is centered around the concept that a keyboard that learns from your writing habits & predicts your most-used words is the fastest and easiest way to type on a smartphone. SwiftKey Stats is a fun way to get an insight into what’s going on behind the scenes of your SwiftKey Keyboard, and only you can see your SwiftKey Stats, unless you decide to share them. Your privacy and comfort are extremely important to us, as we expect they are for you.

You can read more how SwiftKey protects your privacy and data in our Privacy Policy and Data Security Policy.
