How to remove learned words from any keyboard on Android

One of the benefits of writing on mobile devices over the desktop is the use of personalized data on mobile devices. Mobile devices over time learn new words and adapt to your writing style. This also helps in improving the prediction results. However, this blessing can often turn into a curse.

Since mobile keyboards learn new words every day, they end up learning our misspelled words as well. This can be quite annoying as you would get your misspelled words in your prediction bar. And with time, the word prediction system itself becomes inefficient.

If you are struggling with bad predictions and want to omit those misspelled words or even start afresh with no learned word predictions, we have a couple of tips that might suit you.
