while i dont know if they do or dont, a. the stock keyboard could be doing it, and the system itself could be too, you have no way of knowing.
b. if its extremely important to you, root yur phone, download and install the xposed framework, and the module xprivacy, and use it rto block the permissions of your KIQ.

Most things are harmless, infact %99.8 of apps are okay. The main ones you want to watch out for are apks that aren't from Google Play as they could have loggers bundled with them but most if not all apps from the Play store are okay, their main issue is bring tons of malware ads
