It can do offline, but I'm not sure if it opts for online vs offline if it has a connection or what.

But seriously, someone would have to be writing a book to use gigs of data like this.

I still think the value is inaccurate somehow. It just seems outrageous that it could possibly use so much data. I suspect this is a case of invalid data from dirty flashes or restoration of data.

I'd say anyone suffering from this do a full factory reset and see if it starts accumulating data usage again. And a sniff of the data would be good, nobody seems to have done that yet either.

There is an AOSP keyboard avaliable on the F-Droid repository. Looks like stock googleinputmethodlatin and does not leak data.... For those who are genuinely concerned about Google's data collection....

Well, I've got the exact same problem on my Xperia U with CyanogenMod 11, when I get home I'll try flashing the AOSP keyboard instead and see if it has this problem..

EDIT: on February 4th I flashed the AOSP keyboard instead of the Google one and, as you can see, in the last 3 days it didn't use any data, so it's a Google Keyboard problem 👎

Told ya! I had similar problems on my nexus 7 on the latest KOT49H firmware. Simply uninstalled all the Google keyboards (Japanese/Chinese , latin, hindi &c) after installing aosp keyboard. Much safer.....

Nexus 5 owner here, found this thread through Google.

My keyboard used up 5 gigabytes in the 45 minutes that I had the device flashed. What the heck? Titanium couldn't uninstall it (couldn't locate APK) so I had to manually trash the APK using a root file manager. How is this even possible!? I have unlimited data, but imagine what it would be for people with capped plans?

Respect open source development and the benefits that it brings; say no to CyanogenMod.

It's simple; it's NOT using such data. Nobody has proven it is. There is a bug or something here.

Just freeze it and use a different keyboard. Done.

All Google apps are crappy.

In my humble opinion of course.
