The Microsoft SwiftKey Account is a free service that enhances your Microsoft SwiftKey          Keyboard by leveraging the power of the cloud.

1 - Benefits of the Microsoft SwiftKey Account

Having a Microsoft SwiftKey Account benefits you in the following ways:

Personalization: Get better predictions by letting Microsoft SwiftKey learn from the way you type on a range of social networks. This improves Microsoft SwiftKey Keyboard's accuracy as the app understands the words and phrases that matter to you.

Backup & Sync: Your Microsoft SwiftKey Account safely stores your learned language data and syncs it across your devices. If you lose your phone or get a new one, you won’t need to retrain the keyboard - signing into your Microsoft SwiftKey Account will bring all your personalized insights right back.

Themes: With the Microsoft SwiftKey Account, you have access to free themes to change the appearance of your keyboard. Theme downloads are tied to your Account, meaning they stay secure and you can use them across all of your devices.

SwiftKey Stats: A lowdown on the different subjects you type about the most, the emoji you use most often, and how many words Microsoft SwiftKey learned from you.
