    I've been getting this glitch on mobile where when typing it starts to insert random letters or even just the wrong ones. Even hitting backspace it just inserts whatever it wants.

    I'll type something unedited as an example of what it does:
    Hello, thettypujngtonthis websitewis fucked u0 beyobgbrepair please fixfit.

    Anyone else experiencing this problem?

    What browser and what keyboard are you using? It works fine for me in both Chrome and Via Browser, with SwiftKey Beta as a keyboard.

    It's the same for me in every mobile app and every website with SwiftKey, not having any issues with gboard

    Im using Swiftkey and Chrome. This is only happening on this site, at least for me. Ive been using Swiftkey and Chrome forever, this started happening like 2 weeks ago.

    Might be software-related to your specific phone, or it's the new ads. They cause big issues for me on mobile.

    See:
    http://gbatemp.net/threads/swiftkey-predictions-broken.492196/ (Sorry the screenshot is broken, but it's the same problem you have.)

    It's a problem with the WYSIWYG editor used by the site, and how Chrome perceives the Javascript used by it. I'm glad more people are reporting this. I've seen others claim it happens on other sites, and even other apps, but this site is the only one that has the problem for me.
