Here are the steps on how to turn off autocorrect for Android:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down and tap System.
  3. Tap Language & input.
  4. Tap Virtual keyboard.
  5. Select your keyboard. (If you’re not sure which keyboard you’re using, tap Manage keyboards and look for the keyboard that’s currently active.)
  6. Tap Text correction.
  7. Toggle off Auto-correction.

Here are some additional tips for turning off autocorrect on Android:

  • If you only want to turn off autocorrect for certain words, you can add those words to your Personal dictionary. To do this, tap Text correction > Personal dictionary > Add word.
  • You can also turn off Predictive text, which is a feature that suggests words as you type. To do this, tap Text correction > Predictive text and toggle off the Predictive text option.
  • If you want to change other autocorrect settings, such as the way it handles capitalization and punctuation, you can do so by tapping Text correction > Settings.

Please note that the exact names and locations of these settings might vary depending on your Android device and the version of Android it’s running. However, most Android devices should have similar options to disable autocorrect.

Keep in mind that newer updates or custom Android interfaces might have slight changes to the settings, so if you can’t find the exact options mentioned above, look for similar options related to keyboard settings in your device’s Settings app.
