If you do not want this data to be collected, you can go to the fydeRyhthm IME settings page and turn off the “Help us improve the fydeRyhthm IME user experience” option.

Version information of the input method program
Input schemes used and their frequency
Error reports and program crash information

If you use a FydeOS account to sign in to a FydeOS device and use fydeRyhthm IME, we will subsequently provide a service to synchronise your personal dictionary and input preference settings through your FydeOS account.

Selected input schemes, the number of candidate words per page, phonetic options, and other settings
Input phrases and word frequency data (but not coherent input content)
