No matter what device you use to write, Grammarly can keep your writing sharp. However, the built-in automatic correction feature can sometimes edit your writing incorrectly. This is how you can disable Grammarly auto-correction in various applications and extensions.
We will discuss disabling automatic correction features found in browser extensions and corporate mobile keyboard applications. At the time of writing, the word processor that is in the Grammarly desktop application does not automatically correct your writing.
Disable Automatic Correction in Grammarly Browser Extensions
The Grammar browser extension works well with most modern browsers, including Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, and Apple Safari. The extension will help you with your writing on almost all websites, including email, social media, etc.
After the Grammarly extension is active and running, the Grammarly icon will appear in the top bar of your browser or wherever the extension is stored. Click the applet icon to open the settings for the Grammarly extension.
To disable automatic correction in that browser, turn off the “Automatically Spell Fix” option found near the bottom of the extension.
Disable Automatic Correction on the Grammarly Smartphone Keyboard
The Grammarly application for iPhone, iPad and Android devices provides similar automatic correction features that can be deactivated in the same way. Open the application on your device and tap the “Grammarly Settings” option.
Then, at the top of the Settings menu, set the “Auto Enhance” switch to off.
