    I have seen some answers to the above question, but I do not have some of the things mentioned in the settings. I have Samsung s6 edge with marshmallow
    please can you go through step by step please, this just happened suddenly I do not know why. Under settings there is nothing about show device, or about clearing data.

    So the steps that were given I cannot follow.

    I hope someone can help.

    Thanks Anna

    Hi

    I had this same problem just as you have described, tried the online fixes and nothing worked.

    I went into Settings, Apps, Reset App Preferences and this seems to have fixed the problem.

    Is a pain having to put your apps back to how you had them but it does seem to have stopped getting the error message.

    Hope that helps.

    I had this issue last night and I tried everything I read on the forums. I didn't want to reset the phone (Samsung Note 5). I noticed that when you hit the power button to power off, I was given 3 options. shut down, restart, and emergency mode. I decided to look at emergency mode, and a different keyboard popped up. I was able to use it to log in and then I could reboot my phone. When the phone came back up, the keyboard worked.

    I have this issue too, it started yesterday (8 August 2017) then stopped, but today just won't go away. I've tried all the above, have loaded both Swiftkey and Smart Keyboard Pro but just keep getting the message 'Samsung Keyboard has stopped'.... I have never actually even used the Samsung keyboard apart from way back at the beginning as I particularly like Keyboard Pro but have now loaded Swiftkey as advised on here, but it's making no difference. Can't do a thing to stop this - help please, it's driving me mad, any suggestions what we can all do greatly appreciated....

    I was using Google Indic keyboard and after update of my Samsung Note 5 (version 7.0 kernel july 17 release) on 13th Aug , the phone in morning started giving me this error. I had google Indic keyboard as default keyboard.

    Samsung Keyboard keeps stopping.

    I could not use keyboard in any application.

    I uninstalled the google indic keyboard, and i now started getting samsung keyboard in every app. So phone is usable again.

    thanks.

    I only starting getting the keyboard error after I did the bug fix upgrade this weekend. I've read that other people are having the same issue since the bug fix upgrade. My husband and I both ran the upgrade, and we both have the Galaxy S6, but I'm the only one with the problem. I've tried different things suggested here and on other sites to clear the issue, but they only work for a short while and then I have to remedy it again. Does anyone else have this same issue since the recent upgrade?

    THANK YOU, Jfromine! I also have a Note 5 and was locked out of it after a reboot because the keyboard would not display. But by going into emergency mode i was able to log in, then after turning off emergency mode the keyboard works normally elsewhere, without a reboot.

    I've had this happen a couple of times now (weeks apart) for no apparent reason - on my Galaxy s6. Holding the power button and then choosing "Emergency Mode" was the fix for me. Didn't need to do anything other than go to "Emergency Mode", and then simply come out of it. When the phone comes back up, it defaults to a very basic keyboard, but you can then choose whatever keyboard you like (gBoard in my case). I don't know why this happens, I don't even use the Samsung Keyboard, only gBoard, but hey. At least it can be quickly fixed with Emergency Mode.

    For me this started with the previous update, not the one that came through in the last day or so - S6 UK on Nougat.

    I'm also having the issue with the error message Samsung keyboard keeps stopping, ever since the latest update, but it only happens when I try to use emojis in a text. I am able to resolve the problem by going into Language and Input and changing my keyboard back to swype, but I'm not able to use emojis. Anyone else experiencing this and have a solution??
