    I don't know what to do at this point. I've toggled off block offensive words in every setting I can find. I cleared the cashe and storage on the Google app and Gboard app... Still turns f*** into that. Seems people I've been having issues with this for quite some time but it just started for me. Any suggestions?

    I moved this from the Android Apps forum to the General Help forum, since the former is intended for developers to promote their apps.

    Is this only on a particular website or in a particular app? Or does it happen even with private documents, like in Google Docs?

    Thanks for having this to the right place.

    Anytime I use Gboard voice to text. Squeezing the phone (pixel 3) and saying a curse word works fine. Using voice to text on the Google keyboard results in s***.

    I've cleared cache and data from the Google app and Gboard.. no dice. I've searched all over the place and have tried to find all the hidden places where the toggle for offensive words can be found. I'm out of ideas.

    Just to be sure -- you've gone to Settings>Language & Input>Virtual Keyboard>Google Voice Typing and turned off the Block Offensive Words toggle there, right?

    Yup. And under the Gboard settings too.

    Which phone do you have? Does it also happen in Safe Mode?

    Took me far too long but I can swear again! you have to toggle off the one mentioned in the above article as WELL as the one everyone knows about.

    So one must toggle off "block offensive words" under "text correction" (see link above for how to find "text correction" AND

    One must toggle off "Hide offensive words" under - system > languages & input >Virtual keyboard > google voice typing

    If you have done both that and added the words you like to the personal dictionary... well then you might be F*****
