Android - How to turn off auto correct feature

The autocorrect feature of Android can be quite annoying, especially when typing messages (SMS, Viber, WhatsApp..) in a language different from your phone's default.
So here's how to disable it:
  • Go to Settings > Input & Language.
  • Untick the Spelling correction option:

NB: Depending on the version of Android used, this option may not be available. The solution is to disable Auto-correct directly from your current keyboard settings:
  • Tap on your default keyboard (e.g Android keyboard)
  • Scroll to TEXT CORRECTION > Auto-correction.
  • You can either disable auto-correction or adjust the level:
    • Off
    • Modest
    • Aggresive
    • Very Aggressive
