How-to: Fix Google Keep Crashing on iOS

There is a bug in Google Keep for iOS that can cause it to constantly crash. The problem has to do with certain notes within Keep. To fix it do the following:

  • Delete Google Keep from your iOS device
  • Go to Google Keep in your browser on you laptop
  • Click the Main Menu by clicking the 3 horizontal lines at the top right (aka the Hamburger Menu)
  • Scroll down and click Settings
  • UNCHECK “Display rich link previews”

Now go to the app store on your device and download Google Keep again and give it a try

This fixed it for me. You may not have to delete Keep from your device but I think it makes all this work cleaner because it will re-download all your notes when you reinstall and log in.

  1. Hi thank you very much for the fix. It worked the first time very well but started acting up again. The “ display rich link preview” is off. Any other fixes. I am using a iPhone X

  2. This little gem of a post is the greatest blessing on my life this week and I am circulating it everywhere I can, including forwarding it to the google keep developers. Thank you.
