I don't know the reason why it needs access to your personal information and network, however I can assure you that unless you use the keyboard, this app will not be accessing either of them. Also this is available on pretty much all Android devices or downloadable from the Play store under the publisher "Google Inc.".
Okay, that's a bit of a relief to know. Thanks. (I'm still keeping it disabled, however - because it was running at the time I stopped and disabled it, despite never accessing the IME)
