How do I turn off the clicking Sound on my Samsung keyboard?

The clicking or keypress sound when typing on Samsung’s default keyboard can be distracting for some users. This audio feedback on keypresses provides confirmation that your taps registered, but the constant click-clack while typing emails or texts may become annoying over time. Fortunately, Samsung provides settings to control or disable the keyboard audio on their Android devices. This guide will walk through the steps to turn off the keypress sound on your Samsung keyboard.

Locate Sound Settings

The keyboard sound setting on Samsung devices is located in the Sound and Vibration settings. Here is how to find it:

  1. Open your device’s Settings app.
  2. Scroll down and tap on “Sounds and Vibration”.
  3. Under “System Sounds” you will find an option for “Samsung Keyboard sound”, toggle this on or off to adjust the keyboard’s click sound.

By default the Samsung keyboard makes a clicking sound when keys are pressed. If you prefer not to have this sound, simply toggle the “Samsung Keyboard sound” switch off.

For additional sound settings like adjusting notification volume, see the “Adjust Volume Instead” section below.

Turn Off Keypress Sound

To turn off the keypress sound on your Samsung keyboard:

  1. Open the Settings app on your phone.
  2. Tap on “Sounds and vibration.”
  3. Locate the “Keypress sound” option and tap on it.
  4. On the next screen, select “Off” or “Mute” to disable the keypress sound.

As explained on Sammobile, turning off the keypress sound is very simple. Just access the Sounds and Vibration settings, find the keyboard sound option, and toggle it off. This will immediately disable the clicking sound when typing on your Samsung device.

Adjust Volume Instead

Rather than disabling sound completely, users can lower the volume of keypress sounds if they find them too loud or distracting. To adjust keyboard volume:

1. Go to Settings.

2. Select “Sound and Vibration”.

3. Choose “Volume”.

4. Locate “Keyboard” and adjust the volume slider to a softer level [1]. Use the preview tool to test different levels.

This allows you to turn down the keyboard sound rather than disabling it completely. Users who still want audio feedback but find the default volume too loud may prefer this method.

Use a 3rd Party Keyboard

A simple solution to turn off keypress sounds on the Samsung keyboard is to download and install an alternate keyboard app like Gboard or SwiftKey. Many 3rd party keyboards have better settings and controls for things like sounds compared to the pre-installed Samsung keyboard.

Some keyboards like Gboard let you disable key sounds completely, or customize the sound volume to your preference. Simply download the keyboard app you prefer from the Google Play store, enable it as your device’s default keyboard, and access the sound settings from the keyboard’s menu or settings screen.

Using an alternate keyboard app will give you much more control to disable or adjust keyboard sounds, without having to dig deep into the device’s system settings. Popular keyboard apps like Gboard and SwiftKey have millions of downloads, top reviews, and crucially – the option to easily turn off keypress clicks.

Check Notification Sounds

The keypress sounds on your Samsung keyboard may actually be tied to your notification sounds rather than just the keyboard itself. Samsung allows you to customize notification sounds and volumes for different apps (source).

To check if your keyboard clicks are using notification sounds, go to Settings > Sounds and vibration > Volume > Press each app to customize. If no app seems tied to the keyboard sound, it’s likely using the default Notification sound.

Try adjusting the Notification volume slider instead of the overall volume. You can also touch and hold the Notification sound file to change it to None or a silent audio file, which may disable the keyboard clicking.

By customizing notification volumes and sounds for different apps, you may be able to isolate what is causing the keyboard clicking noise.

Toggle Silent/Vibrate Mode

Using silent or vibrate mode is an easy way to mute keypress sounds on your Samsung Galaxy phone without having to dig into the settings menu. Simply toggle on silent or vibrate mode via your phone’s quick settings:

1. Swipe down from the top of your screen to see your notifications and quick settings.

2. Tap the Silent or Vibrate icon to turn the mode on/off. When enabled, your phone will vibrate instead of beeping as you press keys.

You can access these quick settings faster from your home screen by swiping down with two fingers instead of one. Vibrate and silent mode are quick and convenient ways to mute key clicks without having to adjust specific keyboard app settings.

According to Samsung’s support site, enabling Do Not Disturb mode is another option to minimize notification sounds, calls, and alarms.

Update Software

Sometimes updating your Samsung device’s software can change keyboard sound options. Keyboard sound configurations vary across different Android versions on Samsung devices (Androidtoz, 2023). Installing the latest OS updates from Samsung can provide additional keyboard customization features.

To update your software, go to Settings > Software update and tap “Download and install” to get the latest version. Make sure your device has over 50% battery before updating. The update process may take 10-60 minutes depending on your internet connection speed. Once updated, go back to your keyboard sound settings to see if new options are available to disable sounds.

Keeping your Samsung device’s software up-to-date ensures you have access to the latest keyboard sound configurations. If your desired mute options are still unavailable after updating, you may need to try alternative methods like installing a third party keyboard.

Factory Reset

As a last resort, if none of the other troubleshooting steps work to fix sounds issues with the Samsung keyboard, you may need to perform a factory reset of your device to restore it to default settings (source). Before doing this:

  • Backup any important data you want to keep
  • Make sure you know any passwords needed to access the device after resetting

Resetting your device will erase all data and customized settings, including those related to your keyboard. It will restore the Samsung keyboard back to its original default configuration out of the box.

While inconvenient, factory resetting often fixes even stubborn device issues that can’t be resolved any other way. Just make sure your data is backed up so you don’t lose anything important in the process.


To turn off the keyboard clicking sound on your Samsung device, go to Settings > Sound > Touch sounds and toggle the Touch sounds option to off. This will disable the key tap sounds when typing on the Samsung keyboard.

If you don’t want to fully disable the sounds, consider lowering the Notification volume level instead. This will make the key taps quieter without fully muting them.

As an alternative, you can install and use a third party keyboard app. Various keyboard apps let you customize sounds, so you may be able to find one that suits your preferences better.

You can also toggle between Silent and Vibrate mode on your device instead of adjusting volumes and sounds. Just know this will mute all notification sounds, not just the keyboard.

Finally, make sure your Samsung device is updated to the latest software version. Updates sometimes include fixes and changes to system sounds.
