I never use auto correction. First thing I turn off on a phone or computer. If I'm writing a long text that I want to be free of errors, I run it through auto correct after the fact, but while composing a text I think that it is just distracting me. And especially while using my native language with close friends I use so many words and expressions that are non-standard that an auto correction mostly just introduces more errors. Also I like to think that this behavior of not using it makes me less reliant on it and that I'm still able to write texts without any glaring errors when I can't use an auto correction tool.
