Are you using the default login / register window systems? The keyboard has to do some tricks to make GameMaker believe that a key has been pressed, so it doesn't always work correctly with things that aren't built-in to the extension.

What could be wrong?

Then I'm assuming YoYoGames have, at some point, changed the way key press events work on Android causing the keyboard to stop working. I'll add this to my todo to see if I can fix it somehow, but I'm very busy currently so it might take a while.
