Microsoft is already being sued for alleged LinkedIn “spying” on iPhones

IOS 14 hasn’t even been officially launched and is already making a small revolution among developers.

That’s because the update for iPhones brought a new feature that alerts you through a notification when an application is accessing the user’s clipboard. Do you know that text or image you left in “Copy”? Exactly that kind of content.

And why do so many apps want to see what you have on the clipboard? Well, maybe they don’t even know: LinkedIn was one of those caught and in his defense pointed out that this is a bug, and that Microsoft does nothing with this information.

A corrective update for the application is in progress with release for the next few days. Even so, an Apple user is suing the Redmond giant.

The lawsuit was filed in San Francisco, California, and the plaintiff claims that LinkedIn would be secretly obtaining user content from the clipboard function without notifying them, and that the company would even be able to access the clipboard. other Apple devices, thanks to the Universal Clipboard feature.

None of this has been confirmed by the company, which, on the contrary, has already declared that the alert on iPhones is triggered only because of a bug.

In any case, the company’s lawyers will have to make more visits to the court to clarify the situation.

Remember, Apple finally released the first public beta of iOS 14, and with that more people should watch applications accessing the clipboard. More scandal is coming?
