Apple caught TikTok secretly spying iPhone users

14

TikTok was seen trending over social media platforms in the UAE, this weekend, following a report that Apple had caught the video-sharing app, secretly spying on millions of iPhone users.

Apparently, a new feature in iOS 14 alerts Apple users when apps read the clipboard, and it looks like TikTok has been overly reading and accessing clipboard data.

TikTok users who upgraded to iOS 14, noticed alerts warning them that the app was accessing their clipboard “every 1-3 keystrokes”.
