Security researchers have found that the TikTok iPhone app is spying on its users by secretly reading the clipboard. The vulnerability, resulting from the fact that iOS and iPadOS apps have unrestricted access to the system-wide general pasteboard, means that a user's precise location may be made available to an app if they simply copy and paste a photo.
Earlier this year, the same researchers found that TikTok was found to be copying clipboard data on Android devices, which the developers Bytedance blamed on the use of an outdated Google advertising SDK and promised to change. The fact that the popular Chinese social media app is doing the same on Apple devices casts doubt on that claim.
