Clipboard Copiers

In Apple’s IOS14 users are notified when an application accesses the clipboard. That is when everyone realized that these companies have the ability to read whatever information you have stored like; passwords two-factor auth codes, photos and more.

This is not only Apple apps but Android too. Are these companies using your data for nefarious reasons? Most likely not, but if you are concerned clearing the clipboard or simple copying mundane data afterwards will stop any would be thieves. When tested, it turned out that Tik Tok was reading the clipboard every one to three keystrokes. Many companies have been called out and many have already turned off this feature and/or are working on resolutions. Below I’ll list a few companies if your interested and the video below does a good job explaining the issue.
