Apple keeping our data safe :bow:

 

Andork users having info stolen left and right, https://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/2020/06/25/tiktok-stop-snooping-users-clipboards-iphone-update-shows-app/

 

Apple late to the party again.  I love how ghostz assumes because this affects Apple that it also still affects Android too. 

 

"Google already updated this SDK and since July 2019 all new releases of this SDK have stopped reading the clipboard on launch." 

 

Google addressed this last summer.... Apple is literally a year late. :mroff:

 

 

i-tards had they info stolen left and right in a ton of apps.

That would be a game changer.... if more than 10% of Android users had access to android 10 :kaz:

Ghostz is clueless yet again.   On Android you don't have to wait for an OS update to get a security update. 

 

on Android you get security updates MONTHLY  independently of OS updates. 

 

Epic thread backfire :drake:

HOLY SHIT :mroff:

 

 

Sooo... that takes us back to our standard Android 10 feature.. with 8% of andorks being eligible for, LOL

 

Limited access to clipboard data

Unless your app is the default input method editor (IME) or is the app that currently has focus, your app cannot access clipboard data on Android 10 or higher.

 

which means it still DOES as long as you’re using the app :kaz:

IT GETS WORSE HOLY SHIT

 

The clipboard reading Haj Bakry and Mysk reported raises concerns that likely extend to those using Android and possibly other operating systems. Mysk said that clipboard reading in Android apps is “even worse” than iOS because the OS APIs are so much more lenient. Until version 10, for instance, Android allowed apps running in the background to read the clipboard. iOS apps, by contrast, can read or query clipboards only when active (that is, running in the foreground).

Surprise surprise... Gouk busted again. 
 

So, in short - 8.2% of Android users are eligible to have privacy settings iOS has had in place since the beginning of time. 90% of Android users have clipboard data stolen from all apps running in the background at all times. 
 

100% of iOS users currently have clipboard data used from active apps (as does Android, along with background apps or apps not even running), but Apple just implemented a notification system for when apps access the clipboard (and microphone, and camera) to promote visibility.  
 

Google has no such answer. 
 

Again - Apple innovating and changing the industry to bring transparency to the consumer.

Weren't you already told that's old news? :shrug: 

What is old about it? Right now 92% of Android users experience this. (Non active apps reading the clipboard)
 

they did update it with Android 10 (running on 8% of devices) to match iOS (which has been this way for years) though iOS 14 takes it way farther.
