TikTok Still Spying On iPhone Users By Secretly Reading Content Saved To Clipboard | REVEALED

Published

Chinese social media app, TikTok, is still able to access notes on iPhone users’ clipboard, Apple’s beta iOS 14 release has revealed, showing that the app has not kept to its promise early this year to stop accessing sensitive information on customers phones.

TikTok came under fire earlier this year for accessing devices’ clipboards, and in a statement promised to end it’s snopping actions, but users testing the new operating system of iPhone have found TikTok has not kept its promise.

When the TikTok app accesses the clipboard on a device with iOS 14, a notification appears at the top showing that TikTok was looking at the clipboard every free stroke even when it was running in the background, the Telegraph reported.

Revealed: TikTok still spying on iPhone users by secretly reading content saved to clipboard

A video shared on Twitter shows a user typing a comment in the app and every few seconds a banner alert appears, letting him know that TikTok has accessed his clipboard.

However, this app is not the only one sneaking in the shadows.

The Telegraph notes the banner appears on devices running on iOS 14 when using other apps including AccuWeather, AliExpress, Call of Duty Mobile, Google News, Overstock, and Patreon.

A TikTok spokesperson in response to the new allegations says the company has taken note of ‘the action’ and that it has submitted an update to the App Store to have the feature removed.

TikTok last year was fined $5.7 million by US authorities to settle charges that it illegally collected personal information from children.

The Federal Trade Commission said in February 2019 the penalty meted towards the social network, which had been known as Musical.ly, was the largest ever in a children’s privacy investigation.

The app, which has been surging in popularity with young smartphone users, failed to obtain parental consent from its underage users as required by the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), FTC officials said.

FTC Chairman Joe Simons said: ‘The operators of Musical.ly – now known as TikTok – knew many children were using the app, but they still failed to seek parental consent before collecting names, email addresses, and other personal information from users under the age of 13.’

‘This record penalty should be a reminder to all online services and websites that target children: We take enforcement of COPPA very seriously, and we will not tolerate companies that flagrantly ignore the law.’

Dating and relationships take a toll on young people these days and many people are of the view that dating is a waste of time. We are looking at some nice ways you can call it off with your partner without any bad blood between the two of you.

Stop communicating with your partner: to break loose of a toxic relationship, you need to deliberately create an avenue where you reduce the number of times you communicate with your partner. Relationships thrive on communication so the absence of communication means it won’t work.

2. Stop being there at all times: If you are always there for your partner to lay their heads on your shoulders, they assume you are always around for their hard times. Distancing yourself will make your partner to read the signs and back- off from the relationship.

3. Be stingy: if you stop doing the things you used to do for your partner like providing financial assistance for your partner, they will start getting angry at you at every least mistake and can lead to the breakup of the relationship. If your partner depends on you for everything and you stop helping out, they will leave the relationship.

4. Start spending less time and be superstitious: it puts a lot of partners off when excuses are always made to spend some time together. If you start becoming suspicious and superstitious, nobody wants to be in a relationship with a superstitious person so they will gentle exit the relationship.

Sex Survey Reveals The Best Pen*s Size To Make A Woman Orgasm

Published

on

A recent survey carried out by Big One Dating showed that women can be more likely to orgasm depending on the size of their male partner’s sexual organ.

The company asked 4,761 ladies about the last time they had sex, before noting down how well-endowed their lover is. They then asked if participants climaxed or not, before collating the data to find out which sizes were most likely to induce an orgasm.

The poll found that eight inch penises were the most pleasurable, sparking orgasms in 44% of cases.

Seven and nine inch penises were also deemed to be more “successful” as they triggered climaxes in 38% and 32% of cases respectively.

More than a third of women reported pleasurable romps with manhood’s sized between four inches and six inches. This is the same success rate as men with 11 inch penises, which shows bigger isn’t always better.

The least sexually satisfying penis length was one inch.

Sex survey reveals best pen*s size to make a woman orgasm

Last year, the NHS released information about the average male penis size in the UK.

Researchers at University College London measured the penises of 104 men, according to Daily Star.

They included males of all ages, from teenagers to pensioners.

The average penis length in this group was 5.1in (13cm) when “soft and gently stretched”, the research said. They also noted that some penises are “growers” while others were more immediate “showers”.

The NHS website adds: “Regardless of actual size, many men are still unhappy with the size of their manhood.

“A study based on the results of an internet-based survey of more than 50,000 men and women revealed that 45% of men would like a larger penis. The report by Professor Kevan Wylie, a consultant in sexual medicine at the University of Sheffield, concluded that excessive concerns about penis size were higher among men with average-sized penises than men with small ones.

“Professor Wylie’s report also found differences between what women and men think. A much higher percentage of women (85%) were satisfied with their partner’s penis size than the percentage of men (55%) who were satisfied with their own penis size.”
