People copy all sorts of information to their clipboard. It’s something that we’ve been doing for decades, and it’s a practice that’s deeply ingrained. While most of that information is likely to be mundane and boring, there are times when we copy important information, such as passwords, telephone numbers, or financial details. When it comes to iOS and iPadOS, Apple has given apps unrestricted access to the system clipboard — called Pasteboard on the iPhone and iPad. And, according to research carried out by Talal Haj Bakry and Tommy Mysk, dozens of popular apps are quietly reading the contents of the pasteboard every time they are opened.
