The beta release of Apple’s iOS 14 has pulled the curtain on TikTok, revealing the video-sharing app is still secretly reading users’ clipboard contents.

The firm came under fire for snooping earlier this year and vowed to stop accessing devices’ clipboards, but users testing the new operating system found TikTok has not kept its promise.

When the app accesses the clipboard on a device with iOS 14, a notification appears at the top and a video shared on Twitter shows that TikTok was looking at the clipboard every free stroke – even when it was running in the background.

A TikTok spokesperson told The Verge that it submitted an update to the App Store to have the feature removed.
