Reddit released an app announcement today saying it has adjusted the code and will not copy content from the user’s clipboard. In the beta update for iOS 14, when an application tries to copy clipboard information, an alarm is raised at the top.
In an email to The Verge, Reddit said: “We’ve identified the relevant code path in the post, primarily to check the URL address in the clipboard and then recommend the content based on the text of the URL.” We promise not to store or send clipboard content. We have now removed this code and will release a fix on July 14. “
Earlier, user Donald Morton posted a video on his personal Twitter account showing Reddit capturing the clipboard content of each keyboard input.
