Microsoft Corp.’s [NASDAQ: MSFT] LinkedIn was sued by New-York based iPhone users for secretly reading and removing users’ sensitive content from Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) Universal Clipboard application.

The lawsuit was filed in Sans Fransico federal court by Adam Bauer. He said that he daily used the LinkedIn app on his iPhone and iPad. The lawsuit stated that social networking service, LinkedIn Corp. secretly reading clipboard information without notifying users.

Apple Inc.’s universal clipboard allows users to copy, text, videos, images from one Apple device and paste it to another Apple device. Universal Clipboard is a brilliant tool for uploading content on the clipboard or stored on the users’ devices to users’ other iCloud connected devices.

We don’t store or transmit the clipboard contents.”
