Some users of the iPhone smartphones have detected a loophole in the beta version of the iOS 14 operating system related to the Instagram photo and video sharing application.
They said that they noticed that their phone's cameras were "turned on" while they opened the "Instagram" application without their desire, explaining that at the time they did not take pictures or record video clips.
An Instagram spokesman replied in an email to The Verge that this "behavior is wrong and that it is being fixed."
He stressed that the application does not reach the phones camera except when asked to do so by the owner of the phone "iPhone, and does not record any personal content related to it."
This comes after international press reports revealed in early July that the “LinkedIn” and “Reddit” applications launched two updates that fixed a vulnerability that was exposed by the new version in the iOS 14 operating system.
The specialized technical site "Engadget" pointed to the "LinkedIn" and "Reddit" application, fixing a gap in which the applications intrude on the personal data of iPhone users.
The clipboard privacy feature in iOS 14 urges more major developers to reduce the curiosity of their apps.
