    I downloaded the EURO 2020 app this morning in anticipation of the tournament starting today and there’s some interesting behaviour it exhibits. I’ve got no background in analysis of apps or mobile security (I stick to pentesting and networking) but I think I know what it’s doing.

    On iOS the OS will tell you when an all has accessed the clipboard, with a pill shaped button on the top of the screen saying “Euro 2020 pasted from Twitter”. I think the app is checking your clipboard every single time you launch the app from the Home Screen.

    Obviously this is a bit of a privacy problem, but is there a good reason for the app to be doing this? And I am I right in thinking that’s what the app is trying to do? Cheers

    Edit: improved the formatting a little
