The newspaper carried out its own experiment by logging in and out of Uber on one iPhone and then logging in on another and ordering a driver. The app then sent screen notifications about the order to both phones.

The glitch affected iPhones before a software update in December, the newspaper said. Android phones did not appear to be affected.

If the cheating husband wins the case might Uber sue Apple?

Cheating Frenchman sues Uber for unmasking affair

An adulterous businessman in southern France is seeking damages of up to €45m (£38m) from Uber over his wife’s discovery of his extra-marital affair, according to reports.

The man, from the glitzy Riviera area on the southern coastline, says he once connected to his account on the ride-hailing application via his wife’s phone to request a driver.

Despite using the log-off function, the application continued to send her updates afterwards, revealing his travel history and arousing suspicions about his lover, Le Figaro newspaper said. The couple have since divorced.

“My client was the victim of a bug in an application,” his lawyer David-André Darmon told AFP after the case was lodged at a court in Grasse in south-east France.
