Businessman sues Uber after app glitch revealed he was cheating on wife

Suicide bomber kills six in Afghanistan's Helmand

According to the Guardian, the trouble started when the claimant's wife began receiving updates as to her husband's riding habits from the Uber app, which he'd once logged into using his wife's phone in order to call a auto.

An apparent glitch allowed the wife to be notified of the man's trips through the ride-sharing app, according to Business Insider. Though the French Riviera resident logged off, his wife reportedly continued seeing alerts from the app, including her husband's less than spotless travel history. The couple has since divorced.

"My client was the victim of a bug in an application", his lawyer said.

Numerous Uber users have complained about the existence of a bug over Twitter.

French news site Le Figaro carried out an experiment by logging in and out of Uber app on one iPhone and ordering a Uber service from another iPhone using the same account. His Tweet explained that he accessed Uber through a friend's phone then logged out, but the app still delivers notifications of his activities to his friend.

However, android users can breathe a sigh of relief as the glitch is limited to iOS versions of the app updated after December 16 previous year. The problem does not appear to manifest itself on Android handsets.

Uber said it would not comment on the case but added that the best possible protection of clients' personal details was a priority.
