Frenchman sues Uber for unmasking his side-chick

The unnamed French man, from the Côte d'Azur region, claimed that after logging into the device from his wife's phone, she was later able to see all future journeys despite logging out.

Now the French businessman is suing the company for €45m (£38m) accusing them of ruining his marriage. Despite the fact that he logged out of the app on her phone, his wife kept receiving notification about his Uber rides, leading to his wife suspecting of him having an extra-marital affairs and ultimately resulted in his divorces.

According to French newspaper Le Figaro, the first hearing for the case is scheduled in March.

Summary: A man says that an Uber glitch allowed his wife to monitor his travels and deduct that he was sneaking around. "Uber doesn't comment publicly on individual cases, and especially on cases that involve a divorcing couple", a spokesperson told the French new site.

IBTimes also asked Uber's U.S. counterpart to comment, but the company respectfully declined.

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

Journalists at the newspaper managed to replicate the bug using two iPhones. Those who updated to iOS 10.2.1 are no longer said to experience the problem. 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.
