Uber sued for whopping $45 million by businessman after privacy glitch led to the end of his marriage

Uber is being sued for a whopping $45 million by a French businessman after his wife left him when she became suspicious that he was being unfaithful.

An apparent glitch allowed the wife to be notified of the man’s trips through the ride-sharing app, according to Business Insider.

More from the online news outlet:

According to French newspaper Le Figaro, the man claimed the glitch caused the app to send notifications as well as other transportation details to his wife’s handset.

While it remains unclear what caused the malfunction, the man purportedly used his wife’s device to log in to Uber, but the phone kept receiving notifications of his journeys long after he eventually logged out.


A spokesperson for the company told the French paper: “Uber doesn’t publicly comment on individual cases, and especially those which concern things such as a divorce procedure.”

As for social media users, they suggest that perhaps his marriage was damaged more by his infidelity than by Uber.
