French man sues Uber for €45m claiming glitch allowed wife to track his affair

Uber has found itself in the middle of a messy and potentially very expensive divorce.

A French businessman is suing the company for €45m (£38.3m) after a bug in its app allegedly allowed the man’s wife to track his extramarital liaisons.

According to French newspaper Le Figaro, the man claims the app sent notifications detailing his pick up points, destinations and times to his wife’s phone. The man claims he had logged into his Uber account on his wife’s device once but had subsequently logged out so the notifications should have stopped.
