It’s honestly quite phenomenal how a silly little privacy feature has shamed and forced app developers into doing the right thing.

While I would’ve preferred a popup that would’ve allowed me to reject or accept the clipboard snooping, I appreciate what Apple has done here.

Here’s hoping Google implements this in Android.
