A businessman in southern France is suing ride-sharing company Uber for €45 million (AUD$68 million) after a bug in the app meant his wife found out he was having an affair.

French new-site Le Figaro reports that the man once requested an Uber car from his wife’s phone. Despite logging off, the Uber app continued to send notifications to her iPhone, revealing his travel history and arousing her suspicions about him having an affair.

His wife would have been able to see details about his orders, including driver name, license plate, and arrival time.

“My client was the victim of a bug in an application,” his lawyer David-André Darmon told AFP. “The bug has caused him problems in his private life” .

“Uber doesn’t comment publicly on individual cases, and especially on cases that involve a divorcing couple,” a spokesperson told the French site.
