MetaMask wallets on Apple devices face the hacking threat

Automatic data backups can cause a loss of funds for cryptocurrency users.

As developers reported on Twitter, automatic data backups on Apple devices may increase the risk of hacking. MetaMask recommended that users disable such data backups.

If attackers gain illegal access to sensitive data uploaded to iCloud, they can steal the cryptocurrency of a MetaMask user. The warning was posted on Twitter a few days after one of MetaMask's users lost NFT and cryptocurrency worth $655,000 after hacking iCloud.

Apple mobile devices can automatically download app data. As a result of the backup, files containing private keys can be uploaded to the company's cloud services. Intruders can access such data, for example, as a result of a phishing attack.
