Remove player activity notice for development card usage
Users can see when another player is "using monopoly card" or "selecting 2 resources" BEFORE the card is actually used (there is some text to the left of the timer citing this activity). If they opt to no longer use the card, or the timer runs out on their turn, then the other users now know what development card that player has in their hand.

Underneath the dice you can see when a player is in the process of playing a monopoly, so if they cancel that move then everyone (who was paying attention) knows they have a monop. That seems to be a bit of a flaw (especially for newer players who might not realize this "feature")

I was going to play a monopoly card and everyone saw it in the player action box on the bottom before I withdrew the card.

We saw the message "<User> is using monopoly" before they confirmed that they were going to use it, and that skewed trade negotiations.

Fixed, will be released in Version 91
If you mislick on your monopoly, year of plenty, or road building dev card, other players will see text that you are Selecting Cards or Building Roads.
IMO this shouldn't be displayed because you may still want to cancel out of that action, but it exposes your card. There is little upside to showing this message to opponents.
