Samsung phones may be sending pictures to random people

Lori Graves | 04 July, 2018, 00:33

"My phone's battery was super low overnight so maximum power saving had kicked in from a routine I set with Good Lock, and two or three people had been sent photos (just one each, and they were photos I had sent them in the past)".

If you use a Samsung Galaxy smartphone, you may want to pay a visit to your phone's settings (Settings- Apps- Samsung Messages- Permissions- Storage) and deny Samsung Messages the ability to access your phone's storage.

A Reddit user reported their Samsung phone sent their entire photo gallery to their girlfriend. "However, there was record of it [in my] T-Mobile logs".

Affected users are encouraged to contact Samsung directly until a fix is issued. Users only find out the photos have been sent when they're asked about it. Samsung has said it's now looking into the problem. This has created an incompatibility with the Samsung Messages app which is creating this issue.

His phone showed no record of the photo gallery being transferred to his partner's number, though his provider recorded the action.

Jordan, Mavs agree to one-year deal
Three years after they almost came together, the Mavericks finally get the center they have long coveted. Jordan is still an elite rebounder in the league, and a change of scenery could do him so good.

According to posts on Reddit and Samsung's official support boards first spotted by Gizmodo, the devices affected include the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy Note 8. He also said the app was displaying some messages as sent, when the other party had not got them.

'Give me a spontaneously exploding phone any day of the week, Samsung, instead of this nightmare scenario, ' he said.

There's a theory on Samsung's forums that this bug has something to do with the recent Rich Communication Services updates that carriers have been rolling out in the United States.

It is believed the bug could be due to a new messaging standard called RCS, which is created to make texting look more like a messaging app, complete with read receipts and typing indicators. T-Mobile, on the other hand, insisted it was not an issue from their end.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Samsung for further comment.
