Not Good: Samsung Phones Texting Photos to Random People

Sending pictures to others is one of the most basic functions of a smartphone, but when your phone's texting app starts randomly pushing out photos without your knowledge, you got a problem. "M$3 y phone sent her my entire photo gallery over text but there was no record of it on my messages app". In the meantime, you can switch to a third-party messaging app like WhatsApp, Signal, or Facebook Messenger to send all the photos you want to the right people.

Samsung's smartphones may not be randomly bursting into flames now, but a unusual and creepy new problem has appeared: some users are having photos randomly and quietly sent to other people.

Samsung tells Gizmodo they are aware of the reports and are looking into them, but has yet to come out with an official statement warning users of the bug. According to the The Verge, Samsung is asking users to call the company's helpline if they are facing the problem. There was a record of the message in that person's phone carrier logs, but not within the app.

Per the report, the bug has been experienced by a number of users, including owners of late model devices such as the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S9.

Some users have recommended changing the phones' default SMS service to avoid being caught out by the bug, using Android Messages instead, and revoking Samsung Messages' permission to access media.

T-Mobile, one of the carriers that have implemented RCS, says "It's not a T-Mobile issue", and is referring users back to Samsung.

Once you've done this, you'll no longer be able to open your conversations or compose new messages in the Samsung Messages app, as long as you continue to deny storage permissions. "Concerned customers are encouraged to contact us directly".
