Dear Samsung mobe owners: It may leak your private pics to randoms

Samsung's logo is seen on a building during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Spain on Feb. 25 2018

A glitch in the latest version of the Samsung Messages texting app that comes pre-installed on all Samsung phones is sending random pictures to users' contacts.

His phone showed no record of the photo gallery being transferred to his partner's number, though his provider recorded the action. Until then, there are two easy fixes for the concerned users: 1. This means that some people who have been impacted by this bug won't really know what has happened until they're informed by the recipient.

"This can be done by going to Settings - Apps - Samsung Messages - Permissions - Storage".

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.

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. Many users turned to Reddit to voice their complaints.

'Um, this is disturbing, ' one person said. One said: "Um, this is disturbing".

'Do S9s come with divorce lawyers?' another quipped.

Another Redditor said: "Give me a spontaneously exploding phone any day of the week, Samsung, instead of this nightmare scenario".

Numerous incidents seem to be affecting phones with T-Mobile, a carrier that recently rolled out updates with their RCS "advanced messaging" service.

Samsung has acknowledged the issue in a statement released to U.S. outlets such as The Washington Post: "We are aware of the reports regarding this matter and our technical teams are looking into it". It may be related to a recent T-Mobile profile update to the new RCS text-messaging format. As for T-Mobile carriers, don't bother reaching out to T-Mobile, 'cause they say "it's not a T-Mobile issue".
