Samsung phones are sending photos to random contacts without permission

03 July 2018, 01:43 | Megan Pierce

"We are aware of the reports regarding this matter and our technical teams are looking into it", a Samsung spokesman told us.

In another potentially embarrassing case, a Samsung Note 8 user reported that his scheduled text messages had been sent to the wrong recipients.

The messages in question are being sent through the default Samsung Messages app, with reports stating that the app doesn't show users the files were sent.

"Last night around 2:30 a.m., my phone sent her my entire photo gallery over text but there was no record of it on my messages app". Both they and other Reddit users who reported the same problem found no record of the messages having been sent, either.

Drunk dialing and butt-dialing are bad enough, but what if your phone sent some. compromising photos to your contacts all by itself? So for Samsung Galaxy users, this means that the best way to now get around the bug is to avoid Samsung Messages entirely or revoke its permission to access your photo gallery. "Concerned customers are encouraged to contact us directly at 1-800-SAMSUNG".

A spokeswoman for Samsung Australia confirmed the company was investigating the problem but had yet to verify if it was a bug and whether Australians could be affected. The update was meant to improve its capabilities by switching from the existing SMS protocol to the more capable RCS (Rich Communication Services). TechCrunch has also reached out to T-Mobile for comment. T-Mobile, on the other hand, insisted it was not an issue from their end. El Reg asked the chaebol for any explanation, and will let you know if we hear more. Go to the settings menu that handles apps' permissions and deny Samsung Messages' access to your storage.
