Samsung Users Report Their Phones Are Text Messaging Pictures to Random Contacts
03 July 2018, 04:24 | Jodi Jackson
Gizmodo have since reported that the problem stems from Samsung Messages, the default texting app on Galaxy devices, which is erroneously sending pictures stored on the devices to random contacts via SMS, and it still isn't clear why this might be happening.
Reports of the unprecedented fault emerged on Reddit and Samsung help forums this week, with one man claiming his entire photo gallery of at least 50 images had been sent to his girlfriend as he slept.
So far, some of the affected users have pointed fingers to a recent T-Mobile update that including advanced texting features, like read receipts and an indicator that shows when the contact you're messaging is typing. "However, there was record of it on mobile logs", one Redditor posted less than a week ago. Errors included scheduled text messages ending up in the wrong threads.
This bug doesn't seem to be affecting users outside the United States so it's quite likely that it does have something to do with RCS but we won't know that for sure until Samsung gets back to us with more information after looking into the matter. Another reported that their device sent photos to their wife. Unfortunately, these updates may have interacted badly with Samsung's Messagesapp, according to the report.
Samsung is aware of the issue and is working to resolve the problem. "Concerned customers are encouraged to contact us directly".
There are now two fixes if you are anxious about the issue affecting your device. This may be a pain, however, because it means if you do want to send photos or files through the app, you need to restore permission in settings again.
