Is your Samsung phone texting private pics without permission?

IN A DISTURBING development for anyone with photos on their phone and their boss's phone number, the world's largest smartphone maker is investigating claims its handsets have started sending private photos to phone contacts at random.

A Reddit user reported their Samsung phone sent their entire photo gallery to their girlfriend. 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.

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.

For those of you looking for a workaround while the company tries to fix the problem, your options appear to be going into your device's app settings and revoking "Samsung Messages' ability to access storage". He wrote that the app was sending scheduled messages early, that some messages were ending up in wrong threads. It may be related to a recent T-Mobile profile update to the new RCS text-messaging format. Since several accounts said photos had been randomly sent to partners or family members, there is also speculation that the problem affects shared plans.

If you have a Samsung phone this would seem to be relevant information for you.

Samsung has acknowledged in a statement that "We are aware of the reports regarding this matter and our technical teams are looking into it".

Samsung is aware of the issue and is working to resolve the problem.

There are now two fixes if you are anxious about the issue affecting your device. If you can answer "yes" to both, then you'd better make sure you're using a texting app other than Samsung Messages for the time being.

Until a proper solution is put in place, users are advised to go into the settings on your phone and revoke Samsung messages' access to your phone's storage.
