Not Good: Samsung Phones Texting Photos to Random People

That's because posters to Reddit and the Samsung forums say Samsung Messages is malfunctioning.

They added that they had enabled a setting allowing pictures to be automatically backed-up to Google, and suspected that the leak occurred because of an update to the Samsung Messages app.

Users' complaints on the official Samsung forums and Reddit indicated that their Samsung devices including the more recent models Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy S9 have been texting contacts at random without any notification.

Some Samsung smartphone users have reported that their devices randomly sent photos to their contacts without their knowledge and without a trace. Errors included scheduled text messages ending up in the wrong threads. It may be related to a recent T-Mobile profile update to the new RCS text-messaging format. These features include improved media sharing, read receipts and typing indicators.

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.

Speaking to Gizmodo, Samsung said it was aware of the issue and its technical teams were looking into it. "Concerned customers are encouraged to contact us directly at 1-800-SAMSUNG", Samsung said in a statement. TechCrunch has also reached out to T-Mobile for comment.

The issue isn't specific to one mobile carrier alone, and users from different operators reported the same problem.

There are now two fixes if you are anxious about the issue affecting your device.

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".
