Samsung Phones are Randomly Sending Users’ Photos to Contacts Without Their Knowledge

The Infinite Brief
According to numerous Redditors, a bug is causing Samsung Messages to randomly send pictures to contacts without leaving any sort of evidence.

Rather than being a carrier or device-specific quirk, the bug appears to be rooted in the Samsung Messages app itself.

To make sure you don’t have any photos sent out without your knowledge, go to Settings -> Apps -> Samsung Messages -> Permissions -> Storage. From here, disable the permission and you should be safe until Samsung rolls out a fix.
