Trending News: A Samsung Bug Is Sending Photos To Random Contacts

Long Story Short

Go delete those nudes!

Long Story

If you’ve got the best password on your phone and keep it in a safe under your bed – that still might not save you from your dick pics being sent to your boss, apparently. 

Some Redditors have complained about their Samsung phones sending photos to random contacts, as first spotted by Android Police. The phones in question were Galaxy S9s and the photos were allegedly being sent through Samsung Messages.


“S9s have been sporadically sending the entire contents of one’s gallery to a contact via SMS, and it doesn’t show up on your side,” the Reddit user said. “Might be worth checking logs on your carrier’s site, because it happened on my T-Mobile Note 8.”

“Last night around 2:30 a.m., my phone sent [my girlfriend] my entire photo gallery over text but there was no record of it on my messages app,” writes a Galaxy S9 user in another post. “However, there was record of it on T-Mobile logs.”

These posters seem pretty chill about it, but imagine the pics were something really sensitive. You know, like that picture of a cat that makes you cry. Just kidding, imagine it sent nudes.

Gizmodo reached out to Samsung and they said: “We are aware of the reports regarding this matter and our technical teams are looking into it. Concerned customers are encouraged to contact us directly at 1-800-SAMSUNG.”

When asked, T-Mobile just deflected back to Samsung: “It’s not a T-Mobile issue.” That’s some classic telecom customer ‘service’ right there. 

So, should you be afraid of your phone sending out random messages? I doubt it. This sounds like it’s only impacting a few people, that is, if they’re telling the turth. That being said, you’d be wise to lock up any sensitive images. An app called Nude, which keeps your pics private, should do the trick.

This isn’t the first recent example of technology going rogue. An Amazon Echo reportedly leaked a couple’s private chat. BEWARE OF THE MACHINES.
