The newer models of Samsung mobile devices feature an interesting ability, they can send your entire gallery of pictures to contacts on your Samsung Messenger app, without your knowledge or consent.  Samsung has yet to admit there is an error, let alone release a fix for this new feature but The Inquirer offers you a workaround.  In the settings of your Samsung Messenger app, disable the apps ability to access your phone's storage; this will prevent you from sending pictures you intended to send but it is probably best for everyone if you do this until a fix is release.

"The Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+ and Note 8 have all shown evidence of the glitch, which is causing the Samsung Messages app to send photos - sometimes one, sometimes the entire ruddy gallery - on, sometimes before you've even noticed it's happening."

Gosh, why is this even a problem? I mean, what could go wrong?

I certainly don't have any pics I wouldn't want to randomly share with...EVERY PERSON ON MY CONTACT LIST.
