Samsung’s texting app is randomly sending messages and photos

Ever had the lingering fear that you’d inadvertently message the wrong phone contact? For some Samsung phone owners, that appears to have come true.

Users on Samsung’s community forums and Reddit have reported their phone’s official Messages app randomly sending photos and scheduled texts to other people. In one case, it reportedly sent someone’s entire photo gallery to their girlfriend overnight.

It’s not certain when there will be a fix. In the meantime, though, your best choice may be to disable Messages and use another app, such as Google’s Android Messages. Suffice it to say this isn’t a minor bug — it’s at best confusing, and could require some very awkward explanations to friends and loved ones.
