Tuesday, July 3rd, 2018

Creating (and maintaining) a great app can require a ton of work, so we're happy to compensate developers for all that effort by shelling over a few bucks for their content in the Play Store. But while many app-makers rely on this income stream, a new bug that's popped up in a recent Play Store update threatens to toss a wrench in the works, interfering with how apps can verify paid licenses.

Samsung Messages bug could be sending your photos without you knowing it

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

A bug in the latest Samsung Messages update is causing some devices to send photos without their owner knowing it. Some users report that the photos affected are ones they have sent before; others say their entire galleries have been distributed.

“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,” explains one user on Reddit. “Might be worth checking logs on your camera’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.
