Samsung phones unknowingly self texting camera roll to contacts


Watch "If you have a Samsung phone, Watch Immediately!" on YouTube


Yep, its a real issue.


The question is, when is Samsung going to roll out an update for this?


I tried the workarounds as suggested from reading most of the articles on this by the following method below:

Settings > Apps > Messages > Permissions > and uncheck access to Storage and Camera

However, the workaround above does not work as I tried to open the Samsung Messages app and it would not open properly unless those permissions are allowed again.
