    Default Galaxy S5 downloading pictures on its own?

    My Samsung Galaxy S5 has been saving old pictures from my yahoo email by itself, without me physically clicking and downloading these pictures. I havent even looked at any of the pictures for a couple years now so there is no way i could have accidentally saved them.. they are saved into an album in my gallery called "attachments". I have no settings in my email set to where it would sync pictures either.. and it doesnt save all the pictures in my email, it saves random ones. Its saving them from seperate emails where the picture is an attachment. Has this happened to anyone else?? How/why is this happening and how do i fix it?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance~

    I've never heard of this but weirder stuff happens so I'm not saying I don't believe you.

    Do you have the yahoo email app?
    I'm asking because I do and tried to replicate your issue with no avail.

    Gallery - People is spooky!

    I found the People part of the Gallery had been doing that or similar for a long while on my Note 3. I never got a full explanation, though some help in this thread. It has stopped now, but I don't know why.

    ON EDIT : See if you can uncheck Tag Buddy and Face Tag in Gallery settings. Not sure if that clears it. .....
