    Does anyone else randomly get a notification that a bug report has been captured and ask you to email it, place it in dropbox or drive? At least once per week I get this. At first I thought that if I emailed it, then it was Google/Moto looking for bug reports to fix, but when I try to send the email it emails it to ME!

    Just wondering if I'm alone here.

    Not me as far as I know. I wonder if an app you installed is causing it.

    As a matter of fact I got one last night. But I have gotten at least one other one a while back. Not as often as you have been though, once a week. I dropped it in my dropbox instead of emailing it and it was like a 11MB txt file....WOW.
    Update...I think I figured out what happened to cause mine. When I got it last night I was tryin to do a screen capture and forgot which volume button to hit so I hit the UP vol button first before I hit the correct one (DOWN vol) along with the power button. So just now I tried the same combination, PWR button and UP vol, and I got another notice of a bug report captured.

    Speak of the devil and the devil appears. It just happened again. Take a look:




    It had this image attached to the big report.

    I think you are right! I just tried to recreate it and YES, every time I hold volume up and power, about 30 seconds later it produces a bug report. Thanks!

    Did the same thing to reproduce. Good catch!

    One thing I noticed, prior to notifying you that there is a bug, it looks like that file gets uploaded automatically to Google's servers. You are essentially uploading an 11 mb to google without knowing it has been sent to them. Like a status indicator or something.

    I know I'm real late on this but I've had this problem since I purchased this phone in Nov. I highly doubt that theres an innocent explanation. It is NSA. How can our buttons be this sensitive. We need yo wake up and educate ourselves to this mess.

    I receive these notifications all the time. I called Verizon. They didn't know anything. They wanted to do a manufacture reset. I called Motorola. They didn't know anything about it, but had me reboot it without losing all my information. I went a week without a bug notification, but then they returned.

    Hello everyone. I have been getting this bug report since early March and I have since reset my S4. I downloaded only the apps I need and used Helium and Google to back up my stuff.

    I did do a print screen yesterday which couldve triggered this bug report yet again.

    Does anyone know how we can contact Samsung regarding this?

    I have been getting this "Bug Report" generated since May 2014. I have done nothing to consciously generate this report. But, I have been trying to e-mail it because I was expecting it to know to whom it needs to go. Not a total blissful assumption given these come up at random times and seem to be Android capturing a problem and wanting to send it along to developers. Well ... I am ashamed to say that all this time I have failed to notice the reported were going to MY GMAIL ACCOUNT. What a waste of time and resource. Since Google and Android are one benevolent domain, someone should at least blaze a path for these "Bug Reports" to find their way back to the Igors in their bastions of development.

    Now that I know I've duped myself into believing that Google Android knows more about what happens on my Motorola Moto G running Android 4.4.4 than the NSA, I will simply delete these pesky bits of irrelevance.

    Nothing to see here, move along.

    If you are trying to do a screen capture and mess up the button press it will generate a bug report.

    Thanks for the reply, Chief!
    Not trying to anything.
    Most of the time just talking, texting, checking e-mails. I rarely turn the phone off, press the on button to wake it up, sound down during events, don't do anything special.
    It just seems to come up with this 'Bug Report' from nowhere, even after periods of no activity.

    Hey no problem Lucky, It seems that a few people have experienced this, including myself, and it is from a combination of pressing the power and vol up buttons but it can take a few minutes to actually compile the report and will not show up until the next time you wake your phone. I have read that you can turn this off by going into your setting>developer options and disabling the USB debugging option, although I have not tested that. If no luck with that then I would just keep deleting them because they are pretty big files for text files, at least mine were.

    Well the path on my i337 running stock 4.4.4 is: \Android\data\com.google.android.apps.docs\files\pinned_docs_files_do_not_edit\49c34f0efae55dd2eff65082035a3fea

    Hardly - in a Bug Report folder!!! The easiest way to do this is to let Win7 do a search of the Phone.

    The exact same thing happens to me. Why would I want to email a bug report to myself? I know nothing about writing apps or fixing apps and to be honest....I don't want to know how to fix an app...I've got better things to do with my time then to spend most of my time playing or working on Smartphone.... Quite honestly....I'm a dummy when it comes to this stuff. I know I have all kinds of Apps on my Nexus 5 that I will never use or even know what the app does. Such as SDK MANAGER, and SIM Toolkit, and other stuff.....Can anyone tell me if it is safe to remove pre installed apps that I don't use....such as HANGOUTS, or EARTH or GOOGLE PLAY BOOKS, or GOOGLE PLAY NEWSSTAND? I get message that tells me that other apps might misbehave.

    Greetings! The following instructions will stop Bug Reports in 90% of cases. There are ways to inadvertently enable the USB debugging option in Android 4+, which generates these reports. These instructions will allow you to deactivate that option.

    1. Go to Settings and scroll to the bottom of the menu
    2. If you see "Developer options" go to step 3
    2a. If you do not see Developer options, select About phone, scroll to the bottom of the menu
    2b. Press "Build number" seven times, this will make you a developer.
    2c. Go back and scroll to the bottom of Settings
    3. Enter Developer options menu
    4. Uncheck USB deugging
    You've now deactivated the Bug Reports

    Some programs, like FoxFi require USB debugging for certain activities, such as tethering with USB. The small crashes occur frequently and often don't affect the user experience. These reports give detailed information when a crash occurs, which can help developers. I hope this relieves some aggravation.

    To get rid of "Bug Report" go into your setting and scrool to the bottom to Developer Options and TURN OFF ADB DEBUGGING If you DO NOT have a Developer Options go to about phone and click on Build # about 7 times and that will open the Developer options on your phone. Good Luck

    this is normal if the developer options are enabled on your device, in the developer options, there is an option to take a bug report now, an option to include it in the power menu and an option to schedule automatic reports, turn off the option to schedule automatic reports.

    Where is this schedule bug report option? I see everything else you mentioned but nothing about a schedule.
