    So a friend of mine has a Sammy S3, along with her husband. She stumbled on something, and it's blowing our minds
    When she's at home, connected to her wifi, she goes into the gallery.
    presses the button to the left of the physical, and checks "scan for nearby devices"
    All devices connected to her wifi show up. This includes her husbands phone.
    She clicks on that device that's now listed in HER gallery, and BAM, she has access to all the pics on HIS phone.
    I've attached some screenshots that I had her send me (I edited them as there were pics of her kids on there)
    I tried to reproduce it with my devices, but I only have 1 smartphone. When I scan for devices, I see my computer, but cant access it.
    That screenshot is attached as well.

    She's not rooted. Her husband is tech savy, their relationship isn't the greatest, so I'm wondering if he did something to their phones? Or, can this be breach of security be normal?

    (The top 2 pics are hers, the bottom pic is mine. My computer name is superhero is that's confusing you, lol )

    Can you see pics on another phone?-beth1a.jpgCan you see pics on another phone?-beth2a.jpgCan you see pics on another phone?-screenshot_2012-12-28-21-07-41.png

    Yup... it's always been that way. I have mine turned off (Disabled). I dislike the feature and only want to see what is on my device.

    Under the wireless settings choose more settings. Tap nearby devices and uncheck file sharing.
    Then turn off all share cast.
