So the last update on the Pandora app was on Jan 28th. I haven't used the app since then but since then it's been creating some album in my gallery. It's called com.pandora.android and only has one picture in it, which looks like some messed up version of the logo.

I'll post a picture here from my phone in a bit. Anyone else seeing this or why its doing it? i have no idea why Pandora is accessing my photos.

Here's a picture of the album I'm seeing http://imgur.com/JYSN8Ii

I'm going through the same thing, when I delete the picture the folder pops up in my gallery again soon after.

I never noticed the folder until I uninstalled the app and the Google Photos app tracked it down and asked to upload the images. Said no and deleted the folder.

Create an empty file in the folder and name it .nomedia - that will prevent the gallery from picking it up and including it.

I have a note 5 as well..... It will not let me create a file or folder. When I create a folder, nothing pops up except sometimes "folder in use". When I search for the folder, nothing!! It's driving me crazy. Help meee

you need a proper file manager to create a file. also make sure you enable "show hidden files" because if any files or folders name starts with a dot it means it is hidden and will not show in the files list unless the file manager app you are using has an option to show hidden files and folders.
i use solid explorer but if you search for file manager in play store you will find many more.
or download it from here
