    I recently got a Verizon GS3, as did my coworker. I am NOT connected to wifi, but my coworker was able to see ALL my photos and albums. I have checked every setting that makes sense - turned file sharing off, made sure wifi is off, and disabled the special features (NFC, Android Beam, SBeam, Wifi-Direct, and switched off "Nearby Devices File Sharing").

    I'm petrified that anyone around me is now able to view my private items. any help would be appreciated.

    thanks
