    I'm having an issue when I backup my photos from my Note 5 to my computer.
    I'll always have pictures that I have never taken. It'll be random peoples Facebook pictures. It's pictures I've never even clicked on to like or even profiles I've never viewed. It happens every time I backup my photos to my computer. It's frustrating b/c it's not just one or 2 it's 100's. It's also just random shapes or images as well.

    Does anyone know why this is happening and how I can fix the issue? Is there a setting I can adjust? I've searched and searched and couldn't find the right answer. I'm typically pretty good at figuring all this out.

    Hi there, CoeLeigh!

    The only thing that comes to mind (and it's early here) is that maybe your Facebook account or app settings are somehow set to save profile pictures and automatically download media files that appear in your timeline (or your friend's friend's cousin's pet's timeline). You might want to pour through all the settings, for both the phone app and the account, and turn off a bunch of stuff you don't need to see. And believe me: that's probably a lot.

    :)

    I'll definitely go look into that and adjust some settings. Appreciate it
