    It happens sometimes when I scroll my messages with my left hand that it hits the camera button and swipes up, then takes a picture and sends it...

    Wow, I just tested it out, and yeah, I can see how it's incredibly easy to do that. Kind of worrisome :eek:

    Oh booy. Is there any way to disable this? Seems dangerous.

    Good question. I didn't find anything in Settings.

    Geesh, just tried it myself...yeah, I that's way to easy to just swipe up on the camera icon and send a selfie. I'm surprised it doesn't give any type of prompt or anything, just sends it off as soon as you release your finger from the screen.

    I think the audio one does this too. Hopefully they change this or add a setting.

    Just tried it. Didn't realize how easy is to inadvertently do.

    I'm hoping for an option that adds it to the message box and then you just have to hit send.

    Sounds like another overlooked user interaction that will hopefully get adjusted in some way in an update.
