    I was scrolling through my files the other day looking for where the zip folder for update 3.6.0 so I could move it to where all my other roms are and upon scrolling I noticed a folder labeled "OnePlus"

    The folder was in the main storage not in any android files etc I'll tag a screenshot. Anyway the OnePlus folder has 379 items and they're all pictures of people from the forums I guess.

    THE FOLDER HAS 379 PICTURES OF RANDOM PEOPLE. I wanted to know if anyone else has a folder like this ... its awfully odd and CREEPY.

    If I had been in the forums and opened up abunch of people pictures then sure I guess it makes sense but I don't have that much time to stock people on the forums.

    does anyone else have this folder? and can anyone tell me where the folder is containing Ota's? if there is one

    If you use the community app, it's probably just a cache folder from that.

    I understand it's cached imaged but that isn't the point. it shouldn't cache data I never accessed it's just messed up

    So you never read threads in the community app?

    So if you have a profile pic up on one plus community it's downloaded on every damn device , who ever sees your post ! Huge hit to privacy I would say. Hope they have this note up in the "terms of use". I really hope some one will sue one plus for this ...

    this is a privacy problem as well as the fact that it shouldn't cache the full image if it's even just displayed. its not like I'm going to open everyone's image.

    the main concern: Privacy.

    You should see what your browser on your computer stores in cache, you'd be amazed. Every app on every device which has to do requests over the internet tries to store stuff in cache because everything that is stored locally, shouldn't be requested next time. If apps or your browser wouldn't to that, you'd feel the difference in speed. These pictures are probably just images that someone used as their avatar or posted in a thread so how is that a security issue? They are publicly available online...

    If you want something to remain private you don't put it on the internet and if you do, you don't put it in a public forum...
