This setting on your phone could leave you open to receiving unwanted photos from 'creepy men

In the smartphone age, men have found yet another way to share unwanted pictures of their junk: using iPhone AirDrop.

The sharing feature can be used to exchange photos between nearby iPhones within a certain range. If you change your AirDrop setting to “everyone” and forget to turn it off or set it back to “contacts only,” you can receive pictures from random nearby strangers.

Women in London and New York have complained of the problem after riding the train. Doc Thompson and the guys discussed the story on Wednesday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson.”

“It really felt like someone had actually just flashed me,” subway rider Britta Carlson told the New York Post after receiving an unwanted picture of male genitalia. Frankie Navisch, another recipient of a random “dick pic,” pointed out to the Post that these pictures could also end up on children’s phones since the images go to any nearby iPhone with open AirDrop settings.

To see more from Doc, visit his channel on TheBlaze and listen live to “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” weekdays 6–9 a.m. ET, only on TheBlaze Radio Network.
