My Android phone just made an alert noise, and the only new notification had the same icon as Olympus Image Share (2.4), with Japanese text next to the icon... I tapped on it, and it opened the Android web browser, taking me to
http://olympus-imaging.jp/product/compact/1s/index.html
which is a Japanese-language page for the Stylus 1s

a. I do not want any spam!

b. there appears to be no way to disable the notifications/spam from within the app; I will try disabling Notifications from the Andoid App Info / settings

c. I do not speak or read Japanese nor have I ever been to Japan.

Is anyone else getting these 'alerts'?

I got that from the app as well, plus I got an email from Olympus in Spanish the other day, followed shortly afterwards by a very contrite apology email !

I got the sorry email but no Spanish email.

I got the same, then shortly after received an apology email from Olympus. Seems there was an email blast that went out to "the world" that should not have.
