    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
    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'?

    happened under IOS as well, but really, just delete and move on. No doubt someone in Oly will get spanked.

    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 Japanese notification and thanks to the heads up from you guys I deleted it before opening.
    Thanks for the warning!

    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.

  9. I got the apology, but not the spam. They need to apologize for the apology.

    Hey n3eg, I got the spam and no apology. Maybe Olympus sent my apology to you?
