I'm noticing a shutter noise when i tap in a wrong knock knock code , but it's not every time.
Anyone else getting the same? I checked and there are no photos being taken. I'm on an 855 UK model 16gb

Yeah I get the same.. It's just a denied tone I guess as the screen switches off (depending on your effect - I use Black Hole)

I had the same problem on my US Verizon G3. I tracked it down to AirDroid's "find my phone" feature. If you're still having this problem and use AirDroid, try turning that off in the app's settings menu.

It must be the Intruder feature.

If you've enabled Find Phone in AirDroid, then a photo will be automatically taken when someone tries but fails to unlock the device. After two consecutive failed attempts or if the device is not unlocked within 2 mins of the first failed attempt, the photo will be uploaded to your AirDroid account to help you find who's trying to unlock your device.
