Im not using the phone I had back when these pics were taken. Im not even using Android right now. Its a cheaper MetroPCS $20 disposable BlackBerry type of phone that holds an SD card.

This morning I flipped through the pics and I noticed something very strange. I noticed some pics were of websites I had visited. I thought that was odd and then I noticed it was mostly of things I had done either on a dating site or porn I had looked at. There were pictures of my school website. My bank log in. My phone bill log in. My gas bill log in. They were screen shots. Close ups and far shots of the same image. Theres about 40 pics.

It seems as I would browse the phone was taking screen shots and storing them in the SD card. They all have names like "s33950c5ba" for example. Can anybody give me any information that could give me an answer? Disturbing to say the least. The VERY first screen shot is of my log in to my school website where I was taking UNIX 101. After that is my dating profile and then after that is a screen shot of porn I looked at. Then its screen shots of bills and stuff. Thanks

Never seen anything like this, but it definitely seems like you had some sort of malware that was able to screenshot important info. If you haven't already, change all passwords and login info, as well as completely factory reset the suspicious device to remove any harmful app that may have caused this.
