Seeing Avatar pic of unconfirmed contact


I am really surprised!

After adding a non-local (=from another xmpp server) contact to my roster I am able to see the contacts avatar pic of his profile although the other part did not yet confirm me as one of his contact?!

How come? I though the profile incl. the profile pic is “private” so it can only be seen AFTER establishing “friendship”, i.e. the other party confirming.

Openfire 3.7.1 with Spark 2.6.3 on Windows.

Thanks for the insight!

Indeed, there is no add friends can also see the privacy of others and even chat,appeared initially set openfire by default all contacts privacy to disclose all
