Samsung S8 changes my number when sending a group text in Message+

I recently upgraded from the s7 to the s8.  Now when I send a group message through Message+ I am asked to give the group a name and the receivers of the text get it from a number that is not mine. 

If i reply to a group text created by someone else it works just as it did before.

How can i make group texts show up as my number?

Hawken89, these days we all rely on our phones for those quick messages. We want yours to be going smoothly. It sounds like what you wish to do is send these messages to multiple recipients without creating a group. To do so, please go into Settings and see if Group Conversations is checked to Use MMS to start group conversations. If it is, uncheck it then restart the application and try out a new group message. As to the number showing, are the others that you are messaging using the Messages + app?
