Apple fans have been enjoying the latest iOS 17 upgrade and the iPhone 15 series for several months now. However, Apple fans are divided on the new NameDrop feature, because some bad actors could use it to steal information based on recent law enforcement advisories.

Apple ensures that users are safe and can select which pieces of information are shared when they use NameDrop. Additionally, you have the option to either Receive Only or share when the NameDrop feature is presented. This means you are able to be selective with what information you choose to share while using the feature.

If you still don’t feel comfortable with NameDrop, you can easily disable the feature manually by following these steps:

  1. Open the Settings app
  2. Tap on General
  3. Navigate to the AirDrop tab
  4. Toggle the Bring Devices Together option off

Once you disable the feature, it will no longer appear as an option in AirDrop. If you change your mind later, you can easily toggle the Bring Devices Together option. For more cyber safety tips visit or contact us for a free consultation at or 703-790-0400.
