Smartphone updates are important for the device to function properly. Sometimes the update can be confusing and can lead to some unintended outcomes. For example, if you have an iPhone and have received the recent Apple iOS 17 update, they have set a new feature called NameDrop defaulted to ON. This feature allows the sharing of your contact information just by bringing your phones close together. This could put you or a loved one at risk if their contact information is shared unknowingly. To keep your contact information, secure please follow these simple steps to turn this default off:
- Go to Settings,
- Then General and select AirDrop.
- Then go to Bringing Devices Together and toggle it off.
If you find this information helpful, please share it with a friend or family member.
