Adjust Your AirDrop Settings to Stop Cyber-Flashing

AirDrop is a great feature in iOS as it allows you to share files like photos with people you are with or transfer from one device to another. The problem is when someone you don’t know sends you a file using AirDrop, is has been in the news recently as people have had this happen on public transport. It’s known as cyber-flashing. You can stop this from happening by adjusting your settings on your iOS device like your iPhone or iPad.

You will want to change the settings to stop anyone from sending you files. You need to set them to Contacts Only or Receiving Off.

Here’s a video I made to show you how.
