How to change your AirDrop name

If you’ve ever had an AirDrop connection drop and then couldn’t recover it, you may have been wondering how to change your AirDrop name. This is easy to do, and can help prevent those annoying connectivity issues. Here’s how:

1 Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
2 Tap on “AirDrop.”
3 Under “Name,” type in a new name for your AirDrop connection. This should be something that is easily recognizable and will not conflict with any other AirDrop connections you may have.
4 If you want, you can set a passcode for your new name. This will help protect your name from being accidentally changed by others.

How to change your AirDrop name

When you connect to a AirDrop network, your name appears in the list of available devices. Tap the device you want to use and enter the new AirDrop name. If you’re using an iPad, hold down on the screen and drag it over to another person so they can share with you.

If you’re not happy with the name that’s been assigned to your Mac when you first set it up, there are a few ways to change it.

The simplest way is to use the Name command in System Preferences. To do this, open System Preferences and click on the Keyboard & Mouse button. Then, under “Nameplates”, select your Mac’s name from the list of available names. If this doesn’t work, you can also try re-adding your Mac to your network and trying again—or contacting Apple support.

If you need to change the name for security reasons or because someone else has already taken possession of your Mac, you can use an AirDrop alias. This lets you create a temporary name for your Mac that other people can use without having access to its actual identity. To do this, open AirDrop on your computer and enter the alias address (the complete address including the port number) into the box beside “Add contact”. You can then press Return or Enter to add it to your list of contacts. Anyone who has AirDrop enabled on their computer will be able to share items with your alias as if it was your own device.
