Iphone 11 in hand

Law enforcement agencies, including the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office, are warning residents to turn off a new feature introduced in Apple’s iOS 17 update. The feature, called NameDrop, allows users to share their contact details with others by placing their phones near each other. However, law enforcement agencies are cautioning against using this feature due to potential privacy and safety concerns. They advise users to change the settings on their phones, including those of their children, after updating to iOS 17.
