Warning iPhone users: Anyone can upload obscene photos on your phone through this setting

When you board an airline, attend a concert, or go out in public, you may wish to alter a setting on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac computer.

Airdrop for the iPhone makes it simple to share images with pals. For example, if everyone is at an event, someone may Airdrop a group shot to everyone all at once instead of messaging or sending it to everyone one at a time.

The iPhone's Airdrop function makes it simple to share images with pals. For example, if you're all at an event, someone may Airdrop a group shot to everyone all at once rather than messaging or sending it to everyone one at a time.

Children and teens have recently Airdropped photographs of crashed planes, guns, and threatening messages to individuals on flights. Men airdropped obscene images of themselves to other passengers many times.

What causes this? How is it possible for a stranger to distribute photographs to unsuspecting passengers?

Anyone nearby may transfer a picture via Bluetooth if you have Airdrop enabled on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac computer. And, without realising it, many individuals have Airdrop enabled, allowing them to receive photos from anyone.

To avoid this occurring to you, go to settings> general> "airdrop" and alter the settings. You may turn off receiving entirely, leave it on for your contacts, or turn it on to get photographs from everyone.

It is recommended either to set it on to get photographs just from contacts or turning it off entirely. You may always switch it back on if you suspect someone is attempting to Airdrop a photo of a family gathering.

And, as some passengers on planes have discovered, pulling this prank isn't funny at all. It's relatively simple to figure out which phone is sending the image, and depending on what you send, you could be arrested.

When we receive an unwelcome image, it's natural to want to delete it from our phones so we don't have to see it again. However, it is recommended to keep the photograph so that criminals can be brought to justice through the courts.
