Airdrop not working on MacOS Sonoma caused by Crowdstrike Falcon sensor

New Contributor II

Hey everyone,

Just an FYI

In our organisation we found that Airdrop was not working properly on MacOS Sonoma (14.2.1 at the time of writing). After troubleshooting I found that this was caused by the CrowdStrike Falcon sensor.

Crowdstrike have already released an updated version of Crowdstrike on the 9th of Jan (7.10.xx) that appears to fix this issue.

Just an FYI to help anyone who may be troubleshooting a similar issue. Perhaps check your sensor deployment policy and alter it if required.

Thought I'd post as I couldn't find anything here about this. There a little chatter about this issue on the MacAdmins slack too.

I would like to thank you for posting this. I was racking my brain why multiple people were complaining about AirDrop. This was helpful thank you.
