Does anyone know how to actually disable the Airdrop service on OSX Sierra ( I've tried the command "defaults write com.apple.NetworkBrowser DisableAirDrop -bool YES" ) dont the Mac's are still broadcasting via Airdrop
I've restricted AirDrop using a configuration profile - But this only removes the AirDrop from Finder and not actually disables the service
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
does the configuration of discoverableMode in domain com.apple.sharingd you presented in your answer effect merely airdrop , or also other applications that uses sharingd ?
I wish to disable airdrop for security reasons for all the clients in my organizations, but I don't want side effect with other apps that might use this feature..
