I've recently bought a new Mac.

iMessage is on it. I'd rather not have it on my computer. I want my texts to be kept private. How do I keep it on my iPhone and remove it from the Mac?


In the Messages application on your Mac, go to

  • Messages > Preferences > Accounts
  • select your iMessage account
  • uncheck the "Enable this account" checkbox that is below your Apple ID.
