How do I permanently stop iPhone text messages from appearing on my iMac. I don't want to send/receive/view messages on my computer. I only want to use my phone for sending/receiving/viewing messages. Also, I'm hoping the fix doesn't require constant maintenance. I've gotten advice for this before, but the fix has to be repeated every time I restart my computer.
To disable Text Message Forwarding:
- On your iPhone, open the Settings app, then tap on Messages, then Text Message Forwarding.
- Tap on the on/off button across from your Mac's name to disable.
If you specifically mean iMessage, rather than SMS forwarding, then ...
- Launch Messages on the Mac
- Messages menu > Preferences > Accounts > [Settings] > Sign out
