I recently plugged my iPhone to my Mac. Ever since I did that, every time that I text on my iPhone it shows an icon pop up on the Mac screen, however I am not set up through messaging on my Mac. I am wondering if there is a way to stop the computer from showing that I am typing and showing who I am texting. It does not show conversation or any details, just who I am texting. It is pretty annoying.

  • i added them to the previous post. the second picture is when i tap the icon. It shows a conversation wanted to be started with the person I was texting on my iPhone. – jc18 Jul 28 '15 at 5:17

You have Handoff turned on under Settings>General>Handoff & Suggested Apps on your iPhone.

Switch off Handoff and you shouldn't see it anymore.

Though I would be more concerned with the message to "ransom"....
