Every so often when I double click the home button on my iPhone6 (to switch between apps or close apps) I see a memo along the bottom saying something like Safari – From "Your Mac Mini". My Mac Mini is my desktop computer an my iPhone6 is my mobile device, but I don't use or open Safari on either of them. I've clicked the memo before and it's usually just a random site I've recently visited on Chrome.

  1. What are these memos for/about?
  2. How do I stop them from happening?

You are (perhaps inadvertently) using Handoff between your iPhone and your Mac Mini. This Support Page at Apple describes the Handoff setup process.

Extracted from the Support Page:

Turn Handoff on or off

Note: If you don’t see a Handoff option on your device, it doesn’t work with Handoff.

  • On your Mac: Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click General, then select “Allow Handoff between this Mac and your iCloud devices” (below “Recent items”). To turn it off, deselect the option.

  • On iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch: Go to Settings > General > Handoff, then tap to turn on Handoff. To turn it off, tap the option.

  • Or for short he can turn off bluetooth when near his Mac, in case he wants the feature in the future. Dec 14, 2017 at 2:50
