In my Macbook, I keep getting a popup about a website link sent from an iPhone:

enter image description here

I didn't even know about that feature, but anyway - the link is some random chinese website every time. Whenever I open it, the popup appears again as if there is some sort of long queue of the same link.

If I disable bluetooth, the popup stops. But as soon as I enable it back, the stream continues.

When I got to the advanced Bluetooth settings, there doesn't seem to be an option to block this kind of thing. The only device that shows up are my BeatsX.

How can I stop this, without having to turn off bluetooth?

I am using macOS High Sierra, 10.13.2.


This is Handoff, part of Continuity, where devices signed into the same primary iCloud account can ‘hand off’ currently viewed content between each other.

Handoff isn't available for anyone to share content with you — this is only for you to share content between your own devices. I would be very concerned that someone has access to my iCloud account on a supposedly unknown device. I recommend investigating this further if you are unaware of the Continuity source.

You can disable all Continuity features including Handoff in System Preferences → General → Allow Handoff between this Mac and your iCloud devices.
