I have two MBP 2016 and i used to have them set as trusted, meaning on airdrop If i would set contacts only it could see the other, now I have to select everyone instead. How can I make it a contact of each other?


This is the core feature of handoff which also goes by the name continuity. To enable this, just sign into iCloud on both Mac with the exact same Apple ID.

At this point Safari browser tab handoff and other supporting application handoff, clipboards synchronization, as well as unprompted automatic AirDrop permissions is enabled.

  • sometimes the authentication can be stuck so log out and log in or restart both machines If you need to troubleshoot things once you’re signed in.
  • Bluetooth and Wi-Fi need to be turned on for this to work but it shouldn’t matter whether you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network or even the same Wi-Fi network.
