This was answered in 2015, but it's not working for me:

How do I stop my Mac from ringing when I get a phone call on my iPhone?

Following the instructions there and elsewhere, I've turned off "Calls from my iPhone" in Facetime, and "Calls on Other Devices" in Settings > Phone on my iPhone, but every time my phone rings, I also get a deafening ring on my Mac.

  • so which app is ringing ?

  • It shows up as a notification from FaceTime.

  • Not a solution but until I can come up with one, I've disconnected FaceTime from my Apple ID.
