got an annoying little problem (see screen shot below)All of a sudden the other day, when I minimize ( is that the right term? when you squeeze on a page with your thumb & finger, to make it smaller?) a page, it adds that little bit on the bottom...about my phone & Google.
The Apple forums tell me its something called " handoff", where the phone & ipad kinda communicate with each other....
I dont need it, i dont want it, Why did it just start??
anyhoo, a couple of their suggestions how to get rid of it didnt work (surprise, surprise), so thought I'd try here for help.
any suggestions?

Since no one else has answered...I'm not an iPAD or iPhone expert, but the only thing that comes to mind is akin to...
"Doc, it hurts when I do this"
'So, don't do that':)

iOS14 just released .2 so I would put the question on the internet. We have noticed some changes (not all nice initially)

Have you tried

On your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch: Go to Settings > General > AirPlay & Handoff, then turn on Handoff.

or, I'm no gynaecologist, ...but I'll take a look.


Jargey: "Doc! How am I! Am I gonna be OK?"
Doc: "Don't worry, Jargey! You're gonna live to be 80!"
Jargey:"But Doc, I Am 80!"
Doc: "See? What'd I tell you?!"

Why does it say Google at the bottom? Is this Chrome? Might be a google setting or Chrome update. Similar to handoff Chrome can open mobile tabs on desktop and vice versa

Also I use Brave now. It's a version of Chrome that protects your privacy and gives you the ad revenue in the form of BAT crypto. Chrome on the other hand collects all your data by design
