    Well, that's scary. I just checked, and I had "everyone" selected. So I changed it to "contacts only". Here's how to find your AirDrop settings from Apple Support:

    "How to adjust AirDrop settings
    To choose who can see your device and send you content in AirDrop:

    Go to Settings, tap General.
    Tap AirDrop, then choose an option.
    You can also set your AirDrop options in Control Center. Here's how:

    On iPhone X or later, or an iPad with iOS 12 or later or iPadOS, swipe down from the upper-right corner of the screen to open Control Center. On iPhone 8 or earlier, swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
    Press firmly or touch and hold the network settings card in the upper-left corner.
    Touch and hold the AirDrop button , then choose one of these options:
    Receiving Off: You won't receive AirDrop requests.
    Contacts Only: Only your contacts can see your device.
    Everyone: All nearby Apple devices using AirDrop can see your device.
    If you see Receiving Off and can't tap to change it:

    Go to Settings > Screen Time.
    Tap Content & Privacy Restrictions.
    Tap Allowed Apps and make sure that AirDrop is turned on."
