In my finder, on my Macbook, there are details of shared computers, I want to delete

Customer Question

I can see the files of these computers, and I presume they can see mine. I don't want to see them and I don't want them too see me. I want privacy and don't want shared anything! Can you help, please?

Click the Apple Menu>System Preferences...

Click Sharing in the third row from the top

Your file sharing preferences will open, If you want to cut off all outside communication with your computer, make sure all the services in the left-hand column are unchecked.

After this is done, people will not be able to see your computer, but you will still be able to see theirs if they haven't shut off access this way also.

It should just be computers on your network, are you sharing a network with computers out of your control?
