Change the security settings for AirPlay
Apple TV 4K and Apple TV (4th generation)* requires you to enter a code displayed on your television the first time that you AirPlay from another Apple device. To change the security settings for who can AirPlay to your Apple TV, go to Settings > AirPlay > AirPlay, and select Require Code under Security. Then choose from the following options:
- First Time Only: If you choose this option, the first time someone uses AirPlay with your Apple TV, their AirPlay enabled device requires the AirPlay passcode shown on your TV (unless you already paired their device with the Apple TV Remote app).
- Every Time: If you choose this option, you'll need to enter an on-screen code every time you AirPlay to your Apple TV.
- Use Password Instead: To give access only to users who have your AirPlay password, choose this option. Then any user who wants to use AirPlay on your Apple TV needs to ask you for your AirPlay password.
*Apple TV (2nd and 3rd generation) don’t require a code, unless you enable Require Device Verification.
Set up Device Verification for Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation)
To set up a requirement for a one-time onscreen passcode for all AirPlay enabled devices, go to Settings > AirPlay > Security and turn on Require Device Verification.
Use Conference Room Display
Conference Room Display shows instructions for how to connect to Apple TV through AirPlay. Then everyone in the room can learn how to project the screen of their AirPlay enabled device to the display connected to the Apple TV.
Here's how to turn on Conference Room Display:
- Make sure that your Apple TV has the latest version of tvOS.
- Go to Settings > AirPlay > Conference Room Display.
- Turn on Conference Room Display.
Change the name of your Apple TV
Give your Apple TV a name so you can easily identify it when you use AirPlay. Just go to Settings > AirPlay > and select Apple TV Name.
To change the name of an Apple TV (2nd or 3rd generation), go to Settings > General > Name.
