How to diasable FINGER command

Concerned newbie here...

I've been asked to find out how one can disable the FINGER command.
That is, if I (more specifically, women concerned about their safety
on campus) don't want my name and location to show up when someone
FINGERS me how do I shut it down?

please email me if it's not a problem

1. FINGER: How can I know who is fingering or fingered me?

Hi, netters,

Does anybody know if I can aware somebody is fingering me or once fingered
me? If yes, can you tell me how? I once saw such kind of discussions here. I
think it is enough to know which machine is fingering me.

Many thanks.
