    I was the first in my family to have an Apple ID. Slowly but surely, more family members have gotten a hold of my Apple ID. I was wondering if anyone out there could give me advice regarding the following: I do not want anyone using my apple id to buy a song and have it automatically transferred to my macbook or iphone's itunes. I would much rather just have the aforementioned account be theirs, create a new account while retaining my macbook and iphone's music library, etc. Any advice appreciated. Thanks!

    Give them your old account and make a new one.

    Never give your new one to anyone else.

    If money is an issue due to re-purchasing apps and stuff, tell them to make their own account (shared or each member) but be sure to explain it to them nicely.
