    I have 2 ipads and an IPhone. I use the iphone for everything and i let kids use ipads. we share everything using the same apple id. We share apps, music, everything.
    I use the iphone for internet as well. Since we are all linked, anyone can delete our shared browsing history. Makes me suspicious.
    Is there a way that I can set it up so the other users can delete the history on their ipads, but it won't be deleted on my phone?

    THANKS!!!

    Bad idea to share an Apple ID. I'd look into getting that changed.

    In answer to your question: to resolve the issue you're having, go to Settings>iCloud and disable 'Safari'. That should do the trick.

    But again, I'd stop sharing Apple IDs.

    Thanks, but If I disable Safari in ICloud, I won't be able to see what they deleted, right? At this point I would like to see what is being deleted

    To clarify, someone is deleting browsing history, and I would like to see what is being deleted to see if there is reason for concern Thanks for the suggestion, but this wont allow me to see whats being deleted

    Sounds like you perhaps might want to set up some sort of restrictions on devices where you don't want certain actions to work.

    thats the standard answer I was expecting, but how would you know what to block if you dont know the potentially harmful activity that may be happening?
