    Oook... So I updated my phone and set up my iCloud a couple weeks ago on my girlfriend of four years computer. Then ish went south... We broke up... She moved out... Now she is using it to spy on me. What are my options? I figure, what she already has there is nothing I can do about right? And I imagine I can probably delete my account from the phone to prevent any new info gettin to her. But if I ever want to use the service again, (once I buy my computer) will it start loading back up on her computer again? Ughhh what a nightmare! G*# D@€# Robots!!!

    But won't it keep backing up all of my texts and stuff to her computer?

    No, it'll ask for the new password I believe.

    Don't know for sure, because I don't use it. Though if it's on her computer with your current password, how can it backup if her computer has the wrong password?

    You could always stop the service and create a new account all together.

    Easy there Reverend, "Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain".

    Log into iCloud from another computer.
    Change your iCloud password.

    Done.

    Turn it to your advantage by uploading a bunch of stuff that drives her nuts when she sees it. Photos of you with a hot babe, for example.

    Well I don't have another computer so my resources are a tad limited. If I delete my iCloud account from the phone, since all my info (contacts, apps, ect) were put on the phone using iCloud, will it clear it off of my phone? Or just delete the backup?

    Change your password first. It won't remove any of the existing data, but it should at least prevent her from accessing new data.

    You live near a public library? I can't believe there is not another PC in your life you can use to log into iCloud.

    It seems that after 4 years when things go south they don't go south over night. I would have deleted that **** long before. Total bummer but lessons learned.

    No, my wife and I shared an Apple ID back in the day. When we switched to our own IDs, it immediately asked her for the new password when she started up her iPhone. She decided to get her own ID so she could have her own game center scores. Yes, we're still married (got married 3 months ago). lol.

    Seems like the easiest way to go. Also, don't forget to change any passwords that she might know.

    Go into Settings > iCloud > and turn everything OFF. This will pull a lot of the stuff off the account. Turn off the Storage & Backup too.

    And yeah, change your password.

    If you turn iCloud off first, it will pull stuff? Then change the password after it pulls stuff?

    If you change the password first I would imagine it wouldn't pull anything off her computer.

    You are correct. That is how I pulled my stuff out of it since I share accounts with some other people. You should keep the same password in the meantime then change it afterwards.

    NOPE, since it's called "iCloud" and not "icomputer" it backups everything up to the CLOUD ( apple servers ).

    Now if you were using her computer as MASTER LIBRARY for iPhoto then photostream was maybe importing your pics to her computer.
    To break this connection just change password.
    If you didnt set up her computer to be a master library for iphoto then you are all good! :)
