    Saw all my devices and just noticed that i saw one device of a friend of mine *a macbook pro)
    somehow it uses my apple id

    how can this be?
    Is that computer able to see the rest of the features like iMessage.facetime etc of my apple id ??how can i unlink my apple id from that computer?
    Please help!

    yes i just did this
    even though i had changed the password in the past
    still when i sign in to icloud.com
    on the find my iphone section the macbook is still there
    by mistake i have pressed erase...

    my main concern is if that person could actually see my iMessages or FaceTime calls or any other detail that relates tis services used by my apple id :(

    If the macbook in question is logged into iCloud using your Apple ID the person who owns the macbook has access to your contacts, calendar, reminders, notes, iMessages and photos in photo stream.

    My guess is that it's probably just the last location whenever your iCloud account was on his computer. (I guess by friend you mean someone who you sold your old device to?)

    iCloud can cache your last location (you can turn off this setting if desired)

    actually it wasn't a computer i sold..it was a computer i a friend had and brought it in for me to help him with a few things..
    i am just worried that maybe sensitive information are shared with that computer even though i have changed the password twice..one time a couple of months ago and one time yesterday
    i removed the device from find my iphone on icloud.com

    i hope that is all its needed?

    If he is your friend, can't you just look at his computer to check that it is still not signed on with your Apple ID?

    If it is, then you can simply log your Apple ID off his computer and then you can sleep in peace...

    If it isn't, then there is nothing for you to fret about...

    Unfortunately I can't reach him anymore
    I think I will call apple first thing tomorrow and see what they will say

    As I have said I have changed my passwords several times

    If you changed your password he definetly CAN'T(!) access any more informations.

    If the macbook is still displayed in "Find my phone" on icloud.com it's the last known location of the device when your Apple ID was signed in.

    i guess you are right
    not sure why i got my apple id on that computer
    i had it only for a few days
    that was totally weird
    s for icloud.com
    i have removed the device from the list of the find my iphone section

    hopefully my sensitive information weren't showing on that computer as well as on all my other apple devices!
