    I have homesharing turned on on my laptop for my iPhone, and iPad. I live above my parents bar and they have free wifi so I use that. In iTunes on my laptop I click on the house with the music note and there's another library there titled "B's Library". I have no idea who that is. I clicked it and all their media shows up and I tried to play a song and it works. I thought it was all connected via apple id. Can this "B" person see my library and play my media?

    Is the house icon for that library blue or yellow?

    Grey/blue means it is a shared iTunes library, not a homeshared library. They cannot see your library.

    ok thanks! so it's probably just one of my neighbors sharing on the wifi network? I found in the preferences that I was actually sharing my library on wifi too, so I added a password.
