    Hi there I was wondering if any one can help me...

    I would like to remove some Macs from the "Text Message Forwarding" menu because they are no longer valid (these were paired during Yosemite testing and I have since deleted the beta partitions and have Yosemite on my main HD)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    According to a thread in the Yosemite forum, the solution is to change your iCloud password. I also have this issue, but haven't had a chance to try the solution since it means re-logging in with every device.

    I can confirm that changing your Apple ID password works.

    I think you can do that from iCloud by removing it from your account.

    there is no way to remove text message forwarding devices from iCloud. You can remove devices from Find My iPhone only.

    will try this now.

    Changing iCloud password worked! TY bankshot & cosminsel

    To others who will do this: Keep in mind you will have to re-input your *new* iCloud password everywhere you use it (OSX, iOS) and you will also have to re-do app-specific passwords as well as re-link your iPhone with the Mac for Text Message Forwarding.

    This has been bothering me for a while now! I can also confirm changing the password works to clear the list. I too had an old mac on the list that I no longer own.
