    Every time i use Siri to set a reminder my whole family gets it. How do I make her use a different list?

    I tried to delete the family list but apparently it cannot be.


    Using iPhone 6 with 8.1.3.

    One more screen:

    Screen>reminders>default list>reminders (or any other list you want to use as default)

    EDIT: After a second reading of your last post it appears you likely found it.

    Bump. The post above is from iOS 6 in 2015, but still relevant..

    It's 2018 and my iOS 11.2.5 Apple Watch / iPhone X are

    How do you turn Family Reminders off?
    I had to turn off Reminders completely on my iPhone (now I see only Reminders I created on my iPhone -- on my iPhone -- not my Mac)

    I recently added my wife to the "family". At the same time I start adding reminders through Siri on my Apple Watch

    "Hey Siri.. remind me to take my ham sandwich to lunch tomorrow"

    Wife sends text "why am I seeing this on my phone?" ("Take Ham Sandwich to work").

    (Yes, I went into my phone and deleted all the family reminders one by one -- but Siri adds them back)

    But, I don't want Siri telling my whole family about my upcoming proctology exam..
