    I am giving my MBP to my cousin for some days, But I wanna make sure that he does not have access to my data i.e. notes, photos, iCloud etc...so if i sign out from iCloud on my MBP all my notes and Photos which I had saved. Will it be deleted from my MBP ? How do I stop him from not viewing my MBP and iCloud Data ?

    Check out this KB article from apple. It details the steps needed to basically wipe the computer and make sure its not associated with your apple id.

    Googling "Preparing mac for sale" got me this very well-written article as the very first hit.

    Edit: I see Mr. maflynn beat me to it.
