    Hi everyone .. A friend asked me to give him my apple ID because he wanted to download a paid application, I signed in to my ID using his iphone and now i have concerns if there's any cons from doing this? Can he see my icloud pictures and stuff?
    I don't have his iphone anymore .. so what should i do ?
    Thanks

    Can your friend and tell him to sign out. If you don't trust him over the iPhone, ask for a screen shot of proof he signed out.

    I don't trust him and i'm not able to see him these days. Does changing my ID password make him logout or something?

    Thanks

    Just change the password.
    It will eventually require him to enter it anyways.
    Problem solved.

    Yes, he can only download things that you already have.

    If you don't trust this guy - why give him or ID then?

    So your main concern is he will see your iCloud pictures? Whatever it is you don't want him to see, it may already be too late. He could have made a copy etc
    I'm gussing you are rather young?
    Can I be honest here.
    Never give anybody your password, or log them into your I/d no matter how good a friend they are.
    Sounds like this is probably your ex. Considering you are probably the generation that grew up with this sort of technology, I can't believe how nieve you have been.
    By the way, if he knows the I/d password, do you use it anywhere else? I suggest you change them all.

    Termination of your account due to violating the terms is one potential con.

    Change your password, don't share your credentials with your friends & read and understand the terms.

    Depending on the restriction settings on his phone, he could have purchased applications and made in-app purchases that will be charged to you. If you only signed in to the iTunes Store (and didn't show him your password) then he will not be able to do anything else that requires entering the password again.

    If your iCloud account has the same password, you should consider making it different than your Apple ID for security reasons including *and* unrelated to your question. :)

    And again, change your password if you haven't already. :D

    Good luck!

    You can always refuse. After all technically you breached the terms and conditions you signed when you got an apple I/d.

    That's why passwords can be changed... so you're not stuck with using the same one over and over. :D But I don't understand why you needed to come here and sign up just to figure this out :confused:

    Oh for god’s sake…

    Do yourself a favor that will benefit you for the rest of your life: Learn how to say "NO" and mean it.

    why even post? you addressed none of what she was asking in your ridiculous and judgmental reply.

    OP, just change your password at this point as has been mentioned above.

    Thanks for the critique of my post. I was passing on useful advice for somebody.

    You just advised her to change he'd password (which she said she already had, about half way through the thread)

    So why bother posting?

    Why did you let him buy an application using your account? He should have his own account for buying apps. Also, it does violate the ToS.

    And depending on which spots you entered the account information is how much of your data he can see. Didn't he sign back on to his own account after he downloaded the app?

    That's the opposite of what MBHockey thinks!

    I thought you did a good analysis (not sure how accurate, but I think it's damn near spot on) and you ended it with what's important "change all your passwords".
