So often, I hear comments that iCloud does not work properly and causes problems in families.
One of the key complaints is that family members end up getting each others' message, and iCloud is usually blamed for this problem.
The reality is, iCloud is not really the problem when it comes to any device 'confusion' in families. It is that the various devices in the family have not been set up properly.
Be careful what you say in iMessage!
It is important to be aware of the potential existence of 'iCloud confusion' in the families of the people that you send messages to.
Because of this incorrect iCloud setup, you can never be sure who will see a message that you send! Kids or husbands might also be getting your messages!
In many cases, people just throw their hands up and assume it is just a 'quirk' of iCloud and iMessage. It is not, and can certainly be rectified quite easily.
If you need help with sorting out your family's iCloud confusion - and ensuring that others are not getting your Messages (and perhaps your Contact, Calendars, etc), contact iTandCoffee on 1300 885 420 (or email firstname.lastname@example.org).
Another way that your Messages may be seen by others
Another way that your messages can be seen by unintended eyes is when messages appear in full on the owner's Lock Screen.
This can be prevented - ie. you can tell your iPhone and iPad to only show the message in full if the screen is unlocked. When the screen is locked, an alert will simply appear saying that a message has been received, with no details.
Find out how you can prevent full display of your message on your Lock Screen in the below Handy Hint, available for members of The iTandCoffee Club. (Sign in here first, if you are not already signed in.)
