    Read the topic. He is asking it to help the TS disabling iMessage on her iPad which is not in her vicinity at the moment
    I read the topic. Take it easy. All I did was ask a follow up,question.

    How can I change it so he doesn't get them at all anymore? Because it is still showing blue when I type the email in. If I change my Apple ID and start using a new one for iMessage will he stop getting them?
    If you change your Apple ID, he will stop getting them.

    What if I change the password on my Apple ID? Would he be forced to re sign into iMessage?
    Yes.

    If there was no passcode set on the iPad before, you can lock it with a new passcode of your choice via find my iPad. There is no need to wipe it as my fellow forum member says. However if there was already a passcode set on the iPad, then there is no other choice other than wiping it.

    Maybe you can call your parents and ask them to disable iMessage in settings. There is a slight chance they will do as you said.

    You also can threaten your dad with a lawsuits if he continues violating your privacy
    Okay... Take it easy there.

    Normally it is yes. Are you trying to do something or just wanted to know?
    Just trying to brainstorm with all the info. I don't use my Apple ID email as one of the checked emails for iMessage.

    That is all I was trying to do. I would lean to turning off iMessage. Nothing else to really do on an iPad.

    Is the OP still with us? I don't get why her Mom can't get the iPad and sign it out of iMessage.

    Now you guys are confusing me. Some people say the OP is a male, some say female, but they never stated their gender. I thought the OP said it was their dad's iPad Mini. Don't take it the wrong way or anything. I'm just getting confused.

    Most straight-forward solutions I can give to the OP.
    • Remotely wipe the iPad
    • Change the email associated with the Apple ID
    • Change the password for your Apple ID
    • Go to your parent's house during the weekend and delete the account
    • Don't sign into your accounts on someone elses' devices

    Haha you guys all just blew up the thread. I am definitely still with you all and have responded quite a bit. I'm a guy too just to clarify. I'm home this weekend so I'm basically going to try and just change my password and then go from there. But I also made a new Apple ID so I guess I could just use that for my phone as well. What do you think is easier? I can't remember my security questions to change the password.... Not sure how to get those.

    I think your iTunes Apple ID, iMessage and FaceTime should be the same. iCloud should be different ID's. That way each device gets 5 free gb of storage. If the 2 devices use the same iCloud ID, they share 5 gb. Take a guess at those questions.

    If you made any purchases that cost money, you will lose them. Just change the email...

    If he recovers his old password and uses it when he changes to a new password, he won't lose any purchased items. He will if he opens a new account.

    I don't agree. I have 3 iTunes accounts (the Netherlands, Turkey and US) and I'm using my Dutch account also as iCloud account. So far I haven't lost anything, I can use the 3 of them simultaneously

    Do you switch from one to the other? Apple does not allow merging accounts. But I suppose you can sign out of one then into another.

    Yep, I am switching between them. Some apps like Facebook Paper are only available in the US Store, so I made an US account. I'm Turkish but live in The Netherlands, so I have both accounts for the same reason as the US account. But my main account is the Dutch account. I use the other accounts very few times

    You will have to sign out, then sign in with the new password. I don't know if it, "ask right away...".

    I changed the password on the original Apple ID and it asked me to resign in for find my friends and iTunes etc., then made a new Apple ID for iMessage and FaceTime for my iphone and signed into that. I'd imagine he'd have to resign in on the iPad because it the password is now different...
