    My son has an iPad and I have an iPhone,. How can he be seeing my iMessages? When I first got the phone I used his ID but that has been changed to my own.

    It sounds like you are sharing the same Apple ID for iMessage.

    Be sure to sign out from iCloud and iMessage and then sign back in with your own separate Apple ID.

    Bingo But you'll need to do it on the device that is seeing the messages it shouldn't.... obviously not on the device that should.

    Don't share the same iCloud, iMessage and Facetime ID's. You can share the same iTunes ID if you wish. But iCloud, iMessage and Facetime ID's should be your own.

    This is what we do, except the daughter has her own and we use family sharing. All iCloud are unique though.

    I'd probably do Family Sharing if there were kids. Seems a bit much for just my Wife and I. We've shared my iTunes ID for 2 years, and that works great. And this way we don't have to pay twice for in app purchases.

    Agreed. Wife and I share an iTunes. Family Sharing is for the teenager so she can use her own gift cards but still have access to the rest of the iTunes purchases.
