    Advice Sons phone has my contacts?

    Hi guys, my 11yo son has just got his first phone. I set it up for him and it now has all my contacts etc on the phone? I trust this is through iCloud or something like that?

    Is there a way to remove my contacts, I would still like to have find my iPhone enabled on the phone if poss?

    Any thoughts would be great as its doing my head in.

    Thanks.

    Go into settings on the Sons phone.
    click your name at the top
    go to iCloud.
    Uncheck the contacts tab.
    And any other bits you don’t want him to have like photos etc

    If I was you I’d save yourself the hassle of splitting his account from yours in the future and set him up with a child sub-account so he can have iCloud on and his data will go to his own account but you have parental control to authorise app purchases etc.

    On your phone: Settings, click your name at the top, Family Sharing, Add member, create an account for a child. Once you create it then sign in using this account on his phone.

    Thanks to evilsatan

    Perfect that?s very helpful mate. I didn?t realise that I could assign a kids account. Had it in my mind that you had to be an adult with a CC to access. Thanks 👍
