SIGN ON with APPLE.COM and get
your own iCloud account...

Get on-line with APPLE support... they will help you.

((personally... if you read all the fine print you will find your data security (and ownership) is NOT GUARANTEED.

For me that is NOT ACCEPTABLE.

TOTALLY not.

Back you "STUFF" up to you own system...

and put your REALLY important "STUFF" on ever cheaper
memory drives (in your control.

And PROTECT THEM YOURSELF... (I'm just saying).

But then again... I paranoid.

Go to the settings icon - then go down till you see iCloud and iTunes and Appstore. You need to go to both and sign out of them. You might need to enter the password of the former itunes holder.

How do I sin out of my iPad my iPad won't let me


Understand that all the apps and data on the iPad are associated with an Apple ID so "signing out" of your iPad may render some apps and functions useless.

If you are looking to sell your iPad its best to plug it into a computer and restore factory defaults. This will remove all apps and IDs associated with your iPad.

If you are simply looking for security and worry that while signed into your Apple ID there is a chance for fraudulent downloads and purchases it would be my recommendation to set a password/passcode for the iPad that only you know. This will prevent other users form gaining access to your data without your permission.

The iPad is not meant to sign in and sign out at will but if you need to sign out and add another Apple ID then here are the steps to do so.

There are 2 places in which your Apple ID are linked with your iPad. Your iCloud account (photos/documents/ID) and iTunes (music/movies/apps)

You can adjust settings for these individually under Settings > iCloud and Settings > iTunes & App Store

Simply click on the Apple ID email and then choose "Sign Out"
REMEMEBER, some apps and functions may not work without an associated Apple ID registered with the iPad.

Good luck!

Change Apple ID on ipad


If you have adopted a used iPad, I suggest that you perform a complete restore. This will give you a fresh and clean iPad to which you can register your own Apple ID. You will not be able to keep the contents on the iPad as you received it, but you will be able to enter your own ID.
Good Luck
