How to disable Apple ID on older devices

It is normal to use different credentials on various devices such as smartphones, tablets and computers, for example. With Apple ID (official iPhone, iPad and Mac users account) this is no different, especially if you need to check your account or buy something from the App Store on a friend's device or something. The biggest problem with this is that other people can have access to your account at any time. Fortunately, you can disable the use of your Apple ID remotely and very simply. To learn how to do this, just check out our tips below!

Disable Apple ID

The first thing you should do is open the iTunes program on your main computer, where you usually connect your Apple devices, such as the iPhone or iPad.

With the program open, go to the tabs at the top of the screen and choose the option "Account", as highlighted in the image below:

From the available options, choose the “View my account” option to proceed.

It is very likely that you will need to enter your password to make sure iTunes is safe to display account information.

This will allow you to see various details of your Apple account, including how many devices are allowed to make purchases with that specific account. This can be seen in the "Computer Authorization" option.

If you have more than one authorized computer, you can click "Turn off all computers" to make things easier and not have to disable them one by one. If you prefer to do the work individually, go back to the tab at the top of the screen and click "Account."

Then click "Authorizations" and "Deauthorize this computer" to complete the action.

If you choose this method, you must do this on all manually authorized computers. So the option to disable all ends up being better when many are already enabled.
