I don't know how my alternate id was taken over by my sister but now her is my alternate id. How do I change my alternate apple id? Is there someone I can call?

    By alternate apple id, do you mean the address you can create when you first setup icloud and had checked off 'mail' in the icloud preferences?  If that's the one, that cannot be changed.  If that is the one, it has probably been like that a while, since addresses haven't been able to be created since last Sept., if I'm not mistaken.

    Welcome to the Apple Community.


    Two accounts cannot use either the same primary or alternate address. I don't believe your issue is anything to do with alternate addresses, it sounds to me as though she is using the same account as you.
