My kids and I share an itunes account.  We all have apple products.  I do have a separate icloud account.  If I set up imessaging on my iphone will it show up on their devices?  Ultimately, is imessage linked to itunes login or icloud login?

iPhone 4S, iOS 6.1

    Hi amandask323,


    Whatever Apple ID you add to Messages will be the one that you will send and receive messages at.  You can learn more about the setup towards the bottom of this page:


    iOS 6 - Messages with iMessage


    So as long as your iCloud Apple ID is not added to your kids' devices, they will not receive your messages.
