Hi, I have just noticed that I seem to have messaged one of my contacts with a really rude message. Can iMessage be hacked?

    Do you have iMessage on yout iPad or Mac? If so, someone must have got a hold of one of them and sent out the message.

    No, but your AppleID can be hacked, and anyone with your AppleID and password can send an iMessage as you. Change your AppleID password.

    Also make sure your devices have passcodes so others can't use them and send messages.

    Thanks for your response. My daughter was using the iPad which is linked in to my account, however she is 8 and doesn't know this type of language so she definitely didn't write it.  We thought maybe predictive text changed the words but they wouldn't suggest these types of words. Looking at search history she hasn't been on any pages where it might have been copied and pasted. It's very strange.

    We have disabled iMessage on the iPad now.
