Hi All,

 

Yesterday I tested Find my iPhone on iCloud and all my devices show, and also a Macbook Pro that is not mine!

 

I used to have and old Macbook Pro that I sold, but before I did perform a clean install of iOS.

 

Any ideas?


MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1)

    Whatever the explanation is, there's a mac that is connecting to icloud using your account.

    I have the same issue. It is for a Mac Pro - I have never owed a Mac Pro, singed into a Mac Pro with my iCloud account. It cannot located the device but it just shows up under my devices at icloud.com or using the IOS app- I can lock it, erase it, and make a sound though if I wanted to. Very confusing. Is anyone else out there having this issue?

     

    I have changed my iCloud password and the device still shows up!

    I have the same issue.  I sold my old macbook a while ago, and now it is showing up in find my iphone app.  I dont have his contact information to resolve this issue...so i have no idea if he has access to my icloud information.  I also did a clean wipe before selling.  Unfortunate for both of us because I could wipe his mac at any moment...and I always know where he is.

     

    I hope somebody can fix it.  Is it possible the macbook serial # is assigned to my apple ID?

    The same thing is happening to my wife's iCloud account.  An unknown MacBook is showing up. It may be the one she returned several months ago. This is very annoying and very dangerous, why hasn't apple fixed this issue.

    This might not be very helpful for your specific issue, but it did work for me.

     

    I sold my iphone 4 when switchign to 5 - restored factory settings first.  I then receieved an email a few months later that the iphone 4 is now viewing my imessages.  It was quite a discomforting email...apparently it is an issue apple is aware of.  I changed my icloud password.  The user without my new password is now unable to view my icloud information.

    Same problem here. Bought a MacBook Pro and returned it. Bought another MacBook Pro to keep and noticed the old MacBook on the list of devices with a different name. Says its offline and I removed it from the list but it keeps showing up every now and then. Very annoying
