Question: My apple ID still shows on my kids phones

Hello. Originally when my children got phones I set them up using my apple ID. That got tricky because we were sharing contacts, iMessages, etc. I had them all create their own apple ID but my name and apple id still show up in settings on their phone. Why is this?

iPhone 6s, iOS 11.1

Yes I signed out on their phone and had them sign in with their own apple id. My name is still showing up in settings. They use my credit card info but I had them add that when they created their apple id. technically they shouldn't be attached to my apple id at all anymore correct?

Where in Settings is your name still showing up? If it is for the App Store or iTunes Store, see LACAllen's post. You might want to consider setting up Family Sharing.
