My son is on my family sharing and I need to check his email messages from another device. His email is an @icloud.com account. Is this possible and if so how would I do this? Thanks!

Answer:

When you get to the iCloud page, you have the option of signing in. It will ask for Apple ID and password. Enter your son's Apple ID and password to open his account.

I'm confused about where to find his credentials for an apple ID. He is only 9 years old and I believe his email is created under my ID. But when I go to turn on iCloud mail in my iPhone settings it asks to create a new iCloud.com email. I don't see where I can access his email under my iCloud account. Can you walk me through this process? TIA!

The simplest solution would be to use a web browser and to to iCloud.com, log into his Apple ID using his username and password. Since he is only 9 and his email is created under your ID, I'm assuming you set it up (as the Family Sharing creator), therefore you should have the password.


Anyway, iCould.com on a browser, not through a mail application, log into his account with his username & password and see his emails there.


I hope this helps.
