Using someone else’s Apple ID to download an app can be an annoying problem. This may happen if you bought someone’s iPhone and they had signed in using their own Apple ID. Or maybe they forgot to sign out and downloaded the app using your own Apple ID. In any case, it isn’t safe to download an app using someone else Apple ID. If you’re curious, follow the steps below to safely download an app on their iPhone.
The first step is to delete the app that you downloaded under the previous owner’s Apple ID. If you can’t find it, you can try to delete it and redownload it using your own Apple ID. However, you must remember that apps that were downloaded with a different Apple ID cannot be synced. Therefore, you must remove the app from your iPhone and re-download it using your own Apple ID.
If you’re unsure whether you’re downloading a program using someone else’s Apple ID, you may be tempted to do so. However, before you do so, be sure to sign out of the other Apple ID. If you’re using someone else’s Apple ID to download an app, you’ll be asked for their Apple ID password before the app is even loaded.
First, you need to make sure to use a strong password on the Apple ID. The password must include a combination of letters and numbers. You should also make sure that the security question is a challenging one to guess. Finally, make sure to never share the Apple ID with anyone. If someone does manage to get your Apple ID, they can use it to access the app, data, and subscriptions on your iPhone or iPad.
