If Someone Has My Apple ID, Can They See My Texts?

If someone knows my Apple ID, will they be able to snoop on my text messages? Also, do texts between an iPhone and an Android get uploaded, or only texts between iPhones? And is there a way to see if someone else is logged into my Apple ID or iCloud?

If someone has access to your Apple ID and password, they may potentially be able to see your iMessages and text messages. iMessages are encrypted end-to-end and are only accessible by the sender and receiver using their own devices. However, if someone gains access to your Apple ID and password, they could potentially sign in to your account on another device, such as an iPad or Mac, and view your messages.

If you suspect that someone else might have unauthorized access to your Apple ID, you can follow the steps below to check who has signed to your account recently:

  • On an iPhone or iPad: Go to Settings > [Your Name] > iCloud > Devices. Here, you can see a list of devices that are currently signed in to your iCloud account.
  • On a Mac: Go to System Preferences > Apple ID > iCloud. Click on Manage to see the list of devices currently signed in to your iCloud account.

When you notice any unfamiliar devices or activity on your account, it is time to change your password and enable two-factor authentication to enhance its security.

Text messages sent between an iPhone and an Android device are standard SMS/MMS messages and are not encrypted. By default, these messages are not included in iCloud backups. Therefore, it is important to export your messages and back them up in another place. Let EaseUS MobiMover help you.
