How to leave a Family Sharing plan on an iPhone or iPad, in 2 different ways

  • It's easy to leave a Family Sharing plan on your iPhone or iPad. 
  • Family Sharing is used to share calendars, photos, and even subscriptions across family members' devices — but you may want to leave the group, especially if you have to change countries.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Family Sharing is used to share apps via iCloud across family members' devices. 

It's easy to join a Family Sharing group — and just as easy to remove your account when it comes time to leave.

While this feature is helpful for sharing purchases and subscriptions (such as Apple Music), you may eventually want to leave or set up a new group. It's also necessary to leave a group if you are moving and need to change your device's country settings to match your new residence.

Before leaving, keep in mind that you will immediately lose access to everything shared by your family — including photos, calendars, and more. You can regain access to these shared apps by rejoining the group (if the Organizer adds you back).

The steps to leave Family Sharing are the same whether you access the Settings app on your iPhone or your iPad. If your Apple ID's payment information is linked to your group's shared purchases, you can also remove your account online.

Here's how to do it.

Can I remove a Family Sharing child by deleting his account?

If you want to maintain the gMail address, you can use that as the Apple ID for the child.


Apple doesn't allow you to remove a child under the age of 13 from your Family Sharing (in the U.S., at least; the age is different in other countries). When you add a child that young to your Family Sharing group, they're there to stay until they turn 13.

If you started Family Sharing and added a child under 13, you can't remove them on your own. You have a few ways you can potentially get out of this situation:

Disband the family

You can disband the entire Family Sharing group and start again. When you create the new group, don't add the child under 13. If you and the child are the only people on your Family Sharing list, you need to transfer them before you can stop Family Sharing.

Transfer the child to another family

When you add a child under 13 to Family Sharing, you can't delete them, but you can transfer them to another Family Sharing group. To do that, the organizer of another Family Sharing group needs to invite the child to join their group. In this case, the child's Family Sharing account won't be deleted, but it won't be your responsibility any longer.

Call Apple

If transferring a child to another Family Sharing group isn't an option, call Apple. While the company doesn't give you a way to remove a child from Family Sharing, it has other tools that can help. Call 1-800-MY-APPLE and talk to someone who can provide support for iCloud.

Note: When you call Apple, make sure you have all of the relevant information handy. The customer service representative will need the email address for the account of the child you want to remove. You'll also need a device handy so that you can access your own Apple ID. Apple Support will walk you through the process of removing the child, though the official removal can take up to 7 days.

If you are the organizer of the En Familia group, you will not see the option to leave it. Instead you will find the option to stop sharing. Selecting this option will disband the family group. It is important to note that if you have family members who are under 13 years of age, you will need to transfer them to another family group before you can stop sharing.

And if you are under 13 years of age, you can be transferred to another Family Sharing group, as long as you are invited by its organizer and that the organizer of your current group authorizes it.

In addition to the above, you should consider some important information regarding Family sharing:

  • After leaving a family group, you can join or create a new one, but you can only change groups once a year.
  • Family members over 13 can leave a group at any time, and the group organizer can remove members over 13 at any time as well.
  • Children under the age of 13 cannot be removed from a family group, they can only be transferred to a different family group.
  • If the family organizer stops sharing or leaves the group, the family group is dissolved.

How to Stop Using Apple Family Sharing or Remove Other Family Members

With Apple’s Family Sharing, you can share access to Apple services and purchases with your family members. The feature also allows you to have a shared photo album and iCloud storage, and track and share each other’s locations.

If you’re the family organizer, removing members from your Family Sharing group or disbanding it is easy. Members of a Family Sharing group can also remove themselves; however, the process differs for family members under a certain age restriction.

What Happens When You Stop Family Sharing

Before you cut off yourself or anybody else from your family group, know that doing so will cut off that member’s access to shared Apple services and subscriptions. This includes iCloud storage plans, apps, subscriptions, and DRM-protected content.

DRM-protected content, or media bought from Apple Music and Apple TV and shared with you, will still remain on your device. However, you’ll need to purchase it to be able to open it.

Related: How to Share Your Purchased Movies From the Apple TV App With Your Family

Similarly, if you downloaded an app purchased by a family member, you’ll need to purchase it yourself to be able to use it. Even if you made an in-app purchase with the app, you'll have to buy the app to access the in-app purchase.

Removed family members won’t be able to share photo albums, reminders, or calendars with the family. If you’re a member, you’ll lose your Apple Cash Family account as well.

Related: Apple Family Sharing Explained: What You Need to Know and How to Use It

If you have a balance, it will transfer to the family organizer’s account. If you’re a family organizer, the accounts you set up for your family will automatically close. Any balance will be transferred to your account.

How to Disband Your Family Sharing Group

Only family organizers can disband a Family Sharing group. Disbanding a family group will automatically remove all members from the group at the same time. To do this from your iPhone or iPad:

  1. Head to Settings.
  2. Tap your name.
  3. Tap Family Sharing, then select your name.
  4. Choose to Stop Using Family Sharing.
Image Gallery (2 Images)



Alternatively, you can do this on your Mac.

  1. Go to System Preferences > Family Sharing.
  2. Go to your name on top of the list, then click Details.
  3. Click Stop Family Sharing.

However, you cannot disband your family group if you have a member under Apple's age restriction. We’ll discuss this in a bit.

How to Remove Yourself and Others as a Family Member

If you don't want to disband the entire group, removing yourself as a family member is pretty straightforward. On your iPhone or iPad:

  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap your name, then go to Family Sharing.
  3. Choose your name, then tap Stop Using Family Sharing.
Image Gallery (2 Images)



If you are on your Mac:

  1. Go to System Preferences > Family Sharing.
  2. Click your name, then choose Stop Family Sharing.

You can use the same process as above to remove other people from the Family Sharing group, too, if you are the family organizer. Just choose their names and choose Remove [Name] From Family.

However, if you’re a minor, Apple won’t allow you to remove yourself from the group. You’ll have to ask your family organizer to remove you.

The minor age varies by country or region. In the US, you can’t remove yourself if you’re under 13. Other countries may have upper age restrictions that range from 13 to 16.

How to Remove a Family Member Under an Age Restriction

If you’re in the US, you can’t remove a family member or have them remove themselves if they’re 13 and below. The only way to remove them from the family group is to transfer them to another family group or delete their Apple account.

How to Transfer Your Child to Another Family Group

To transfer your child to another group, the family organizer in the other group should initiate the transfer by inviting your child to their group. Once they’re done inviting, you should get a notification that says Family Transfer Request.

To find this on your iPhone or iPad, head to Settings and look for the notification Family Transfer Request immediately under your name. Tap it, then choose Transfer [Name].

Image Gallery (2 Images)



On a Mac, go to System Preferences > Apple ID. Click View Transfer Request, then click Accept.

How to Delete Your Child’s Apple Account

If you want to disband your group, but you don’t plan on transferring your child to another account, the only way to remove your child from the group is to delete their account.

To delete your child’s Apple ID account:

  1. Go to appleid.apple.com and ask your child to sign in to their account or sign in to your child’s Apple account yourself if you were the one who set it up.
  2. Scroll down to Data & Privacy > Manage Your Data & Privacy. You will be redirected to another window and asked to sign in again.
  3. Click Request to delete your account under Delete your account.
  4. Click Request consent.

Once you send your request, you’ll receive an email. To approve your child’s account deletion, please sign in with your Apple ID, which will lead to a new window. Then follow these steps:

  1. Scroll down, select a reason for account deletion, then choose Continue.
  2. Read the Deletion Terms & Conditions and tick the box once you finish reading them. Hit Continue.
  3. You will be given an access code for your child’s account. Save it or print it for future use with Apple Support. This is useful if you want to change your mind about removing the account. Make sure to save a copy of this, since the following window will ask you for it. Choose Continue.
  4. Enter the access code Apple just provided.
  5. Choose Delete account.
Image Gallery (4 Images)





You’ll receive an email notification stating that the account deletion is in process. Once your child’s account is permanently deleted, they will automatically be removed from your Family Sharing group.

Letting Go of Family Sharing

Family Sharing is a fantastic Apple feature that allows your family to get the most out of the Apple experience. Moreover, it enables parents to monitor their children’s activities, using Screen Time.

Removing members or disbanding a group is a breeze. However, it may take more effort if you have a minor in your family group. While it may take more steps than usual, the process is just as straightforward.

How to disable Apple family sharing or remove a family member

The Family Sharing feature on Apple devices can be great for families, but giving children access to shared content and purchases is not always a good idea. Luckily, you can disable the feature or remove specific family members from it.

Generally speaking, the feature enables users to share access to Apple devices and purchases with others, usually family members. This includes permissions to view a shared photo album and access data stored on the iCloud server. Equally useful for families is the fact that Family Sharing enables parents and children to share their location with other members.

For family organizers or the administrators of the Family Sharing feature, removing members only takes a few button presses. However, things get more difficult if you want to remove a member that is under the age of 13.

What happens when you exclude someone or yourself from Family Sharing?

iphone with family sharing

Keep in mind that removing yourself or another member from the family group will have immediate consequences. The removed members will be cut off from all access to shared Apple devices and subscriptions, including iCloud storage plans, paid apps, and media purchased by other users.

If you were using apps that were bought by the member that you have removed from the family group, you will have to purchase them personally to continue using them. In the case that you have made in-app purchases, these will be available to you only once you purchase the app using your Apple account.

When it comes to DRM-protected media, once the user has been removed from the group, the files will remain on all devices that had access to them. However, you will be unable to open them and view the content unless you purchase the media personally.

If the removed member was using Apple Cash Family and had a balance, all the funds will be transferred to the organizer of the group.

How to disable the Family Sharing feature?

Before moving forward, keep in mind that only Family Group organizers can disband the group and disable the feature. This having been said, disbanding the group will immediately remove all members from it and each user will only have access to the apps, subscriptions, and media files that he has paid for. Here’s how to do it:

Using an iPad or iPhone

family sharing on iphone
  1. Go to Settings
  2. Tap your account/name
  3. Select Family Sharing
  4. Tap on your name
  5. Press Stop Using Family Sharing

You can also use a Mac to disband the group:

  1. Go to System Preferences
  2. Click on Family Sharing
  3. Click the Details button next to your name
  4. Press Stop Family Sharing

If the group contains the account of a child that is under the age of 13, you will have to move him to another Family group before disbanding the current one.

How to remove yourself or a family member from the Family Sharing?

You can also remove specific members, including yourself, without disabling the overall functionality of the feature.

As before, you can either do this using an iPhone or a Mac.

For iPhone and iPad:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. Select your name
  3. Press Family Sharing
  4. Tap Stop Using Family Sharing

For Mac:

  1. Go to System Preferences
  2. Click on Family Sharing
  3. Click on the Details button next to your name
  4. Select Leave from Family Sharing

The same process applies to removing other people from the group. However, instead of choosing your name, you will have to select theirs. If you are unable to remove a specific member, it is because he may be subjected to the age restrictions imposed by the Apple user policy.

Take into consideration that this age restriction may vary from one country to the next. In the US, Apple will prevent you from removing members that are under 13.

Removing a user that’s 13 years old or under

iphone on table with kid in background

Although you cannot remove age-restricted members from family groups, there are ways to work around this limitation. In the US, you will either have to move the member to another Family Group or delete their Apple account altogether.

Transferring the account to another Family Sharing group

The transfer process is relatively simple, however, it can only be initiated by the Family Organizer or the group that the child will be transferred to. The organizer will have to invite the age-restricted member to the group. Once this happens, you will receive a notification informing you of a Family Transfer Request. Select Transfer and you’re done.

For iPhones and iPads, the confirmation menu is located in Settings, under Family Transfer Request.

If you want to use a Mac, then go to your System Preferences, select your Apple ID, and click on View TransferRequests. You will now be able to select Accept to finish the transfer.

Deleting an Apple account

The last method is to delete the age-restricted account. This process is a bit more complex and you should only do it if you’re certain that you won’t need the data or paid apps that are associated with that account. Once it is deleted, it’s gone forever.

To delete an age-restricted account you will have to do the following:

  1. Go to appleid.apple.com
  2. Sign into the age-restricted account
  3. Go to the Data & Privacy menu
  4. Press on Manage Your Data & Privacy
  5. Sign into your child’s account again
  6. Select Delete your account
  7. Press on Request to delete your account
  8. Choose Request Consent
  9. Go to your email inbox and open the email that you’ve just received from Apple

You will then be taken to a page that will enable you to delete the account. You will have to select a reason for the account deletion and read the Deletion Terms & Conditions. Once you’ve done this, you will be presented with a code that allows you to delete the account or recover it if you change your mind.

Once you print it or write it down, you will have to enter it in a field to authorize the deletion. Lastly, press Delete Account.

Disbanding the Family Sharing group

The Family Sharing feature is great for those who want to share media content, apps, and subscriptions. However, having the option to leave the group, remove members from it, or disband it entirely is always useful.

Stop using Family Sharing

As the family organizer, you can stop Family Sharing and disband the Family Sharing group by removing yourself from it. Afterward, each person who was in your family may be able to join or set up another family.

If your family includes children under 13 (age varies by country or region), you must first transfer them to a different Family Sharing group before you can stop Family Sharing.

If you stop Family Sharing, members keep purchases they initiated and paid for using the shared credit card, but immediately lose access to other things the family shares.

  • Other family members’ items no longer appear in the Purchased section of Music, the App Store, and Apple Books.

  • DRM-protected music, movies, TV shows, books, and apps originally purchased by one family member and downloaded by others can be used only by the original purchaser.

  • In-app purchases become unavailable if they were made using an app originally purchased by someone else. Former family members can regain access to their in-app purchases by purchasing the app.

  • The family members’ photos album, calendar, and reminder list are removed from all family devices.

  • Family members’ device locations no longer appear in the Find My app on Mac, on iCloud.com, or on iOS and iPadOS devices.
