    In ios5 Icloud, my icloud account information includes my password in all the family's ipad, ipod and iphone.
    This means that if my son decides to use Storage on icloud without telling me, he could saturate the free 5gb in no time.
    How can I disable the automatic password and force him to ask me whenever he want to use icloud ?
    Thanks for your cooperation.

    As far as I know, there's no way to do that. The alternative is to set up a separate AppleID for your son, giving his device its own free 5GB. His device can use the family ID, while his iCloud account will use his own.

    Are you certain the two ID's ........ Apple ID and family ID are separate ?
    Thanks for your suggestion.

    I don't know your set-up, but I'm currently running separate IDs on mine. The iPad stays logged into my AppleID, while I use a different ID for iCloud on the same device.
