    apple music family plan hack??

    I have an Apple Music account 'family' setup with four members .. One of the members ( my granddaughter) was reported to have ordered a $24.99 movie from I-tunes which of course was charged to my credit card as I am the parent organizer . She swears up and down why would she order a $24.99 movie at 11:59 pm on a school night when she is sleeping? , plus the movie is 'Maleficent' which not only has she seen a number of times but it is free on Netflicks ., Plus her brand new 7 day old Mac Air Notebook should not be infected with any malware, ( is apple even prone to Malware? ) . so Question is: Would the malware or hack or virus be associated through her gmail account? or maybe all of my I-tunes accounts with me as organizer but she was singled out? Apple did give me a credit when I reported this to them.. so I am not upset ., BUT want to nip this in the bud now.. For the time being not knowing what to do I have removed my granddaughter from the family sharing plan,, which is not fair to her .. but promised her I would figure this out and this post is the the first of my endeavors .. any advice or help ??

    It sounds like it may be time to change your password(s) to Apple Music / iTunes and any associated e-mail accounts.

    Depending on how good Apple support is, you might be able to get them to find out the IP address of whoever ordered the movie. If it isn't yours, then a hack took place. If it is yours, then any hack would have had to go through one of your devices.
