Simply said: How do I turn off iCloud on my Mac?


On my Yosemite machine there is a panel in System Preferences (click the grey apple top left corner) On my system icloud is on the start of the 3rd row.

Click that.

You will be presented with a bunch of things that you can store in the cloud. iCloud Drive, Photos, Mail,...

Uncheck them all.

  • Thank you! This was the only answer that did not assume iCloud was ubiquitous and everyone knows about 'the iCloud services' and instead was just helpful. – Matt King Jan 3 '17 at 0:54
