Good morning, my question is, How does someone get information from my test messages. Not my message in its self. Detailed information in my phone number? Knowing what kind iPhone I have. Let’s say I set text message to iCloud to someone can they track me by my phone number.   Thank you in advance

I would need you to put your questions in clearer words so we can try and help you out here.

When I send someone text can they see what kind iPad I have. I go into Settings , General, About. . there it tells me about what I have. 

Can he do something about that information, figure out passwords 

How do I make my iPad secure.

No, they can’t. Device information is not sent with iMessage /SMS.

If you want to ask for detail then you would have to contact Apple and talked with a rep there as iMessage/iPad is a service/product of Apple https://www.apple.com/ca/privacy/features/

If you believe someone is stealing your private information without your consent and you “have” evidence that he/she did, you could report to police.

Anyway,I would suggest you check your icloud account to make sure you had 2 factor authentication and follow best pratice on password and secuirty. Also, make sure you don’t fall into some hacker tricks. They sometimes sent text and/or email pretending they were Apple and ask you to enter your information yourself. It is a common hack, though.

Is there Text Error? I received different text  from someone, they asked question, ( client ) I replied, then they replied saying its Text Error?

Well, if you saw strange texts from an unfamiliar number,  just ignore it. People can accidentally send message to stranger sometimes.
