You can't really see a list of devices but you can verify the number:

  1. Open iTunes.
  2. If you’re not signed in, sign in with your Apple ID.
  3. From the menu bar at the top of your computer screen or at the top of the iTunes window, choose Account > View My Account.
  4. Enter your password, then press the Return or Enter key on your keyboard, or click View Account.
  5. On the Account Information page:

    In the Apple ID Summary section, next to Computer Authorizations, you'll see the number of computers that you've authorized. You won't see the names of those computers.

If you desire, you can click "Deauthorize all". Then re-authorize only those devices you wish to use with the account.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
