Giving old devices away. Any risk of reactivation?

I want to give my old Moto X 1st gen to my cousin to play with as a Wifi device. After I factory reset the device, and walked through the initial setup, the phone keeps receiving an “Activate phone” prompt. Is there any risk that this can be activated just by following the prompts with that notification?


The user can reactivate the phone but to activate it on your account would need your account credentials. They could create a new account, and activate the phone there, if they chose.

If your primary concern is activation on your account, unless they have the email/pw for your account, it isn’t possible.

Awesome, that’s even better. I plan to give it to them, and it might turn into a new phone for them. Another RW member in the making.

Thank you for the info!
