Is a factory reset required before activating a used phone on a different account?

I will activate my new Moto G4. I will give my old Moto E2 to my wife, who has a RW acct (she has an old Moto G). Does she need to do a factory reset before activating the E2 on her acct?

I recommend she factory reset the E2 and then activate it as a replacement for her G1. After the factory reset take some time to update all of the native apps.

The factory reset is recommended in most cases, but it is not required.

If you have data, photos, apps or anything on the phone that you do not want to be deleted, you can give it to your wife without doing the factory reset. I am assuming that you trust your wife.
