    I bought a new Nokia 520 with Windows Phone 8.1. I linked it to my hotmail live account (Microsoft Account). I had to return the phone because it was faulty. They gave me a new one but my account was registered in the phone they gave me the first time. On my second phone i registered the same account and i changed the password so it could not be access from the original phone. To my surprise, the new phone never ask for the new password. I changed it from my pc, in my live hotmail account, and the phone just syncs up. How do i know the other phone isnt doing the same thing? I have a ton of photos, contacts on that account. How do i know its safe??

    You may be able to remove it as a listed device in the outlook.com website.
    Other than that, you're reliant on whoever you returned the phone to having decent procedures to protect your privacy.
