Best move? Create a new email account and consider it like sending postcards in the mail. Once you know that anyone can read your email, then you know never to put anything you don't want others to know there.
My friend doesn't know much about IT and a family member set her up with a Windows Live account which gains her access to her hotmail account through her Nokia Lumia phone. She thinks this family member might be reading her emails by accessing her Windows Live account (due to coincidences which have involved him after sending certain emails)
Now, I have recently helped her change her hotmail password using her PC but after this she couldn't access her emails through her phone. This is when it all came to light.
I've tried to change her hotmail password on her phone but couldn't find it - I could only find a windows live ID and password. The password was setup by the 'family member' and is asterisked out so we don't know what it is.
My question is. Is it possible that the 'family member' can log onto her Windows Live account and read her emails, even if he doesn't know her hotmail password? Please help because its causing my friend some distress.
