Selling Amazon Echo Dot

Got one that's surplus and never opened. Do I need to open it to deregister it from my account or anything before selling or giving away?

When you buy it, it defaults to linking to your account. You have to opt out and select 'this will be a gift'.

Interested to know this.

Unless you tell Amazon otherwise (assuming it was bought from Amazon) then you account is automatically registered to the device.

Are you sure about that? Why would Amazon automatically register an Echo device to your account without you actually turning it on, what if you bought one as a gift for someone?

Yes I'm sure. They do it with all their devices. If it's a gift for someone, like I said, you can opt out of the option for the device to be registered.

They are sure. Amazon register to the account that orders it and defaults to the delivery address for location services. This all only applies if bought from them.

Wow! I never knew that, it's quite sneaky of them isn't it. It seems rather unnecessary of them to do that.
