Step 1: Change the password of the account.
Once you've received the accounts details, the first step is changing the password of the account.
To do this, simply head over to here and change the password to anything you'd like. Once this step is done, you can move onto the next step.

Step 2: Removing Security Information.
Once you've changed the password of the account, head over here and remove and/or add as much security information as you'd like.
The information given here, is the details you'd need to login to, to reset the password. You'll also get notifications from log-in attempts here.
Adding your phone number or email will give you a 4 digit code on whatever you chose to add, so remember to check for that to completely verify the information.

Step 3: Changing/Removing the aliases.
The alias is what's used to sign into your Xbox account, but also Microsoft account.
To do so, head over to this page and add a new email - It can be a completely fresh email or an existing email of yours, it does not matter.
Once you've done this, remember to make the new alias the primary one, and then remove the old one. 

Step 4: Changing the billing information.
To change/remove the billing information on the account, head over to this page and add your billing information.
If there's already existing billing information added to the account, simply just replace it with yours.

Step 5: Removing the devices.
To remove the devices, simply head over to this page and remove all devices, if there are any added of course.

Step 6: Removing the consoles.
To remove the consoles added to the account, simply head over to this page and check the "Require Profile Download" button.

Step 7: Adding more security/Adding 2 step verification (optional)
This step of the process is optional, but always recommended since it adds more security to your account.
To do this, head over to the advanced security section tab.
If you want to add 2 step verification to your account, head over to this page and go through the entire process.
Remember; above the button called "Close Account" you can remove all trusted devices. Press that.

Step 1: Change the password.
This step is kind of self-explanatory - To do this, go to the settings of your Kik account, then press on "Your Account" and change the password. 

Step 2: Changing the email.
Changing the email of the account is in the same place as where you change the password.
In the "Your Account" tab, there's a different option called "Email".
Click that option and change the email.

Step 3: Confirming your email.
Once you've added your email to your new KIK account, you'll receive an email to the given Email.
Make sure to go ahead and confirm that email.

Step 1: Changing the password.
To change the password, head over to Skype website and sign in to your account.
After you've done that, head over to the "Edit Profile" tab and hit the "Change Password" button.
This will redirect you to a site where you can change your password.

Step 2: Changing/Removing Account Aliases.
Just like with Xbox accounts, you'll need to remove and add your own alias.
Sign in to your Skype account on the website like before, and go to the "Your Info" tab.
After you've done that, head over to the "Manage how you sign in to Microsoft" and hit the "Add Email" button.
From there, you'll be redirected to the same site as with Xbox accounts, and you'll be able to remove any current aliases and add your own.

Step 3: Change the billing information.
Stay logged into the Microsoft account, and head over to the "Payment & Billing" tab.
If there's nothing on that page, you're good to just add your own information.
If there's any current information, simply replace the information with your own.

Step 4: Contact Details.
Go back to the starting site, and scroll down till you see the "Contact Details" section.
Once you're there, add an email and make it your primary email.
If there's any other emails, remember to remove those.

Step 1: Changing the password.
Once you've logged into your Twitter account, head over to the settings tab and go to "Password".
From there, simply change your Password.

Step 2: Changing the Email.
Stay on the settings tab, and head over to the "Settings and Privacy".
From there, you should see an email tab. Change the email to your account and enter your password.

Step 3: Removing Apps.
Head over to the "Apps" section and remove permissions from everything there, if there's anything.

Step 4: Optional Security Options.
In the "Account" section, there's a few additional options which will improve the security of the account.
These are completely optional, but always recommended to add, since it's options such as phone verification.
It's also the ability to hide your email from attempts of resetting the password.

Step 1: Changing the Email. 
Sign in to the Instagram Application or on the Instagram Website, then head over to the "Edit Profile".
From here just simply change your email.

Step 2: Getting rid of email links:
Once you've changed your email once, do it an additional 2 more times to get rid of email links.

Step 3: Changing the password & Removing Facebook.
This has to be done from the mobile application, so if you're not already logged, go to the app and login.
Once you've logged in, go to settings and "Linked Accounts".
Click on Facebook. To see that the Facebook account you've added is linked, there will be a little blue check mark.
Once you've done this, you can move on.

Step 4: Adding 2 step verification.
To add 2 step verification to your account, head over to the "Phone Number" tab under "Private Information".
Type in a number that can receive messages - For your own security; do NOT add your own cellphone number.
This is in case of the account being pulled back. 

Step 5: Removing Unauthorized Applications.
For this step, simply head over to the Instagram website and click "Edit Profile".
Once you're on that tab, click on the "Unauthorized Applications" and remove permissions from any application on there.

Step 1: Changing the information linked.
Once you're signed in to the account on the PSN website, head over to "Account" and then "Account details".
Once you're there, go ahead and change the information.
When you change the email, be sure to change the email two times and verifying both of the emails. 

Step 2: Changing the Password.
Head over to the "Security" tab and change the password.
Whilst you're at it, remember to change the answers for the security questions. 

Step 3: Adding a card and adding funds.
Head over to the "Wallet" tab and add funds.
Always make sure to add your card and funds. 

Step 4: Adding 2 Step Verification.
To add to step verification, simply head over to this page and follow it through.
Remember to keep a backup of the codes you're given.

Step 5: Adding OG Email.
If you've received the OG Email when you bought the account, head over to the PSN website and use it to sign up on a Japanese account.
This will decrease the chances of the account possibly being pulled back.
This will make it so, if anyone tries to get the account back, the OG Email is registered on a Japanese account.

Step 6: Removing current devices.
Go to the "Media and Devices" tab and remove every device that's added, if there are any.

Step 1: Changing the password.
Once you've logged into your account, head over to the settings tab in the right corner, and go to "Password" on the "My Account" tab.

Step 2: Verify Email Address.
Head over to the "My Account" page and enter your email. Remember to check your email afterwards and verify it.

Step 3: Adding 2 Step Verification.
Just like any of the other accounts, this step is optional but recommended.
Once you've turned on 2 Step Verification on your account, any login attempts will need a code sent to your device.
Go to the "My Account" page and go down till you see "Login Verification". Click on that.

- Please keep in mind, making an account 100% secure is impossible -

Commonsense really, but nevertheless I guess it would be helpful to some.

You may want to make it clear that this does not 100% secure the account as most platforms easily reverse account info changes with little proof.

A lot of people would probably think changing the email & password for an Insta would secure it, but yeah, it should be commonsense. 

But yeah, of course some platforms you can't secure 100%
