    I got an iphone 5 so I gave my 4s to my mother. This morning a notification came up on my phone saying "[mom's name's] iphone" is now receiving imessages at [my email address].

    I obviously do NOT want my mother seeing every imessage I get since I'm 24 years old. She looked in her imessage setting and doesn't see my email address anywhere, but I am still nervous.

    Is there ANY way I can go to some website and disable ALL imessage devices sort of like you can deactivate all itunes devices?

    Thanks for the help!

    I think your safest bet is doing the following:

    - disable and log out of iMessage on your mom's iPhone
    - change the password of your Apple ID that you use for iMessage
    - re-enable iMessage on your mom's iPhone with her account

    This way you should be safe. And you can test it: send an iMessage from yourself to your own email address, and check that it doesn't show up on her phone.
