To secure the network it is recommended that you change the Network Password, as it is used as a key for the 128bit AES encryption.  The default Network Password on many devices, including the Powerline Sockets, is set to HomePlugAV. This means that any devices with this Network Password, on the same electrical circuit, will automatically join together.  Changing the Network Password secures the network against other devices joining and seeing information on that network.
