My exact thoughts. I live out in the burbs. About 5 of my neighbors might be able to get a signal on my wifi. I have a secure password. What could go wrong.

No never change it. If you change it, then all the devices will have to be changed to automatically connect to it.

Never. Not even when I was in a large apartment complex. Hackers and thieves don't care about a home network. If they are going to risk getting caught, its going to be trying to catch a big fish, like a retail network.

That really just causes more issues while not providing any additional security...

I run multi SSID, main 2 being Pluto and Pluto-Guest.
How will that info make me more of target, considering they are not hidden and are discoverable ?

Haven't changed the SSID and password in over ten years. I've gone through several wireless equipment and carried the same info to the new wireless router. Don't want to deal with reconfiging every wireless device. I'm not the paranoid type to worry about wireless security or people "wardriving" to get into my network.
