Wemo Mini Smart Plug Security

So my mini smart plug seems discoverable and controllable by anyone with the wemo application on my network? ... it this correct? 

This is greatly concerning since I'd like to have a login credential and share that with Alexa / Homekit and the wife's phone only.

Ideally, yes.  But, do you give out your wifi password to everyone?  If you ae like me and several people have it, then
set up a 2nd wifi and don't give this out.  This is what I did, and works like a champ.

Na I don't give it out. Just disappointed a major company was this bad about security. :/ I ended up keeping the smartplug but I'm probably going to hold off on buying any additional Wemos. Second wifi is an option just a PIA that its even needed. Thats not a realistic answer to a major corp's oversight about security IMO.
