Can my neighbors monitor my data? They are also connected to the same power network.

Most recently modified:

Whether or not your neighbors can receive the data signal from your Powerline network depends on the power network in your building. Electricity meters and long wire lengths can strongly reduce the signal. In order to be sure, we recommend that you encrypt your own network (also known as pairing) with the help of the encryption button on the adapters or the devolo cockpit software.
To do this, press the encryption button on an adapter. Then press the encryption button on the second adapter within 2 minutes. If you have more than two adapters in your network, repeat this process for all adapters. As a result, the adapters will generate a random password and exchange it with each other.
