Yes to your point.

But every time I read the phrase "setting some security data/passwords to the default value" I am feeling uneasy. The notion of 'default passwords' is scary and a knob to restore default passwords even more so. Perhaps the text should say instead 'removing security credentials and restoring default security settings'.
