MyQ garage door opener techology question

Some garage door openers can now be controlled from a smartphone using an app that supports "MyQ" technology. This sounds great but I wonder whether it would best be avoided in a rental property. If a door opener with MyQ were installed and a tenant uses a smartphone to take advantage of it, what happens when that tenant moves out and a new tenant moves in? How in the former tenant prevented from having continued control of the door opener?

Handle this the same as re-keying the door locks and remotes.

Right now most MyQ openers do not include the wireless bridge. Even with that they also are programmed to join a specific wireless network (SSID) to connect to. When tenant leaves the wireless normally goes with them.

So this is basically the same if they programmed their car (Homelink) to open the door. When a tenant leaves you need to reset the opener and delete the Internet MyQ account. Re-pair all remotes and start over. There are some instructions on Chamberlain/Liftmaster's site.
