IoT devices uses default passwords

Is it technically possible to program the device such as the first time it's activated it generates a unique password? The user logs in from the PC through the browser, navigates to 192.168.1.1., clicks on 'generate password', takes note of said password, then reboots the device. Shurly these technological visionaries can come up with such a solution. After all, it took me four minutes to come up with the preceding solution.
