Windows 10 Will Stop Sharing Your Wi-Fi Passwords Soon
Microsoft is removing part of its controversial Wi-Fi Sense feature from Windows 10. “We have removed the Wi-Fi Sense feature that allows you to share Wi-Fi networks with your contacts and to be automatically connected to networks shared by your contacts,” says Microsoft’s Gabe Aul. “The cost of updating the code to keep this feature working combined with low usage and low demand made this not worth further investment.”
Wi-Fi Sense was originally introduced on Windows Phone and then updated and included with Windows 10. It’s a feature that lets you automatically connect to open hotspots, and share your Wi-Fi passwords with contacts.
