Windows 10 “WiFi Sense” automatically leaks your wifi password to strangers



Windows 10 “WiFi Sense” automatically leaks your wifi password to strangers


Even if you personally disable it on your own computer, anyone else connecting to your network (example: non-technical friend) will leak your password to all of _their_ facebook friends.The only way to opt out of this "feature" is to change the name of your SSID to include _optout at the end -- or force EVERY SINGLE PERSON connecting to your network to disable the feature on their PC before connecting.
There is no other way to opt out.
