Wi-Fi Sense password sharing removed from Windows 10
Microsoft removes the ability to share Wi-Fi networks with contacts
With the Anniversary update in July Microsoft is removing the password sharing feature from Wi-Fi Sense for Windows 10. Wi-Fi Sense debuted on Windows Phone and then made its way to Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10. It allows you to connect to suggested open hotspots and networks shared by your contacts. Microsoft is removing only the part that shares passwords between contacts and automatically connects to shared networks.
Microsoft considers the WiFi Sense password sharing as a feature with ‘low-demand’ that is not worth future investment.
The company has just rolled out a new test build of Windows 10 for PC to Insiders on the Fast Ring and this build doesn’t have password sharing in the Wi-Fi Sense. The official Anniversary update is expected for PC and Phone in late July.
