My good friend Tommy Jordon an IT expert posted a note today on his FaceBook Page about a new “feature” in Windows 10 that will share your encrypted secure wifi data/passwords with all of your contact so that when they come to visit they will have access to your system.

Pretty kewl feature right?  NOT.  At least not for me.

Here he is an article that will give you the info to “opt out” of these and another google “feature”.

Gotta love opt outs, if you can find 'em.   ::)

Yep, and it send it to their servers and stores it.  That way they now have access also.  No Windows 10 here.
