Windows 10 Wireless Flaw

User Rating:  / 0
PoorBest 

Starting today, Microsoft is offering most Windows 7 and Windows 8 users a free upgrade to the software giant's latest operating system -- Windows 10. But there's a very important security caveat that users should know about before transitioning to the new OS:

Unless you opt out, Windows 10 will by default share your Wi-Fi network password with any contacts you may have listed in Outlook and Skype -- and, with an opt-in, your Facebook friends!

This is a huge security flaw that Microsoft has intentionally added into Windows 10. But you must "Opt-Out" of it if you don't want your wireless password shared with EVERYONE you know.

Just thought you should know.
