    Windows 10 Security Question


    A friend sent me this, I have a hard time believing MS would do such a thing.
    Is it true ??

    ..."Krebs on Security has posted a new item.

    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!"...

    Thanks,

    It's accurate information. If you don't disable it Microsoft takes your WiFi password and stores it on their servers and will share it to your contacts.

    Any info on how I disable it ? I don't think MS will be very clear about it.

    Thanks
