Windows 10: Turning off Password Protected Sharing
Turning off Password Protected Sharing
Have never been able to figure out the correct "Network Credentials" and password to enter to allow network access from one PC to the other. So I turned off "password protected sharing (PPS)" on my desktop and laptop and now I can access either PC.
I've seen posts that advise to never turn off PPS for security reasons. My question is this:
I created a folder on my C: drives named "SharedFolder" in both my laptop and desktop. I shared those folders with "Everyone" permission with full control. The "SharedFolder" is the only thing that is shared on both computers. Turned PPS off on both PCs.
With PPS turned off but with only one folder shared on each PC, won't this prevent a hacker from accessing anything else on my PCs? Is my method flawed?
(Am running Win10 on both PCs.)
