Wi-Fi Sense is a feature of Windows 10
Wi-Fi Sense automatically connects you to nearby Wi-Fi networks, helping you save your cellular data for when you really need it and giving you more Internet connectivity options. Wi-Fi Sense can do a lot of things for you to get you connected to the Internet using Wi-Fi, so you don't have to do them on your own.
This nasty feature has serious legal implications for it will automatically connect your personal Wi-Fi network to anyone in your e-mail list using Hotmail, Skype, or Outlook, and even Facebook, making those friends questionable.
If any such person comes within range of your home Wi-Fi, they could secretly access your system from hundreds of yards away. The real problem with this is rather sinister. The government would no longer need a search warrant for your surrendered privacy; good luck finding a judge who will uphold the rights that exist only in your imagination.
I worry about the full Stalinistic powers this provides the government, as this will grant them access to hunt down anyone who dissents from their view. Suddenly, we all become the next Snowden since disagreeing with the government is now TREASON. Such powers are not necessary, and while Windows 10 supposedly allows you to opt-out, this setting is the default – they know what they are doing.
The vast majority of people do not understand computers and they will be surrendering all rights to Microsoft without understanding what they have done. Why is Microsoft acting in such a hostile manner towards human rights?
