WiFi what to look out for

Windows WiFi Sense gives you the option to share your network credentials with all the contacts you have in Outlook, Skype and Facebook.

Beware Phishing emails stating they are from Microsoft encouraging you to install Windows 10. These emails come with an attachment and look legitimate.
