    windows 10, be very aware that often your home wifi password gets shared among your contacts in outlook and skype by default during install. Google for more info, it is encrypted but its stored at microsoft for when they visit you so they can use your wifi.

    So is this dependent on your contacts having Windows devices also, or could they be any type of device as in iPad, Android tablet, etc.?

    Wi-Fi sense is on by default (so you can receive), but you must OPT-IN your network, so don't panic just yet. Are Technica has a very good write up on this topic as how it is scaremonger-bait.
