Windows 10 will share your Wi-Fi key with your friends' friends
Tell a pal your password ... and their FB mates can log in too


Business-wise "With every laptop running Windows 10 in the business radiating access, the security risk is significant. A second issue is that by giving Wi-Fi Sense access to your Facebook contacts, you are giving Microsoft a list of your Facebook friends, as well as your wireless passwords."

Looks like a huge security and privacy risk - this article is worth a careful read: http://www.theregist...10_wi_fi_sense/
