 Microsoft has added a new feature to its Windows Phone OS. Wi-Fi Sense contains several dangerous features. Firstly, it connects automatically to all available Wi-Fi networks, even insecure ones without any user interaction. It shares some personal data with the hotspots such as e-mail and telephone number. an lastly it allows user to share passwords to known Wi-Fi networks with his/her Skype contacts, Facebook friends and Outlook.com contacts. That means that anyone of this group would have access to even private or company Wi-Fi networks.
