WiFi Sense

Hi! I updated to the new Windows 10 Enterprise build 9926. My laptop has HSPA+, 4G, 3G, Bluetooth, and WiFi. How did WiFi Sense get activated? How do I use it? Is it the same as Windows Phone? How do I turn this off?

Hi Nicholas,

Thank you for your reply.

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. These include:

  • Automatically connecting you to crowd sourced open Wi-Fi networks it knows about.
  • Accepting a Wi-Fi network's terms of use on your behalf and providing additional info for you to networks that require it.
  • Letting you exchange password-protected Wi-Fi network access with your contacts to give and get Internet access without seeing each other's Wi-Fi network passwords.

If you don't want to use Wi-Fi Sense, you can go to Settings > Wi-Fi > Wi-Fi Sense, and then turn off. Connect to Wi-Fi hotspots or Share Wi-Fi networks I select (or both of them if you want).

Let us know if you need any further assistance.
