- [Voiceover] In this section, we're going to talk about…Wi-Fi Sense in Windows 10.…Wi-Fi Sense is a new feature in Windows 10…that allows us to share our…Wi-Fi connection with our contacts.…It is off by default,…but I'm gonna show you how to turn it on.…When one of our contacts connects through Wi-Fi Sense…they will be given an encrypted version of the Wi-Fi key.…Therefore the end user doesn't know what the Wi-Fi key is.…They only receive an encrypted version…and it would be very difficult for them to un-encrypt it.…
All in all this is more secure…than giving out your Wi-Fi key to someone.…If you just write down your Wi-Fi key…and give it to someone,…you never know if they give it to someone else…and also if you ever change your mind…and want to prevent them from accessing your network…you would have to change your Wi-Fi key…which can be a lot of work.…With Wi-Fi Sense, they only have an encrypted version…of the key so it would be very difficult for them to…give that key to someone else…and if you ever want to stop them…
