Not long after Windows 10 was released late last month, it received a different kind of publicity than Microsoft wanted — concerns about everything from its privacy practices to fears about a new feature called Wi-Fi Sense to unhappiness with the way updates are delivered, and more. In all the sound and fury, one thing was lost — common sense. Some of these concerns had a basis in fact; others were based on rumors that blossomed into complete myths. So I’ve decided to try to get to the bottom of things and have taken an in-depth look at the four most common concerns about Windows 10.

Concern #1: Wi-Fi Sense will share all your Wi-Fi passwords.
Truth: Wi-Fi Sense will not share your passwords.

Concern #2: Windows 10 updates are automatically installed on your computer — and that’s a bad thing.
Truth: Automatically accepting Windows 10 updates isn’t a bad thing. And there are plenty of workarounds.

Concern #3: Microsoft’s use of peer-to-peer networking for Windows updates will slow down your network connection.
Truth: Windows 10 does use peer-to-peer networking to distribute updates. But it can be turned off — and a tweak could actually decrease your bandwidth use.

Concern #4: Windows 10 is a privacy nightmare.
Truth: You can protect yourself by changing the defaults.
