Windows 10 offers new designs and this informative article shares beneficial techniques to address early concerns that have surfaced with certain default settings.

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.
