Microsoft has decided to remove the WiFi Sense feature from all versions of Windows 10, including mobile devices and PCs.

The feature was pulled from the most recent preview build of Windows 10 for PCs; it will be pulled from phones, too. WiFi Sense allowed people to share their WiFi logins with social network connections, as well as connect to public WiFi networks with less hassle.

“The cost of updating the code to keep this feature working combined with low usage and low demand made this not worth further investment,” explained Microsoft.

Microsoft said people who leave WiFi Sense running on their phones will still be able to connect to open WiFi hotspots that are already in Microsoft’s shared database. Microsoft recently released a new preview build of Windows 10 for handsets.

Build 14332 mostly targets bugs and makes refinements to the user interface of select apps. The next preview build for phones will likely strip out WiFi Sense.
