Wi-Fi Sense, but smarter Wi-Fi Sense is a tremendous addition to Windows Phone 8.1. It automatically logs you into public Wi-Fi hotspots (even agreeing to terms of service if configured properly), and lets you share secure network access with your contacts while keeping the actual password hidden from them. In a word, it’s great. And it’d be just as handy in Windows 9 laptops and tablets—along with some changes.

I’d like a smarter version with options based on one’s physical location. It’d be swell to have your machine automatically log into your personal account and show you leisure apps when connected to your home Wi-Fi; sign into your work login and elevate productivity software when you’re on your business network; and automatically activate a VPN on public networks.
