Microsoft has removed WiFi Sense Password sharing feature from the latest Windows 10 build 14342.

WiFi Sense helps you to connect to more WiFi networks. You will be connected to open WiFi hotspots that WiFi Sense knows about. And if you share access to a WiFi network with your contacts, Skype contacts or FB friends, you’ll get connected to their WiFi networks using WiFi Sense.

Here is what Microsoft say over WiFi Sense Password Sharing feature removal :-

We have removed the WiFi Sense feature that allows you to share Wi-Fi networks with your contacts and to be automatically connected to networks shared by your contacts. The cost of updating the code to keep this feature working combined with low usage and low demand made this not worth further investment. Wi-Fi Sense, if enabled, will continue to get you connected to open Wi-Fi hotspots that it knows about through crowdsourcing.
