Just set my new Nexus up and it connected to my sky wifi modem (WPA PSK) without any password input. I can surf the net, updates work, google calender works etc. I disconnected from sky and connected to my tplink wifi router (WPA/WPA2 PSK) in the lounge, again full connection with no password required. Does this mean I have Hot spots wherever I use my Nexus if it connects without passwords?

Was that the first network you connected to?

If you have used an andoid device to connect to the wifi on your google account then the passwords have been harvested, stored on your account and downloaded to the NExus for use

Its a "Feature"

No, same here, not sure how long its been in operation, seen it mentioned on several forums over the past few days,

My Nexus had my home and work network details in it as soon as I used the Google account that I used on a Galaxy S3 I was testing a few weeks ago,

Well it does ask if you want to back up when you started the other android device. Mentions wifi passwords specifically

That feature has been around ages!
