Protecting Bluetooth connections

Using Bluetooth technology, you can connect your BlackBerry PlayBook tablet to other Bluetooth devices that are within a 10 m range (for example, a hands-free car kit or wireless headset).

Your tablet includes the following security measures:
  • By default, Bluetooth technology is turned off.
  • You must request to pair with a Bluetooth enabled device. When you pair with a Bluetooth enabled device, you might need to use a passkey to complete the pairing.
  • By default, the discoverable option on your tablet is turned off so that your tablet isn't visible to other Bluetooth enabled devices. To help protect your tablet against unauthorized access, you can make it discoverable for 2 minutes only.
