Protecting Bluetooth connections
Using Bluetooth wireless technology, you can open wireless connections between a Bluetooth enabled BlackBerry smartphone and other Bluetooth devices that are within a 10 m range (for example, a hands-free car kit or wireless headset).
Your smartphone creates a Bluetooth profile, which specifies how applications on your smartphone and on other Bluetooth devices connect and communicate.
- You can turn off the Bluetooth wireless technology for your smartphone.
- You can specify whether to encrypt data sent to and from your smartphone over a Bluetooth connection.
- You must request a pairing with another Bluetooth device. You might also need to use a passkey to complete the pairing.
- Your smartphone prompts you each time a Bluetooth device tries to connect to your smartphone.
