If you use Bluetooth, protect yourself

Users of Bluetooth technology can protect themselves by following these tips: disable all Bluetooth functions when not in use; always install the latest updates for your device and Bluetooth software/firmware; your device should remain on the “hidden” setting and should not be “discoverable”; be cautious near open Wi-Fi hotspots if you are using Bluetooth in public. Your connection could be intercepted; only use Bluetooth on secured connections; and enable authentication and encryption if it is available for your device.
