Here are some of the issues that should be taken care of while using Bluetooth in your system:
- Security settings
- Beware of hackers
- Transfer of virus
Bluetooth technology might become insecure if not properly authenticated. Many such devices have short numeric PIN numbers instead of secure passwords. If someone discovers your device, he or she might transfer unsolicited messages to your device causing you to be charged extra fees. Unless you are actively using the device, disable it to prevent unauthorized people from gaining access to it.
Beware of hackers
The worst thing about using this technology on your computer is that the online attackerz can access or corrupt your confidential data. To prevent this, use Bluetooth in 'hidden mode.' This prevents other devices from recognizing your device. You can pair your system to the device you need to transfer files with. Do not leave your Bluetooth device turned on at public places or where there is a large crowd. This is because you might not be aware of people waiting to get a chance to hack your device. So always turn off the device soon after use.
Virus attack is yet another issue arising while using Bluetooth. Viruses or other malicious codes might take advantage of Bluetooth technology to infect other devices. Your data might be corrupt, compromised, stolen or lost. Take advantage of the features your Bluetooth device offers like authentication and encryption. Examine your security settings and choose options that precisely meet your needs without putting you at increased risk. Another way of avoiding a virus attack is to ensure that the device your system is being paired with is free from malwares or other infectious files.
