Bluetooth allows for simple wireless connection between Bluetooth capable devices. Many Bluetooth devices include a passkey by default, which is a method of securing the device and preventing others from connecting to it. If your Bluetooth device is only going to be used in a secure location, some increased convenience can be gained by not requiring a passkey when connecting to a computer.


Step 1

Press the connection button on your Bluetooth device so the device is discoverable. If you are having difficulty, consult your product's documentation.
