How to Prevent Bluejacking

How to Prevent Bluejacking. Presently, bluejacking doesn't provide the sender with personal data. Your device remains safe from any data modification. What bluejacking creates relates more to annoyance and the uncertainty of the sender's identity and immediate location. By design, Bluetooth's technology allows sending wireless information 30 feet or more. Devices that have this technology include mobile telephones, personal digital assistants and computers. There's no software to prevent bluejacking and only a few solutions.

Prevent bluejacking by turning your Bluetooth device off in certain public areas. Locations include shopping centers, coffee houses, movie theaters, eateries, bars and clubs, public transportation vehicles, phone and electronic stores.


Set the Bluetooth device to hidden, invisible or non-discoverable mode from the menu. This prevents the sender from seeing your device. Check your manufacturer's manual for disabling procedure. The phone maintains functionality in other modes.


Ignore bluejacking messages by refusing or deleting them. The messages vary but the typical messages come from an admirer, a jokester or someone sending a business card. Consider bluejacking the same way you think about spam.
