Bluetooth connection is never secure?

Asked by XOIIO (18251points) January 18th, 2011

Using the bluetooth on my laptop to recieve a file from my ipod or a mac at school, I try to alllow the connection permanently, but it always says it isn’t secure. How can I force it to always accept files?

You can’t.. Your laptop does this as a defence mechanism. If it wasn’t the case that you have to approve files being sent, then that would mean that other people could get files from your device (Laptop) aswell. So you basically answered your own question already.. That it’s not secure.
