Turn on the Bluetooth®
Since the system comes integrated with the Bluetooth® device the user need not provide external hardware, the Bluetooth® device can be switched on via the software or Windows® operating system. If you find it difficult to operate and control Bluetooth® from the system directly then download software from the Internet before operating it. There is a lot of software that is available online by program developers to help run the Bluetooth® device.
Establish a secure network
Once Bluetooth® is switched on; the computer should not be left exposed so that unauthorized users can access the network. The system must be protected with a password or should be made invisible to outside users. In this case the system outside will not be allowed to access the network without entering the password, a password protected Bluetooth® environment would keep out hackers who try to place malware and other spyware into the system.
Once the system is done transmitting the needed data via the Bluetooth® connection it must be switched off. The Bluetooth® network should not be left open and exposed to the network so that other users can enter or try to hack into it. The Bluetooth® device can be switched off in the same manner it was turned on through the software or the operating System.
