BT Guard is a security application that automatically switches your Bluetooth off, saving your phone from BT attacks and unwanted Bluetooth connection requests.
BT Guard is a security application that automatically switches your Bluetooth off. This saves your phone from Bluetooth attacks and unwanted Bluetooth connection requests. Switching Bluetooth off saves your battery life.

If you use Bluetooth on your mobile, then BT Guard application is created for you.

BT Guard secures your most vulnerable place in your mobile: the Bluetooth Connection. You define the time, after which your Bluetooth will be set to Off or On, Invisible. This saves your time for switching BT manually and secures your mobile.

When Bluetooth is off, your phone battery consumption will be reduced and the phone battery will last longer.

BT Guard is available in English, German, Russian and Ukrainian languages.

Who are the users of BT Guard?

BT Guard is used by the people who use their Bluetooth on mobile.

BT Guard is unbearable for:

People working at office: you can hardly believe how many BT devices are there in and around your office, so be protected from any intrusion!
Businessmen: in the business lounge somebody is searching with BT and may annoy you with connection requests.
Users who exchange files using BT: after transfer completion you will not remember about your BT. BT Guard will do it for you!
All Bluetooth Users
Even if you use Bluetooth not often, there is big probability that you forget to turn it off right after the file transfer. And here it goes: your mobile stays unprotected, visible for other Bluetooth devices. And your battery consumption is about two times higher.

BT Guard recommended settings

Settings of BT Guard depend much on the way you will be using the application.

Setting BT Guard is must be selected to ON as long as you would like to use the app.

Setting Change BT after defines when the BT will be changed. Here you should think how long usually the BT connection of yours lasts. If you use your mobile mostly for uploading the software or exchanging smaller files like photos � you may set this setting value from 1 to 5 minutes. But if you use BT every day in your car BT-Kit, you should set the value to 30 min and more � depending on how long your usage lasts. Or, alternatively, you may define to set your BT to invisible after just a few minutes, this will secure your mobile but not affect the existing BT connection.

Setting Set BT to defines if the BT should be set to Off or to Invisible mode. Turning BT off will save your battery, but you will not be able to use your Bluetooth connection. If you turn BT to Invisible, it will make your phone invisible for other BT devices and you will be not be subjected to BT attacks or requests. When invisible, you will be able to use your BT as usually, except of receiving files.

Setting Ask defines if you like to be asked about the BT change or not. If you do not wish, the setting can be set to Never and you will not be annoyed with confirmations. The application can also always ask you, this setting is recommended when you use BT very often and can not predict when visible Bluetooth will be needed. For the most users we recommend to use the value "When active". In this case you will be asked only if the active BT connection is identified. It means, you will not be interrupted by BT Guard when you are sending or receiving data via BT or using your BT-Hands free.
