How does Bluetooth work?
In today’s society, All modern computing devices are wireless by means of Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Bluetooth is a wireless protocol that uses wavelength to transmit information, allowing different Bluetooth-enabled devices to exchange data or files over short distances.
The RF transceiver Bluetooth-enabled devices, function in the unlicensed ISM band which is centered at 2.4GHz, which is also used by Wi-Fi networks and microwaves. The core system of Bluetooth technology is the fact that employs a frequency-hopping transceiver to help mitigate any interference or fading.
Bluetooth’s radio waves are different than that of traditional radio waves – they are constantly switching frequencies and only travel short distances (about 30 feet), and the distance may be reduced when obstacles, like a wall, are present.

How Secure is Bluetooth?
Any device that connects through a Bluetooth connection is generally safe and secure from hackers. Bluetooth constantly changes the frequencies of the wavelength consecutively and repeatedly – this is also known as frequency hopping. It ensures your Bluetooth devices can’t be hacked by the way of the signal.
How to use Bluetooth in Windows 10
- In order for your computer to interface with the Bluetooth device, both devices need to be in pairing mode. Accomplish this within the Bluetooth settings of each device.
- Open up Windows Settings and navigate to “Devices“, then select “Bluetooth” on the left pane.
- Enable Bluetooth (Make sure it’s switched to “On“). Your PC will begin to search for nearby devices.
- Select the device that you’re connecting to and select Pair.
Once you’ve clicked on Pair, your Windows 10 computer should take care of the rest – showing “Connected” under the device’s name. Another way of connecting is by using the shortcut – Windows key + A. This will bring up Quick actions, where you can connect to the device from the list.
