Hi all, is anyone else having the same security issues with Bluetooth being constantly discoverable when the phone is set to not show phone visibility . I have a galaxy s2 so require Bluetooth to be turned on all the time. I never had a problem with my S7 edge as I could have the watch connected and no one would discover the Bluetooth connection. The other day I received a request to receive a picture in the supermarket which I didn't accept from an anonymous source. I've tried all the settings to reduce phone visibility and even wiped the connection settings but it still does it. Anyone else have this problem?
