Managing Bluetooth Devices

Managing Bluetooth Devices

As of v7.0.0 you have more control over Bluetooth devices through AccessPatrols Device Restrictions. You have more granularity to be able to decide on more indepth blocking ability as Bluetooth can encompass a large range of device types.

Here you can see you now have 3 options for Bluetooth control.

  1. Full Access – Allows access to all Bluetooth devices on the client PC.
  2. Allow Audio Only – This will only allow you to connect devices for audio only. Some examples would be Bluetooth headsets, or earphones. Microphones will not work. You cannot do any bluetooth file transferring.
  3. No Access – Fully blocks access to all Bluetooth devices
