You probably have a few Bluetooth devices at home. It could be just a headset, a smartwatch or a home theater. In most cases, you might have already paired them with your phone and don’t need any more devices to connect with it.
If that’s the case, then you can actually block Bluetooth pairing requests so that you won’t have to be disturbed when in public and someone just decided to pair their devices with your phone for some reason.
Estimate Cost : 0
Time Needed : 3 minutes
Blocking pairing requests won’t have an impact to the devices you’ve already paired with your phone. They will still be able to connect to it automatically when in range. What this feature does is block new pairing requests from unknown devices.
Here’s how it’s done:
Swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
This will pull up the App Drawer and view the apps that are currently installed or enabled on your phone.
Find and tap Settings.
This will open up the Settings app that allows you to change some settings on your device.
It’s the first option and it will bring you to the connection settings screen where you can manage almost all wireless services in your Galaxy Z Flip 4.
This will open the Bluetooth settings page.
Tap the More options icon at the top-right corner of the screen.
A small window will pop up with more options.
You will be brought to another screen.
Find and tap Block pairing requests.
You will then be brought to the screen where you can manage all the blocked Bluetooth devices on your device.
To allow pairing requests from a device, tap the minus sign beside it.
Once it’s removed from the block list, it will be able to request to pair with your phone. Then it’s all up to you if you want to pair with it or not.

But as far as managing or blocking Bluetooth requests is concerned, that’s how it’s done.
