What are the security risks associated with leaving bluetooth on all the time on a Pixel phone updated to Android 10?
In this question, I am NOT focusing on the risks associated with someone intercepting my conversation using a bluetooth headset as an example.
Rather, I am focused on risks of getting malware similar to the bluetooth worm from a few years ago, which didn't require any pairing to spread.
My understanding was that Android phones are only discoverable when you click the "Pair new device" option from the Bluetooth menu but not sure if malware can spread even if Bluetooth is not discoverable.
I understand that it is ideal to switch bluetooth off but am trying to understand the risk involved with leaving it on.
