If you followed the instructions and still can’t get your new Bluetooth device to connect to your Windows laptop, then there might be a bigger issue at hand. The latest June 11, 2019 update for Windows 10 intentionally prevents some Bluetooth devices from connecting to a PC. Microsoft warned about the issue in a security statement on its support site, “You may experience issues pairing, connecting or using certain Bluetooth devices after installing security updates released June 11, 2019. These security updates address a security vulnerability by intentionally preventing connections from Windows to unsecure Bluetooth devices.”MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

The only solution Microsoft offered for those experiencing connectivity issues after installing the latest version of Windows is to contact the manufacturer of their Bluetooth device and see if a patch exists. If it doesn’t, you might be best off buying a more secure Bluetooth device altogether.To determine if your Bluetooth device is affected, access the Event Log and look for the error message, “Your Bluetooth device attempted to establish a debug connection.  The Windows Bluetooth stack does not allow debug connection while it is not in the debug mode.” Microsoft says that any device using “well-known keys” for encryption could be affected, including security fobs. This vulnerability appears to have first been discovered on Android device, and patched by Google earlier this month. Microsoft has recently fallen into an unfortunate pattern of releasing updates that do more harm than good. In this case, the software giant is getting out in front of a potential security vulnerability so you can keep your PC protected, even if that means throwing your Bluetooth devices in the trash.  How to Rename Bluetooth Devices in Windows 10 Author Bio Phillip Tracy, center_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeVikings: Free Online GameIf you’re over 40 – this game is a must!Vikings: Free Online GameUndoKelley Blue Book5 Mid-engine Corvettes That Weren’tKelley Blue BookUndoGrepolis – Free Online GameGamers Around the World Have Been Waiting for this GameGrepolis – Free Online GameUndoCNN International for ANAWhy Tennis Pundits Are Tipping This WomanCNN International for ANAUndoVerizon WirelessThis new phone will blow your mind.Verizon WirelessUndoTODAYPolice Identify Girl Licking Ice Cream Tub In Viral VideoTODAYUndoAdvertisement Phillip Tracy,last_img
