does the pairing request pop up when there are no BT devices nearby though? like is this popping up at work or at home? or in public? I'm pretty sure this popped up when this was detected while the device was scanning for Bluetooth devices nearby
as far as "block pairing requests" not working as designed, i would submit an error report on members app > + button > error report
As to the locale, this only happens at home. The Bluetooth firewall allows for a scan of addresses nearby and it shows up along with all those that I own. I've now gone through and clicked off all sorts of programs scanning options and it still pops up (e.g. SmartThings)
@Irreverentideas Go into BT settings and click "Scan" off. Already paired device will still connect but I "think" this is like not making your device discoverable and it should stop the pairing requests. The problem is that turning scan off does not stick and may turn back on for various reasons....try it.
