My neighbors devices (their TV'S) show up under my Bluetooth settings as "Additional Devices" should I be concerned? I'm new to my Samsung S23 mobile phone and apprehensive about the aforementioned devices. Can my phone be compromised by these neighbors "Additional" devices under my Bluetooth settings? I'm not comfortable with seeing these devices listed on my phone.

Devices that you have paired will not be accessible by others (and vice versa). You are probably able to see other Wi-Fi networks as well. There's absolutely nothing to be concerned about. 🙂

Okay. I only have one device paired to my Bluetooth and I wasn't worried about that pairing being compromised. However seeing my neighbors devices listed, as you refer to as their WiFi networks being okay, and nothing to be concerned about put me at ease. That was a relief. With so much hacking going on I guess I kinda overreacted. Thank you so much for responding and easing my fears. Have a great evening!
