Bluetooth .... can anyone connect to my adapter?

  Mr. Chips 18:11 29 Dec 2004

I have a 100 metre range Belkin Bluetooth USB adapter.
Does this mean that anyone within range can access (anything of mine) via my adapter?

If so, how will I know that they are?

Also, is it a problem? .... 'cos it seems so to me with my low level of knowledge on this subject.
Should I remove the UBS 'dongle' when I am not usning it?

Anything else I should do / be worried about?

It seems like a minefield to me!
