"Blue Jacking" How-To

So, now we know that information can be transferred to devices within a small area. What can be done? Well, blue jacking is when you create a message as a name within your phone book. The phone book entry could contain a message such as 'Hello, I like your Shoes'. next you then search for any other Bluetooth devices. If you find a device, then you can send your phone book contact containing your message to this device anonymously. Follow the steps below for your basic blue jacking guide:
  • Create a new phonebook contact containing your message 'I like your Shoes'.

  • Find a busy location (on a Bus, Train, Cafe Bar). The busier, the more likely you are to find a Bluetooth enabled device.

  • Select your new contact name and send via Bluetooth.

  • Your device (mobile) will now search for any other enabled Bluetooth devices within a 30 foot range. Your phone will then list all devices found. Sometimes the devices can contain information relating to the model.

  • Now select one of the listed devices for your contact info to be sent to.
