    I have an Android TV. I haven't had any issues with it until recently. Someone in one of the neighboring apartments is trying to pair with the tv. According to the company there is no way to turn the Bluetooth off. (Yay!) Is there an app or anyway I can stop this?

    I just renamed my tv to F*** Off Galaxy S10+ for now and they haven't tried reconnecting yet.

    I'm just looking for a better solution.

    I am not a technical expert but I can suggest you remove paired accessories after use.

    Rename it "FBI Monitoring Van #9". That throws some people off.

    Also, as carlsonzaire said, if they do manage to pair, unpair at once.

    And look at Bluetooth firewalls. If you can install one of them, you can set it so only the devices you list can connect (a whitelist). (In your case, just don't list any.)
