    Have an HTC one M7, running android 5.0.2. Occasionally I get a pop up from Bluetooth service saying phone is visible to other devices. Pop up goes away, but typically pops up again with a different port number. This happens at random times and when I'm not doing anything associated with Bluetooth. Have I been hacked?

    Yes, I have bluetooth active such that my phone will interface with my car when I'm driving. This seems to work fine, but occassionally, I get this warning or infobox popping up that seems rather ominous. Maybe not so much, but it just seems uncomfortable. Here's a screen shot of what I see:

    See this guide, and see if you can turn off the Bluetooth FTP Server option: HTC One max User Guide

    Good find! Unfortunately, I don't have an "Advanced" option under my Bluetooth settings. I looked at the HTC One m7 user guide and didn't not find any information about FTP file transfer settings.

    What do you see in the Bluetooth menu? Also, do you have any 3rd party apps installed that deal with Bluetooth file transfer?

    I only see Scan, Rename this device, and Show received files. No Advanced option that I can find anywhere. I don't recall installing any 3rd party file transfer apps, but I do see Bluetooth File Transfer app installed in my list - who knew? I've just gone into the settings for that app and found an option to disable the FTP service to start automatically. We'll see if that stops it.

    In a very round-about way, you have (hopefully) led me down the right path to resolve this. Thanks!
