How to be a BlueJacker?

Today me and my friends were just sitting in the bus returning home from college and suddenly one of them told me to switch on the Bluetooth. As soon as I did I received a message from "Bluetooth" which said "Hi"

I soon recognized that my friend had "BlueJacked" me.

I think you now understand how it works, So now what is Bluejacking anyway?
Well all I can say is "Surprising People", ya that's true! When you Bluejack people they are usually surprised thinking to themselves "What the heck? Where did i get this message from?"

Technically Bluejacking is the way you can send messages via Bluetooth, Not possible? Well yes it is(that's why we call it Bluejacking! Duh!)

Still a skeptic are we? Well I'll show you how you can do this on your own. But promise me not to get on people's nerves while doing so! And I don't take any responsibility for any physical damage done to your body by the person whom you BlueJacked!

Now as you have obeyed me, now get your bluetooth enabled phone and switch it on. (Don't worry i cant bluejack you from the computer :D)

Go to contacts and select the option to create a new contact, Now in the name field type the message that you want to send to the victim.

Eg: Hi Buddy, do you know that you are BlueJacked?
or something scary Like I CAN SEE YOU!!!

Now save it. Since your Bluetooth is ON, have your friend beside you switch on his own bluetooth. Now send the contact that you created to your friend via bluetooth. Now as soon as he accepts it he'll see a message from Bluetooth and the content will be the message that you sent.

Your friend has officially been Bluejacked! and now you can proudly call yourself a bluejacker. You can do this on a large scale if you are in a shopping mall many people tend to leave their Bluetooth ON.

For this work you either have to be paired with the device you want to send or the victim must accept it. Naive users tend to accept anything you send, so give it a try.

There are some software's available by which you can do this directly. But I wont talk about them here.

Whether this technique does not require a PIN when making a connection? but without the software does not seem to be work. btw this trick can hurt someone. good topic Jammi.

No this trick wont hurt since we are just sending messages. If we would be sending files then there would be a chance of a virus being sent!

This technique needs a PIN, People usually don't care where the message is coming from so they just accept. We can do this with paired devices without PIN
