Bluetooth devices are everywhere around us. Many modern devices broadcast a lot of information via Bluetooth all the time. In order to prevent tracking, devices can hide their device identities by using randomized addresses, which is supposed to prevent the risk of being trackable. We found a way to track different devices that supposedly prevent tracking, and published our findings at a large conference on privacy earlier this year. I will give you an overview of this work and tell you how to reduce your risk of being trackable via Bluetooth.
