The Bluetooth of my Xiaomi, Redmi, or Poco activates by itself: How to fix it

Hello friends! If you have problems with your Xiaomi phone constantly turning on Bluetooth without your request. We have some solutions that can help you. We understand how frustrating it can be for you to know that certain functions on your phone are being performed without your consent. Not to mention that keeping Bluetooth on is not always a good idea. That’s why in this post we’ll walk you through the process of solving this problem.

Possible reasons

To more accurately determine your location, some location apps or apps like Instagram and Snapchat use Bluetooth search. This is a simple feature that allows your phone to connect to nearby devices. At a time when you want to better calculate your current location. For example, file transfer apps like “ShareMe” or “Nearby Share” often use Bluetooth and location to work. In most cases, Bluetooth scanning is the reason why many people complain about Bluetooth being turned on without their consent. Fortunately, this can be easily resolved. It is even possible that your phone is doing this without your knowledge because Bluetooth simply turns on during such a scan and then turns off.

Likewise, whether you notice it or not, if you don’t want this feature to continue, all you need to do, then perform the following steps to cancel the Bluetooth search activation:

Check app permissions

In many cases, Bluetooth problems can start after installing a new app on your phone. So you should check the permissions granted to that app. If you are not sure which particular app may be causing the problem. The best thing to do is to access your phone’s general permissions. In the permissions section, you can decide how to deal with the problem. For example, if you think an app is suspicious, you can block its Bluetooth access. On the other hand, if you want apps to prompt you before changing the Bluetooth status, you can do so. You can also opt for a simpler option and limit it to all applications.

To enter the phone’s permissions manager and start this process, follow these steps:

First step

Go to Settings and go to the “Apps” section.
