    The strong security built in to the Action tec USB Bluetooth Adapter protects your data from intruders by using native 40- and 128-bit WEP encryption. When used in conjunction with Windows Network Properties, security can be set to 64- and 128- WEP encryption. Added security is provided by allowing the user to set trust levels for remote and local users, as well as password protection to really make your Personal Area Network secure!
