Bluetooth Secured?

How secured is bluetooth? Normally i use my logitech vx mouse but it's been giving me trouble lately, So i switched to a dell bluetooth mouse. I was thinking of leaving my bluetooth on my laptop on so i don't need to turn it on and off everytime. And is there a program to control what bluetooth devices can connect. Thanks.

Normally if you bought an usb bluetooth dongle, the software installed from the CD furnished will permit you to control access connections of your peripherals and security settings, like "Widcomm" or "Bluesoleil" softwares.

I'm not quite sure on a built-in bluetooth how permissions access can be set properly. The laptop manufacturer must have is own drivers appart from the MS drivers that can help you. Go on their site if there's an App for you.
