Connect a website to a Bluetooth or USB device

Chrome lets you connect a website to your Bluetooth and USB devices. For example, if you have a Bluetooth-enabled heart monitor, you can let a website connect to it. Then, the page can record and show information about the monitor.

When to give access to your device

Only give device access to a trusted site. If you pair a website with your device, the site gets all the information on the device and can even reprogram it. For USB devices, you can choose your default permission setting on your computer.
  1. Open Chrome "".
  2. At the top right, click More More and then Settings.
  3. Click Privacy and security and then Site Settings and then USB devices.
  4. Select the option you want as your default setting.
