[Tools] MIUI Bluetooth Discovery App

Hello forum,
I have to admit that I am not too interested in taking part in this community,
that is why I don't have any posts.
But since I know that many of you (myself included) don't want their device to be seen by strangers when
bluetooth is activated, I took the challenge to write an app which stops bluetooth discovery.
It has only the required bluetooth permissions but I understand if you are skeptical.
If nobody wants to use it, I still did my share :)

You can use Shortcutter to replace the standard Bluetooth quicksettings tile.

Bluetooth_Stopper-v1.3.1.apk (2.34 MB, Downloads: 253)

EDIT: I have found Bluetooth Visibility Fix - this APP is not from me but can run as a background service to change bluetooth discovery fully automatically without the user having to do anything :)

Would you please describe how to use it?
Is root required?

Turn on bluetooth as normally (settings or toggle).
Launch app to make device non discoverable.
Kill (and how) app to be rediscoverable.
Turn off as normally (settings or toggle)

I am still confused about the "Shortcutter" use ...

- Root is not required
- The application turns on bluetooth without making the device visible to others.
- If bluetooth is already on, it will be turned off.

  Shortcutter can be used to make a custom tile in the quick settings, so you can launch the app like you would normally toggle bt.

App helps but doesnt automatically disconnect visibility every time phone reboot or disconnect/connect bluetooth again. Solution will be come back the switch like all Androids (except MIUI).
