Does Android keep a history of the files sent via Bluetooth? I didn't see anything like that in the user interface (there's a log of received files, but not sent ones), but maybe there's a hidden log file somewhere? I need to check past activity. Installing an app to start logging this now won't help me.

Go to settings and turn on bluetooth. Click menu button and you will see the option Show received files. Alternatively every files sent via bluetooth will be stored in a folder named bluetooth in storage (if the files are not moved).

  • Thanks, though I'm looking for the log of sent files, not received ones. I've updated my post to make it unambiguous.

  • Show received files will show both uploaded and downloaded Bluetooth file logs under two tabs. You can view it there. Commented Apr 17, 2014 at 15:55
  • What version of Android are you using? I'm using 4.2.2 and I don't see any tab.

There's a user interface that's providing the log/history of Bluetooth sharing.

To view the log you need to activate Bluetooth and send any file. After sending a notification appears and by clicking it you can view the logs.

  • Thanks. Unfortunately I've dismissed the notification at the time, and new notifications of this kind don't show previously sent files.
