Can other SHAREit users connect to my device and start sharing files without my approval?

How can I get the latest SHAREit updates?
SHAREit will automatically check for the latest updates.

I have SHAREit running, but can’t others to connect with. Why?
Make sure:
  • You both have SHAREit launched and running on your devices
  • You have selected different roles, that is, one of you is a sender, and the other is a receiver.
  • Both devices have their wireless radios turned on.

NOTE: Some devices with wireless cards operating on 802.11a/b/g (using a 2.4 GHz radio) may not be able to find others using the SHAREit SoftAP (which creates a 5GHz hotspot). This is a common issue that can be resolved on the receiver side by going to:
  • Control Panel / Device Manager / Network Adapter
  • Next click on the wireless card, and go to: Properties / Advanced / Wireless mode selection.
  • Then select a mode without 802.11a

How can users submit feedback?
In the Options section of the Windows application, there is a link to submit 'Feedback'. The phone app also has this option. Please note that we cannot respond to all the feedback we receive.

How to resolve the conflict between SHAREit and Access Connections?
You have installed the Access Connections program on your computer and created one or more Best Available Network profiles. If the wireless adapter is not placed at the top of the network adapter list in the profile settings, SHAREit will not work correctly. SHAREit will detect the conflict and prompt you to change the profile settings as follows:
  • Launch Access Connections, and switch to the "Advanced" mode.
  • Click the “Location Profiles” tab, and select the profile prompted by SHAREit. Then click “Edit”.
  • On the window that is displayed, select the wireless adapter in the network adapter list and click the “Higher” button to move the wireless adapter to the top.
  • Click “OK” to save the changes.
  • If the conflict involves multiple profiles, repeat step 2 to step 4 to change the settings of the remaining involved profiles.
