Hi @jyasskin ,

  actually our BLE mice and keyboards implement 2 services : HID over 
GATT and a proprietary one.

The former expose characteristics that will trigger device replying 
with "Insufficient Authentication" when characteristic is accessed 
without security level required by peripheral. Mice will require 
encryption, and keyboards will require encryption + pass-key entry.

We've seen issues at stack level on Chrome OS, when pairing from 
web-page was failing to share connection with OS, and leaving web-page
 was disconnecting device. It has been fixed. Now on Android we need 
apparently to create bond at software level..
