Share a BloomPUB via Wi-Fi (Firewall Permissions)

In Bloom, when you Publish your book to BloomPUB, there are three available publishing options:

  • Share over Wi-Fi to a device
  • Save BloomPUB File to your computer
  • Send over USB Cable to a device

The first option allows you to share your BloomPUB to an Android device which has Bloom Reader installed on it.

When you do this action for the very first time, the “Firewall” on your computer will initially block the action.

For example, Windows Defender Firewall will show the following alert:

To allow Bloom to share books over Wi-Fi to devices (phones or tablets), you need to click the “Allow access” button.

You will need to do this once for each new version of Bloom you install.
