your question is very vague.
What I mean is can hackers get into my phone if file sharing is enabled. My router does have a firewall and uPnP is disable so outside connections to my phone should not happen, but not sure really.
Here is the scenario, my smartphone is full of media files and I want to play those media files on my tablet via DLNA. I could copy the file(s) over to the tablet, but I rather stream it to my tablet instead.
Anyway, If I do enable file sharing, it is only temporary and not intended to be on full time.
