Bluetooth security has always been a mess and even the specification itself has had egregious bugs that almost all devices were and often are still vulnerable to: you can force 8bit symmetric keys if you like: https://knobattack.com

I would never trust any wireless keyboard or mouse on any even marginally important computer. Bluetooth security is a broken mess, and taken together with the mess most bluetooth functionality is (e.g. perpetually broken, laggy, stuttering, forgetful, lofi audio profiles) bluetooth needs to die asap.
