Bluetooth visibility

Hello,
I have a ZenFone6 with Android 10. I just realized I cannot control the bluetooth visibility of my phone. I noticed that my phone is only visible if I'm currently in the bluetooth page and the screen is on.
This is a problem for me, I often use an app which confirms my physical location by bluetooth visibility, and this is obviously not working now.
Does anyone know how to change this behavior? Is there a setting for this?
Best regards,
Tamás

System settings -> location -> wifi & bluetooth scanning -> enable bluetooth scanning

Hi Anders,
Thanks for the reply, but that's not it. (I have these options enabled btw). My problem is the other way around. A server application (from a server computer) wants to know if I'm physically really in the vicinity. My presence is confirmed when the server can discover my device's bluetooth id.

I attached a short video to demonstrate the problem (left is my computer screen, right is my phone. The phone is only ever discoverable when I'm in the bluetooth settings).
Best regards

Just pair your PC with your phone.

It's not my PC what should see my phone. I just used that, to demonstrate the problem.
