The tracking permission setting is displayed at the first startup. This time, I tapped 'Request not to track App'.
Next, you will be asked for permission to send notifications, so tap 'Allow'.

Go back to the EcoFlow app and tap Next again.
Then, RIVER Plus and iPhone can be directly connected wirelessly. You can also remotely monitor and operate by tapping 'Use without Internet' in this state, but in this state it will not be possible to connect to the Internet from your iPhone while connected to RIVER Plus. There is no problem in this state when the internet environment is not set up outdoors, but this time we will use it indoors where the internet environment is set up, so we will continue to set up the internet and let RIVER Plus participate in the network deployed indoors.
