6. It is recommended to set a password in the bot's advanced settings to protect your privacy and prevent others from operating the bot accidentally.
(1) Only the person who knows the password can operate the system.
(2) After a password is set, only those who know the password can operate the bot. You must enter the password when you first use the Bot.
(3) After setting the passcode, the bot mode/schedule details will not be checked unless the passcode is entered, even if the corresponding bot is displayed on nearby bots. No need to worry about privacy.
