Hi Ross, shared users must have a Netro account to access.

Hi, I added a user with their own Netro account as above and they have successfully logged in to it. Do they have to go through the wifi setup with the controller as I did when I initially set it up (ie HOST mode etc) or should they be able to 'see' the controller on the network and link to it? If it's the latter, my partner can't find it through her app (or even her wifi list).

Hi Petro,

Shared user does not need to go through the wifi setup with the controller. Please let your partner register a Netro account first. Please let us know if it works.
