I’ve been taking a look at the Asus Router app for iOS and one of things it allows you to do is to bind your Google account (in my case) to my router, but I can’t seem to find any explanation as to what it does, does anyone have any info?

Some weeks back, I was curious so I played with it. From my observation, basically,
Benefit:
  • it allows you to managed multiple Routers / AiMesh Network (I managed my 2 daughters Family Networks)
Risks: I observed Binding arrangement, by default, automatically turns on WAN Access to the bonded Routers. That was not acceptable to me!
  • I manually, TURNOFF WAN Access via the respective Router's GUI
Nett: with that, I can benefit from using the Asus App to manage multiple AiMesh Router sites, but, only on Premise or over VPN (WireGuard, OpenVPN, IPSec, or Instant Guard)

Yes, I also noticed that WAN access was enabled along with the app, I also turned it off. Otherwise I’m still to work out the benefit of it, it doesn’t replace the standard router logIn or link It to a cloud account, so why have it.
