Don’t want to link Ring account to Amazon

I have just bought a Ring doorbell and Chime. It is trying to force me to link my Ring account with my Amazon account. For privacy reasons, I don’t want to do this. I don’t own an Alexa or an Echo and have no plans to buy one. There appears to be no way of skipping the linking of accounts, so I feel that the product has been mis-sold as it did not warn me. I’m tempted to send it back and buy a different product. Can anyone suggest a way of bypassing this step?

Hi @user75270. Your Ring and Amazon accounts do not have to be linked. They can be linked and unlinked at any time by following the steps here. Is there a specific feature you’re trying to set up that is prompting this request in the Ring app? Feel free to share a screenshot.
