Default Can I use my ES3 without pairing with the phone app?

I posted another thread here detailing how I have been unable to pair my new (refurbished) ES3 kick scooter with the iPhone app, due to being prompted for a password which I do not know (I have a support request sent to Segway about this).

I assumed that I would not be able to use the scooter without first pairing it, but in searching this forum for a solution to my password issue, I see people saying you don't have to use the app in order to use the scooter. So am I correct that I can use it without ever having paired it with a phone? In order to try resetting the password, I pushed down on the accelerator paddle/lever and the brake paddle/lever and at the same time pressed the power button. I didn't feel any motion on the scooter when I pressed the accelerator, so I took that as a sign that it was inoperable without the password in the app, but just now remembered the fact that the power doesn't kick in unless you've first pushed with your foot a bit in order to get the scooter moving.

So *can* I use the scooter without ever having paired it with the phone app?

Yes, my scooter goes without pairing. Anyone can just hop on it and scoot away. Im wondering if there’s a default lock when paired even of the Bluetooth disconnects.
