How to hide WD My Cloud of the network?


Wondering if its possible to hide the storage device from the network? As when I open up the device without logging in, it displays the folders within the drive but need credentials  to access. I would like to hide the drive completely to enter the address instead to gain access or hide all the folders.


Are you using a Windows or Apple computer?

Sorry for the delay in reply, should have mentioned what operating system I’m using!

I’m using Windows and Mac :) 

Onlly way I know how to do that would be to hand-edit the Samba configuration files and make the device non-browsable.

What’s the advantage of making it “hidden”?
