Mycloud Home shutdown

Is it safe to turn off my cloud home devices when they are not in use?

You can shut it down. In the mobile app go to settings > Select the device and then at the bottom is the shut down button.

Thanks so much for this info!

I was swindled into buying a MCH to replace a failing MY Cloud device, figuring from the name it was at least as good as the old one. Wrong. I use it only as local backup storage, and never planned to access it over the Internet, so hadn’t even installed the mobile app until I read this.

I can’t believe WD markets this dumb thing without even a locally accessible dashboard under the previously good My Cloud name.
