New to PR4100, seems like all my data is visible to WD.com

Just got my PR4100, upon setup I am finding out that the device is wholly controlled by and monitored by : files.mycloud.com/home.php

Even to move files from one folder to another I need to be logged onto mycloud., which means WD’s MyCloud server has total access to my device at home.

Is there any way to eliminate this dependency and manage our PR4100 without corporate intervention from WD.com ?

I don’t want use WD’s MyCloud as a file explorer to manage my files and folders. Any ideas and thoughts.

No reply from WD, which is concerning.

This is an important question in light of GDPR legislation:

  1. Are personal account contents visible/accessible to Western Digital?
  2. Are personal account contents stored anywhere other than on the User’s own physical server?

And I would also like to know how to add 2-factor authentication to my MyCloud login (which is becoming the norm for services that have a real concern for customer privacy)?

Thank you.
