I just set up my new 3 TB Mycloud drive and i am pretty much brand new to the world of NAS storage. It is user friendly but I do have a few questions I was hoping a more experienced user could answer.
I understand that from phones and tablets, you need to download the app to view/upload/download files. The app is password protected. However, when I open up any of my computers on the same network, I notice the My Cloud drive is accessible to anyone. I have someone living with us who uses our wifi. They also have a laptop and I am assuming that they have access to all my files on the My Cloud hard drive. Although this person is trustworthy, I don’t want just anyone going through my stuff. Is there a way to set up a password to access the My Cloud drive on the same network?
I have uploaded a lot of FLAC audio files. I try to access these from my iPhone but it asks me to use an app that can play these files. I would like to use VOX, which is an app I downloaded that is specifically designed to play lossless files. Despite having VOX downloaded, the WD app doesn’t recognize this as an app that will play these files (although it does do this). I had to download VLC player which works fine but I really would like to use VOX. Is there any way I can have the FLAC files directed to play on the VOX app?
