Product Improvement Program?

Hi.

Two questions:

  1. Exactly what information is shared with WD when this is enabled on a WD My Cloud?
  2. Once enabled, how is it disabled? I don’t see any settings in the web UI.

Thanks.

Hello, 

This option will allow WD to improve future updates by collecting information such as the product serial number during a firmware upgrade.

To disable that option, I believe that you will need to run the setup again.

Thanks. Is it only the product serial number they are requesting? Or does it include other information? I would have no problem helping out if I knew exactly what (and was comfortable with) what information I was sharing. The message in the notifications is quite vague and gives in information on how to opt out.
