After using the 40 sec reset as part of solving an earlier now solved issue, I am re-issuing access to all users. As part of the user profile the admin can set a user password for each user. During the process of changing the default setting of “Off” to “On” a dialog box opens where the password for the user can be set.
A note states: “Changing this password won’t affect your MyCloud.com account.”
I wondered in the past what the function of that password would be if not for logging into the MyCloud.com account? I recall I set up passwords years ago for all users and played around setting the password selection back to “off”, but it did not appear to have any effect whatsoever whether a password was set or not (at least not in the application we were using My Cloud for).
I looked in the manual (which does not say much about it other than that it can be set) and I searched this website where I could not fid anything on this password either.
Can anyone well me what the function of this password is?
Thanks for the clarification.
