I have just purchased a linkstation duo - there are three of us in the company but only two people will be using it. As it is plugged in to the wifi for two to share we need to put a password ***** it so the other person cannot see it - or is there another way around it.
Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

You can create security Groups so that access can be retricted by also using shared folders

To do this, please review the manual on my link below and go to page 32

This will step you through how to secure content for users, so that you can specify which users can see and edit the folders on the device.

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

yes, thats the instructions I gave Linda.

On Page 32 of the manual I gave you see how to apply security to folders so that they can only be viewed if the meet the security requirements.

This was the manual I gave
