Synology is one of the most popular creators of Network Attached Storage devices on the market today, and for great reason -- they're really good at what they do. They consistently make devices that stand the test of time and feature top-notch software that makes the process of running a home server as easy as eating a slice of pie.
Still, if this is your first time setting up a Synology NAS, you probably have a few questions, and the most pressing is probably “How do I log into the darned thing?”
Luckily, Synology has made it really easy to log in securely. You can either set up Synology QuickConnect, the absolute best method for securely signing in to your NAS dashboard, connect using the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your NAS, or follow this guide to log into your server via the Synology Assistant desktop app.
