From the control panel screen, open the Synology Account tab by clicking on "Synology Account" under "Services".
If you have a Synology account already created, you can use it to sign in here. Or simply create a new Synology account.
Once your account has been linked, your email address will be displayed, and you'll see the “Sign Out” button.
In your Synology control panel, the external access feature is located in the Connectivity section.
- Click the checkmark for "Enable QuickConnect"
- Enter your unique QuickConnect ID. This should be a unique ID but something you'll be able to remember and type easily. *Click "Apply" at the bottom-right corner of the window.
Once you create your new ID, the system will take a few moments to verify it and set it up. Then you'll be able to use your QuickConnect ID to sign in to mobile services like Synology Photos, as well as your Synology NAS desktop, securely!
