Once you are done with loading data in it you can follow the steps below to connect your Smartphone or tablet to the drive. And through WD MyCloud App you can stream the content.

    From the next screen you can choose name of drive and add a password on the same. This will help you if you want to lock the drive with password. The drive is now configured. You can see a few options on the screen which you can select if you want or just refresh the browser. You can then see the main page of this hard drive from where you can modify the settings.
