D-Link, a global leader in connectivity for home and business, has just provided free, no-fee cloud storage to thousands of D-Link 11AC Wireless Router owners. The mydlink SharePort app lets users plug any USB storage device into the router’s USB port for instant and personal cloud space.
The free mydlink SharePort app is compatible with iOS and Android devices, so smartphones and tablets everywhere can access a private cloud. Even though there are such online services with accompanying apps (Dropbox, Box, Google, etc.), people still have a concern about the safety and privacy of data.
This new app from D-Link provides a cloud space that is much more secure, in the sense that your information is at home instead of some server somewhere in the world.
The app gives streaming access to videos, music, and photos, without requiring any laptop or PC whatsoever. The connected USB drive can be as simple as a flash drive or something more robust as a high-capacity portable HDD.
“Combined with D-Link’s award-winning 11AC routers with next-generation Wi-Fi speeds, the mydlink SharePort app offers an easy way to view and share content, creating a private and personal cloud that instantly adds storage to your mobile device, giving you more options to control what information you put on your personal cloud versus public cloud,” said Daniel Kelley, vice president of marketing, D-Link Systems, Inc.
Not every D-Link router is compatible with the new app. You’re in luck if you own a D-Link: Wireless AC1750 Router (DIR-868L), Wireless AC1200 Router (DIR-860L), Wireless AC1200 Router (DIR-850L), or Wireless AC1000 Router (DIR-820L). If not? Well, if your current router is showing some signs of age, maybe you’re due for an upgrade.
