ReadyNASOS 6.5.0 Beta: ReadyCLOUD usage with NETGEAR accounts

 To get the latest ReadyNAS OS 6.5.0 beta, visit the 6.5.0 beta thread.

Overview of Changes

One of the most significant improvements applied in the new version of ReadyCLOUD server is shifting towards using NETGEAR accounts. The new accounts space has replaced the old ReadyCLOUD accounts used on ReadyCLOUD before. The main advantage of NETGEAR accounts is that the user is able to use his NETGEAR account to sign in at any NETGEAR service (for example Arlo, my.netgear.com and others).

A NETGEAR account on ReadyCLOUD allows users to access their devices through desktop apps, mobile apps, and the portal, as well as share access with other users, including sending links of individual files and folders to the public.

Beta testing is conducted through the staging ReadyCLOUD server located by HTTP address: http://readycloud-test3.netgear.com

Beta is over, thanks for playing.
