Please disable port forwards and upnp on uour router immediately, exposing the NAS to WAN has cost a LOT of people files/money this year by malware infections

never ever ever expose your NAS to WAN

By setting up a VPN on your router. WireGuard on a FritzBox is set up in 2 mins.

depends on your unknown router

btw..hackers love noobs..they expose their NAS and do not have backups...means millions of bucks for them (not kidding)

I totally understand that.
So whats the advantage of nas if I can’t reach it securely from outside my network?

A NAS is a network attached storage, you use it as storage in your network.

If you want easy accessible storage from on the go, you want cloud storage (dropbox,onedrive,etc)

QNAP sadly advertised them for a while as "private cloud" but has backpaddled this now (after all these disasters)
