Name of NAS Being Shown on Login Screen on Mobile (& Other Giveaways)

Unread post by jpalm » Thu Jan 05, 2017 1:23 am

I've modified all the items under Theme > Login Style in order to change from the default and sort of "Mask" what this login screen is (I.e., not make it a dead giveaway that it's a Synology NAS - it's easy little layer of anonymity.)

Accessing the NAS' login via a desktop web browser, I see my changes. However, accessing the NAS' login via a mobile browser, above the username field it lists the NAS' official name. How can this be resolved?

Additionally, I've removed the DSM logo from the page, however the Fav icon (fav ico) is still the blue "DSM" icon -- how can that be removed?

Additionally, there's the page description in the code that gives away that it's a NAS:

<meta name="description" content="DiskStation provides a full-featured network attached storage (NAS) solution to help you manage, backup and share data among Windows, Mac and Linux easily." />

Can that be removed?

I'm interesting in this as well? Did you manage to get anything?
DiskStation DS716+II is great hardware which runs a pretty buggy but beautiful software.

Unfortunately, no. This reminds me... I'll probably submit an official ticket to Support. Maybe if you do it, too, they'll raise the issue internally.

This really is a terrible design. I don't know what scenario anyone with a NAS would want metadata like this on an internet facing device. It doesn't provide any functionality to the end user -- it's just a security risk.
