I have not figured out how to limit each user to see only his/her folder, but since it does not bother me much I just use it as-is.

You have to have the Plex App installed on your main computer, a paid subscription to Plex (I purchased the Lifetime subscription rather than a yearly subscription), the Plex App on your iPhone or iPad (Free), and a special Plex directory on the WD MyCloud Home NAS where your media files are stored. Then you give the Plex app on your main computer access to that directory. All that can be configured from within the Plex app on your main computer. You will use data when listening/watching your files on LTE. see less By using the Plex App, which is available for iOS devices, Windows and Mac computers, I am able to listen to my music and watch my stored movies anywhere in the world on my iPhone and iPad where there is an internet connection.

Answer:
Not fully. I'm considering returning it because it is not possible to access iTunes playlists on the drive from Sonos. It only brings over Artist, Album, and Song categories, no Playlists. Which is pretty useless when you have a library of thousands of files.
