    Accessing my SB players remotely via mobile network ?

    Hello

    I'm probably being very dim here, but I discovered this week (having used SB's for 10 years !) that I can control my players via my phone's mobile network (not just with my home network).

    Accidently launched Squeeze Cntrl on my S9 in shop at work, and turned our kitchen Boom on (whilst the missus was home schooling the kids &#128516.

    Good to learn new things !

    Unless you have put a VPN connection into your home ... you are possibly open to attack by others.

    Oh dear.. is it straightforward to block this then (from my router settings page) ?

    Has this ability to access the players via phone app + mobile phone network been available for a long time ? Presumably MySB.com is involved somewhere ?

    Are you using LMS, or are you players connected to mysqueezebox.com?

    In this circumstance MySB.com only.

    In that case, ignore my comment.
    mysqueezebox.com is an internet service so being able to control your home players that are connected to it is normal.
