Sync - Device names

WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND

It would be nice to have a way to name devices.

HOW COULD IT BE DONE

Somewhere under “account and data” section on each device, add a new text field for device name. This gets synced so other devices can show it when looking at the sync status indicator.

REAL WORLD USE CASES

Looking at the sync status indicator (at least on Desktop) lists your devices if they’re connected, but there’s no human-friendly name for them, so if there’s a problem syncing with a particular device there’s no way to know which one it is.

RECOMMENDED ALTERNATIVES

In the meantime I could keep known device IDs in a note?

Hi @Legowerewolf, great idea! It would also be great to be able to kick potentially compromised nodes off your network (either deny sync or somehow wipe remotely). I’ll make a separate feature request for that :slight_smile:

Thanks for the request!

Human-readable device names are coming soon :slight_smile:

Kicking potentially compromised nodes off your network may take a bit longer :wink:
