Working great

Bubble Buster Too ,

New changes are awful!

Why would you remove user defined folders from the main screen? I can’t find or see anything useful. Now the main menu is just as bad as the program schedule. Can’t you just give the people what they want instead of what your vision of a user experience is!

Hawk McDuck ,

Are you kidding?

I have had a lifetime Plex Pass for years and my servers are available to family and friends. I manage my Plex servers through a password protected admin account and I am the only one who knows the admin password. The users log in to Plex with the general Plex password associated with my email address, known to all.

Today one of my users, an experienced computer user, downloaded the Plex app and was flabbergasted to learn that when she logged into Plex with the general Plex password she had instant access to the system admin account and could add or delete anything on the system! YIKES!!!

Who designed this? Who tested this? What were they thinking?
