Have you happened to notice that you can’t delete the QuickConnect package from Synology Package Center? If, for one reason or another, you are not interested in the package and you want to have nothing to do with QuickConnect because you are solely using DDNS, today I will teach you how to permanently delete it from your NAS. Remember, even if you delete the QuickConnect package, if you change your mind, you can always easily reinstall it with just one click directly from Synology’s Package Center. What is QuickConnect? QuickConnect allows client applications to connect to your Synology NAS via the Internet without setting up port forwarding rules. It can also work with Synology-developed packages, such as File Station, Surveillance Station, Synology Drive, Synology Photos, and mobile applications.
Note: If you are already using QuickConnect, I recommend you don’t uninstall this package. If you uninstall it, QuickConnect will stop working immediately and all the services that depend on him. But, if you don’t want to use QuickConnect at all and other services, you can uninstall the QuickConnect package.
⚠️Warning: It is NOT recommended to uninstall QuickConnect, even if you can do it, even if I am showing you how to do it. Know that, if you do uninstall QuickConnect, then you will lose the connection to your Synology Account, Synology Drive, Synology Photos, Synology Application Service, Synology File Station etc. Synology has made the Synology Account dependent on the QuickConnect package.
