Allow users to block networks for backup
Updated over a week ago


As an administrator, you can allow inSync users to block specific networks from backing up data.

For example, allow inSync users toblock backups on data card, personal mobile hotspots, orMi-Fidevices when traveling to minimize the personal hotspot orMi-Fidata usage and costs.

❗ Important

If the user adds a specific network in the Blocked Networks list and uses the same network to connect the organization resources through VPN, it is inSync’s expected behavior to allow backup through the blocked network. To disable backups, while they are connected to VPN through a blocked network, contact Druva Support.

📝 Note

  • inSync users will be able to opt out of networks with subnet mask of 24 bit or more only.

  • This feature is available only to users who have inSync Client version 5.6 or above running on their devices.
