  • Watch video walkthroughs of Pogoplug features in our brand new Videos section.
  • Talk with other Pogoplug users, share tips, tricks and hacks, and chat about Pogoplug (or whatever else) in our new User Forums.
  • Create a support ticket with our dedicated customer service team, who can provide solutions to your problems 24/7, in the Ask Support tab.

If you have any questions about the migration or suggestions how we can improve the Help Center, let us know in the Help Center Discussion forum thread.  We’re confident these changes will improve your Pogoplug experience. Enjoy!
