A colleague wants to see something on your screen, but you're in a different room.
A friend from another country has a problem with your device, and you need help quickly and easily.
You work in a large company, looking for a way to deploy software to all devices.
There are Remote Desktop for these and many other purposes. It allows you to access another computer anywhere in the world via the Internet. Ideally, it should work on all platforms: from an Android phone to a Linux computer, from Windows to a Mac.
AnyDesk offers one of the simplest remote access solutions. Don't believe us? Try it for yourself! Here's a quick guide to getting remote access to another computer over the Internet using AnyDesk.
First: AnyDesk is free for private use. So if a family member needs help setting up the computer, you can help him from home without paying a penny. In addition, you don't have to register for anything and it takes up almost no space on your computer. Just download a 3 MB file and that's it!
Everyone you want to connect to must also download AnyDesk. Just say how easy it is and you'll be done in a moment. And that was all! You can now start your first session.
Open the AnyDesk app and get started. The number shown on the left is your personal ID. This number can be used by people to access your device, and you will need this number from the person you want to connect to. Enter the ID of the remote device in the search box on the right. Remember: Never give access to your device to someone you don't know, and watch out for online couriers !
What if you're at home but want unattended access to a work computer in the office where no one can accept a meeting request? Look in the security settings: you can set a password and two-factor authentication for unattended access there. This way, the session does not have to be received manually from the remote workplace.
How else can you choose who you want to connect to? When you open the AnyDesk splash screen, potential contacts and their online status are displayed as follows:
