Securely access your computers from your Android device.
On each of your computers, set up remote access using the Chrome Remote Desktop app On your Android device, open the app and tap on any of your online computers to connect.
Chrome Remote Desktop allows users to remotely access another computer through Chrome browser or a Chromebook. Computers can be made available on an short-term basis for scenarios such as ad hoc remote support, or on a more long-term basis for remote access to your applications and files. All connections are fully secured.
Chrome Remote Desktop is fully cross-platform. Provide remote assistance to Windows, Mac and Linux users, or access your Windows (Windows 7 and above) and Mac (OS X Yosemite 10.10 and above) desktops at any time, all from the Chrome browser on virtually any device, including Chromebooks.
Chrome Remote Desktop is basic but solid. You have to install the extension from the Chrome store. You'll need to set up your computer for remote access so you'll have to install a couple pieces of software. Don't worry as Chrome Remote Desktop will walk you through all of that.
After the software has been installed, you can then set up a device specific pin for secure access to your remote machines. Alternatively, you can generate a randomized code to give to someone to provide tech support for your machine. This is a bit cumbersome but it requires the host to give access to a guest, making things more secure.
Chrome Remote Desktop has been tested by our team against viruses, spyware, adware, trojan, backdoors and was found to be 100% clean. We will recheck Chrome Remote Desktop when updated to assure that it remains clean.
