Remote Access Software For Free

March 12, 2009

LogMeIn Free

Free remote access is a reality with LogMeIn. Secure and ease-of-use come together in a powerful remote control solution that’s 100% free and gives you full control of your home or work computer from anywhere you are with an Internet connection. LogMeIn is Web-based so it’s far easier to use than alternatives–yet offers layers of security that others just don’t including end-to-end 256-bit SSL encryption, dual authentication and RSA SecureID. Control your computer from anywhere quickly, easily, and securely.

WHAT WE LIKE:

  • Setup and ease of use rival GoToMyPC
  • Access to all files and programs via Web browser
  • 256-bit encryption

LogMeIn Free is a boon for GoToMyPC users looking to access a single PC while they’re out of the office or away from home. While it won’t actually let you transfer files, you can e-mail them via the host PC or use a free file-sharing service like Driveway.com to transfer large files. Upload the file from your host PC to the site, click a link on the PC you’re using, and files up to 500MB will download to the computer you’re currently using. An OS X version is available for Mac users. Install it on an OS X machine, and you’ll be able to control your Mac from the Web even if you’re on a PC. And the built-in 256-bit encryption puts GoToMyPC to shame.

    I like logmein but I`m not sure that it is secure.
    I read that you can be easily attacked by phishers if you use logmein or gotomypc. I found this information here http://remote-access-software.net/security/cybercriminals-love-web-based-remote-access.html
