Configure Computer

Once you configure your computer for remote access, you can take complete control of your computer over the internet.

Computer Name
A unique name defined for your computer, in your RemotePC account, to identify it for remote access.

Personal Key
A password set by you, acts as your computer's unique access code. It is stored only on your computer and nowhere on the RemotePC servers.

To configure your computer for Always-ON Remote Access,

  1. Log in to your RemotePC account with your registered email address and password. 
    Note: If you do not have an existing account, sign up for a RemotePC account.
  2. On the RemotePC homescreen, click Configure Now! 

  3. Set Computer Name and Personal Key for your computer.
  4. Click Enable Now!

Your computer has been configured for remote access. You can now connect to it using the RemotePC application from another computer or any mobile device.
