The best program to remotely access another computer.

AnyDesk is a free program for Windows that allows you to remotely access another computer. For this, both devices must have the program installed and allow access through the use of security keys.

Thanks to AnyDesk, you can do everything you want on another computer as if it were your own. Currently, AnyDesk is the main alternative to TeamViewer and Supremo Remote Desktop, programs that it surpasses in greater compatibility and ease of use.

What is AnyDesk and what is it used for?

AnyDesk is a program of German origin created by the company AnyDesk Software GmbH. Programmed in C++, the program has a freeware license, so its use is completely free.

The purpose of AnyDesk is to grant bidirectional remote access between personal computers and mobile devices. To do this, it uses a TLS-1.2 type security protocol, which makes it impossible for a third party to intercept the connection and access the contents of either of the two computers.

AnyDesk is very popular among professionals who provide technical support. Thanks to this program, it is possible to solve frequent problems on computers without the need for a personal visit, which saves a lot of money for both technicians and clients.


How do I connect to AnyDesk?

AnyDesk is a very easy-to-use program that does not require installation. Just download the file on both computers and run it to open the tool. When you do this, you will see that a 9-digit code appears on the left side of the screen. Send it to the other user who has the program and they will be able to access your computer.

To do this, you must enter that 9-digit code in the "Another workstation" section. Then, click on "Connect" to access the other device. You can also click on the "File Transfer" mode, which will allow you to send files from one computer to another, although in a limited way.

And if you are concerned about security, don't worry, as AnyDesk has a TLS-1.2 security system similar to the one used by banking applications. This technology is responsible for encrypting the information transferred between both computers so that no unauthorized person can intercept the communication.

An essential remote access program

Whether you are a computer technician in charge of technical support or a student who needs to work together with their classmates, AnyDesk is the program you are looking for.

It is a very easy-to-use program that also offers great compatibility, is very secure, and has almost imperceptible latency. Advantages that, without a doubt, you will be able to perceive from the moment you start using it.

You can install AnyDesk on laptops and desktop computers equipped with Windows (7 or higher), macOS, Chrome OS, Linux, and FreeBSD. In addition, it is compatible with iOS and Android mobile devices, as well as with Raspberry Pi devices, and it is available in Spanish.

Connect to a computer or mobile device remotely, whether it’s across town or halfway around the world.

AnyDesk allows you to establish remote desktop connections between devices and opens up unprecedented possibilities of collaborating online and administrating your IT network. AnyDesk ensures secure and reliable remote desktop connections for IT professionals, remote workers, and on-the-go individuals alike.
