GoToMyPC’s remote computer access software lets you instantly connect to your home or office computer’s files, applications, programs, and network the same as if you were at your desk. With GoToMyPC you can connect to your computer from any other device with an Internet connection. You have full access to everything on your computer with no compromise on speed or functionality.

Yes, once GoToMyPC is set up and running on your host computer, you can immediately access it from almost any other Mac or Windows computer that is connected to the Internet. You can use GoToMyPC to access your Mac from a PC, your PC from a Mac, your Mac from a Mac or your PC from a PC.
A VPN, or virtual private network, creates a secure connection between a device and a network. Remote access solutions like GoToMyPC can be more secure than VPN tools. Like GoToMyPC, remote access software can enforce strict access controls and device checks. We also offer multi-factor authentication (MFA) for enhanced protection that VPNs can’t always match. MFA provides a second layer of security — outside of your username and password — to protect the privacy of your credentials when logging into your account.

Get an instant view of your desktop from any PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Kindle Fire, or Android device included in any GoToMyPC subscription. If you haven’t already, sign up for GoToMyPC at www.gotomypc.com and install it on the computer you want to access.

Before using your mobile device, be sure your host computer (the computer you want to access) is turned on and connected to the Internet.

  • Install the GoToMyPC application from the App Store or Google Play on your mobile device.
  • Tap the GoToMyPC icon on your device and log in.
  • Tap the Connect button next to the computer you wish to access.
  • Enter your access code and tap OK. Your host computer’s desktop will now appear on your mobile device’s screen.

Yes, your GoToMyPC remote access sessions are completely private and secure. All data, including screen images, file transfers, keyboard and mouse input and chat text, is fully encrypted from end to end using 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption. No unencrypted information is ever stored on our system. Read our Security White Paper on our Security & Reliability White Paper for more.

GoToMyPC uses a number of conventions to protect access to your computers.

  • Multiple Passwords: To access a computer running GoToMyPC, you must have the email address associated with your account and 2 passwords. You first log in to the secure website at gotomypc.com using your email address and personal password. Then, when you select the computer, you want to access, you must enter a second password, the computer’s unique access code you’ve created, to complete the connection. An access code is required for all connections. To provide machine-level security, the computer’s unique access code resides on the computer and is never transmitted or stored on our servers.
  • Strong Password Requirements: GoToMyPC requires that passwords be at least 8 characters long and contain both letters and numbers. These strict requirements protect you from using easily compromised or common passwords.
  • Multi-Factor Authentication: Also known as Two-Step Verification. An added level of security, providing a more robust level of user authentication using something you know (like a password) and something you have (like a text message code)
  • Single Sign-On (SS): Users can securely log in from other applications with their corporate emails.
  • Limited Number of Log-In Attempts: To protect against hacker attacks, GoToMyPC limits the number of times you can attempt to log in.
  • End-to-End Authentication: Authentication occurs with a challenge/response mechanism using a secure MD5 methodology.
  • Complimentary Antivirus Powered by Bitdefender: You can take control and mitigate the risk of cyber-threats, including malware, viruses, and sophisticated online threats. Our market-leading antivirus solution delivers peace-of-mind for customers looking to protect their valuable data.
  • Blank Host Computer Screen: Depending on your host computer configuration, you can blank the screen of your host computer while you are remotely connected so anyone walking by can’t see what you are working on.
  • Lock Device on Remote Disconnect: Once you disconnect from a remote session, your host computer or the computer you were remotely accessing will automatically lock to keep your device secure.
  • Lock Keyboard and Mouse: You can lock your host computer’s mouse and keyboard while connected in a GoToMyPC session.
  • One-Time Passwords: You can generate a list of One-Time Passwords to further protect your host computer. Each password allows you to access your computer just once.
