See how easy remote desktop access can be from any device.


Discover greater productivity and flexibility with GoToMyPC.

  • 1. Install GoToMyPC

    You can create your account anywhere, but for GoToMyPC Personal or Pro, to set it up you need to be physically present at the Mac or PC you want to access remotely. For GoToMyPC Corporate, you can set up your account from anywhere without needing to be physically present at the PC you want to access remotely.

    On your other computer, log in at Press Connect and your desktop will appear in front of you.
  • 3. Work Like Normal

    Access your files, applications and network as if you were sitting right in front of your computer. It’s really that simple.

    Secure Login and Authentication

    When you log in to the HTTPS-protected GoToMyPC website or mobile app and select the host computer you’d like to access, the GoToMyPC broker signals that computer to start a session. (Remember that you’ve previously installed GoToMyPC on that computer and left it turned on.) The host computer then asks you to enter your access code, which we never store on our servers, but on the host computer itself.

    Encrypted Data Stream

    After you enter the correct access code, the broker chooses one of our GoToMyPC communication servers to relay a connection between your devices, allowing every mouse and keyboard action you make to travel between them. This completely private data stream is encrypted end-to-end with 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).

    Reliable and Scalable

    With multiple datacenters around the world, GoToMyPC is always ready when you are. Redundant switches and routers, clustered servers, backup systems and strict security measures ensure your data and firewalls are protected around the clock.

    High Performance

    GoToMyPC only transmits the host screen image, and only as it changes. We also highly compress the data to minimize lag time, so you’ll feel just like you’re sitting in front of your host desktop. You can also actively monitor your connectivity status in-session to ensure you are getting the best performance possible or troubleshoot inter-device issues.
