Remote Access for Free!

Having remote access to your computer is really nothing new, but all of the great options that used to be free, have become pay services.

Anyone looking for a solid free option that is truly flexible should check out the Chrome Remote Desktop option from Google.

You simply download the add-on to any Chrome Browser on the computer that you want to remotely access.

Then, you can use anything: Windows, Mac or Linux-based to remotely access that computer as if you’re sitting right in front of it!

You can also use Chromebooks, tablets and smartphones to remote in.

This means, if you had to, you could remote into your computer from your smartphone from anywhere in the world, say if you needed to grab a file.

This is the most flexible, easy to use option that I know of and it’s 100% free.

It will only take you a few minutes to setup, so if a solid and free remote access solution is something you’ve been looking for, I highly recommend this one!
