Completely Free Remote Tool




The ability to remotely access your computer has been around for a long time, but most of the options that used to be free are now charging to use their tools.

There is still a free option that’s more than enough for most people and it’s from Google.

There’s a plugin called Chrome Remote Desktop for the Chrome browser that makes this possible.

Any computer running the Chrome browser can become remotely accessible with this simple addition.

With it on your computer, you can access it from any other computer, smartphone or tablet that has the Chrome browser as well.

It’s easy to set up, easy to use and still a completely free option for remote access!
