Remote Access Option That's Still Free

There are many reasons why you might want remote access to one of your computers, but most solutions that used to be free now charge for that access.

There is one, however, that’s still completely free and very powerful: Google’s Remote Desktop via the Chrome browser.

It’s incredibly easy to set up with a quick download of a tool from their website that integrates with the Chrome browser.

Once you’ve spent a minute or two configuring the tool along with your Google account, it makes the computer accessible by a myriad of devices through your account.

It’ll even become accessible via your smartphone or tablet, which can be a lifesaver in certain situations.

You don’t have to be a brain surgeon to get this tool to work, so if you don’t have anything set up yet, we love this for users of all skill levels.
