Hi guys,

 

 

 

I was just wondering if there is any free app to remote connect to my mac that seats at my place. My idea is to connect from a Windows 10 work computer to my mac mini at home.

 

 

 

I know that I can do it via Chrome but I'll need some on both ends to do it so.

 

 

 

Thanks a lot

I would suggest TeamViewer here as I've used it for this in the past and it has worked very well. But it has had a few security issues over the past few years (https://www.vice.com/en/article/akdqxk/why-cybersecurity-experts-hate-teamviewer-the-software-used-to-tamper-with-florida-water-supply).

 

Searching for a teamviewer alternative (https://www.dnsstuff.com/teamviewer-alternatives) would be a good place to start, I haven't needed to do any remote desktop connection recently so can't suggest a good app sorry.

I dont have a mac but do use Chrome via my iPad Pro and win 10 desktop with zero issues.  Both ends you use the same google account. I installed on the Ipad via the app store.

Absolutely AnyDesk. I use it to access a Mac from a Windows 10 machine and never had an issue.




It’s not that I’m agoraphobic, it’s just not safe to go out anymore.

 

Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Thank everybody, I'll try AnyDesk, however, I think it's just 14 days free trial, right?

No, it's free for personal use.
