Remote access through the phone makes it possible to always stay in touch and control your devices at any time. Getscreen.me allows getting access to a remote desktop from Android and iOS in several ways.

Quick connection via a QR code

If you want to quickly connect to your desktop, download the agent to your computer and scan the QR code.

After following the link, you will get access to the remote desktop and will be able to manage it from your phone.

Apart from desktop devices, you can also connect to Android-powered mobile devices by installing Getscreen.me Agent.

Connection from personal account

You can visit your personal account from a mobile device browser. To do this, go to Getscreen.me and log in.

Besides, you can add your personal account to your smartphone home screen using progressive web applications.
