What is AnyDesk?

AnyDesk is basically an application with which to make connections remotely with another computer or even cell phone. The remote connection allows you to control devices from anywhere in the world in a very simple way, that is why it is one of the best applications that we can find in terms of resource optimization for companies.

Remote desktop applications can be very useful, for example to telework making queries on the office computer as we would do if we were present in it or that the company’s IT can connect to our terminal to solve a specific problem.

Among the multiple advantages of AnyDesk we can highlight the following:

  • Multi-platform support: it is compatible with multiple platforms and operating systems: Windows, Linux, Free BSD, Mac OS, iOS and Android.
  • Mobile: we can download the application on our mobile and they will not make extra charges for it. One of the best resources of AnyDesk mobile is that it has a series of adapted controls with advanced options with certain finger movements and, in addition, it allows sending files remotely. It also allows you to control your mobile from your computer, although in this case it is a function that is not available for all devices.
  • Online collaboration between different users: this application allows you to collaborate with your colleagues and communicate easily, whether in meetings, online presentations or when working on the same document from the other side of the world.
  • Session recording: both users and IT professionals accessing the computer can record each session. This can be used to control what an external user can see when connecting remotely to our computer if we are not present at the time. It is also very useful for training videos in the company.
  • Free download: this remote desktop application has both paid modes for companies and free subscription for individual users. In order to use it, it is only necessary to have a stable Wifi connection and download the base application of only 3 MB on the computer you want to manage. It is not necessary to install it, when you open it, it will simply give us a code that we will have to use on the device from which we want to control it.

Now that we know what is AnyDesk, we will explain how to start using AnyDesk step by step in any specific system that we want.
