Our Technology

Learn about the secure remote access
technology behind GoToMyPC.

We designed our technology for maximum speed, security
and usability, ensuring you can easily log in and connect
to your host computer from any remote computer, iPad,
iPhone or Android device.

Secure login & authentication

When you log in to the HTTPS-
protected GoToMyPC website or
mobile app and select the host
computer you’d like to access, the
GoToMyPC broker signals that
computer to start a session.

(Remember that you’ve previously
installed GoToMyPC on that computer
and left it turned on.)

The host computer then asks you to
enter your access code, which we
never store on our servers, but on the
host computer itself.

Encrypted data stream

After you enter the correct access code, the broker chooses one of our GoToMyPC communication servers to relay a connection between your devices, allowing every mouse and keyboard action you make to travel between them. This completely private data stream is encrypted end-to-end with 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES).

Reliable and scalable

With multiple datacenters around the world, GoToMyPC is always ready when you are. Redundant switches and routers, clustered servers, backup systems and strict security measures ensure your data and firewalls are protected around the clock.

High performance

GoToMyPC only transmits the host screen image, and only as it changes. We also highly compress the data to minimize lag time, so you’ll feel just like you’re sitting in front of your host desktop.
