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.
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.
