User review for more than 5 years

5.0 last week New

Comments: Very good experience. There are no negative comments I can leave

Pros:

Ease of use and ease of downloading. The size of the program is very light. Very easy to use. Very simple. There are no complications

Cons:

I don't understand why sometimes the connection is slow and the screen display is slow even though the internet speed is above good. This problem I encountered more than once and I did not understand its cause.

AnyDesk, AnyTime

5.0 2 weeks ago New

Comments: Anydesk allows me to give assistance or simply doing maintenance task to remote computer comfortably from my office desk, so I save time and money.
Anydesk runs smoothly and never hangs, little hardware requirements. Just be sure to have a stable and fast enough data line.

Pros:

I use Anydesk for work every day, and it helps me to remote connect and diagnose/troubleshoot/fix a lot of software problems. The program is small and quick to launch. Every AnyDesk user has a numbered ID. When you want to connect to someone just write the peer ID and wait for connection to be established (your peer has to authorize the connection). Next you will see remote screen and you will be able to interact using your mouse and keyboard. You can also transfer files. Free sessions last for 60 minutes. I highly recommend Anydesk. It's a light program, easy to use for everyone. Thumbs up!

Cons:

The remote address field is quite hidden

Benefits of using AnyDesk

3.0 2 months ago New

Pros:

Ease of connecting with your co-worker to discuss on the job or assignment you re given.

Cons:

No secrecy as there is high tendency that the policies regarding the work be exposed to others who are not part of the job but were invited to put you through due to the similar experience they have.

Anydesk, anytime, anywhere

5.0 last week New

Comments: I use Anydesk at work but also during my free time when I need to remote connect to another computer to give assistance.
Never hangs and requires very little resources, plus it's very easy yo use for everyone and makes my work easier and faster as i can fix many problems without the need to be "on site".

Pros:

Among the remote connection softwares Anydesk is the lightest, really easy to use for your peers, they just launch the executable, tell you the number ID and allow remote access. The interface is simple and easy to understand, with latest connections below and your ID in the top. To connect to a remote machine just fill the white upper blank field and wait for connection. Be sure to have a good quality line on both sides. Once connected you will interact as you were physically in front of the computer, with your keyboard and mouse. Of course you can also transfer files. The free connections last for 60 minutes. A really good program, you should have it on your pc.

Cons:

The field where you have to write the ID number of your peer is a bit hidden

Pros:

One of the best feature of AnyDesk is that you can use it without any installation. Using it is very easy and low resources consumption makes it the perfect remote control app.

Cons:

No cons for this great software, everything works great.
