In today’s world, we’re all on the go and trying to be as productive as possible – whether we’re working from home, checking in on the weekend, or taking work on the road. In fact, we recently found that the majority of people (80%) have worked remotely in the past six months. When you’re out of the office, you want to make sure you have the tools you need to get what you need done easily and quickly. With your LogMeIn subscription, you can download a free mobile app that allows you to remotely access your computer – wherever you might be – so you can stay connected to work anywhere.
There are multiple ways to use the LogMeIn app with your Pro or Central subscription, but these are the two most common scenarios and how to make the most of them.
Remote access via the mobile app
It’s never been easier to access you work computer from your smartphone or tablet. First, just download the latest version of the LogMeIn to your phone (it’s available for iOS and Android). Once you launch the app, you’ll need to login with your LogMeIn ID and password and you’ll see the list of computers you’ve added to your LogMeIn account. Simply click on the computer you want to access and then choose Remote Control to start a session. Once the session starts, you’ll be able to access your computer as if you were sitting right in front of it.
File manager via the mobile app
With the LogMeIn app, you have the flexibility to do what you need with your files. Whether you want to copy files from your smartphone or tablet to a cloud storage service like Dropbox or Box, email them, or simply copy, the app will get the job done. From the My Computers screen in the app, select the computer whose files you want to access, and click File Manager. You’ll see your file structure and have the ability to open folders and files, move, and sync.
If you don’t have the LogMeIn app for your smartphone or tablet, now is the time to get started! You never know when you’ll need access to your computer or files when you’re away from your desk.
