What is AnyDesk unattended access?
AnyDeskUnattended access is a secure method of accessing a remote device without the physical presence of anyone around the device. You can take control of the remote device and use its file manager, clipboard, audio, screen to draw, etc. It is also possible to record a video of the remote session.
The AnyDeskunattended access plan is free for personal use and available as a monthly subscription for business users. Also, you can sign up for a 14-day trial license to explore the paid features.
Connect to the remote device
If a password is set on the remote computer, you can choose to log in automatically. Just connect and wait for the password dialog to appear.
Check «Log in automatically from now» and enter the correct password. You will no longer be prompted for the password for future connections to the same machine. This function does not save the password itself. Instead, if the password was entered correctly, the remote machine generates a specific token. This token is like a special key that can only be used by a single AnyDesk customer. This means that there is no way to recover the clear text password, even if someone has full access to your computer.
