How To Control Phone With Anydesk

Wherever you are in the world, you can remotely access and control your computer with AnyDesk. And when we say anywhere, we mean it!

You just got out of the office and are hoping for a quiet night, so you left your laptop at work. You’re already on the train when you get a message from your coworker who needs his help and asks you to connect to his computer with AnyDesk. Now??!!

Start Screen Sharing via Android

Once you open the AnyDesk app for Android, you will see a number titled «Your Address» on the home screen. Give this number to the person you want to share your screen with and tell them to enter it into AnyDesk. The field is named «Remote Desktop» or «Remote Address», depending on the application.

With your first session request, you’ll also receive a security message, urging you not to grant access to anyone you don’t know. Make sure you trust the person who contacts you and agrees to the request. Now you can start your presentation and everything you do on your phone will be visible to your guest.

Additional FAQ

To activate the «Send CTRL+ALT+DEL» feature in AnyDesk on a remote device based on Windows , from your connected device, hold down the «CTRL+ALT+SHIFT» key and then press the «DEL» key.

Remote access to an Android device from another Android using Anydesk

Similarly, you can control an Android device from your PC, or even another Android device. To do that, enter the AnyDesk address of the Android device you want to remote control into the AnyDesk app on the Android device you want to control it from. On the Android device that you want to access from another device, tap START NOW and tap OK. Once you do, you should immediately see your screen mirrored to the other Android device. See the screenshots below:

Besides AnyDesk, there are many other apps and tools that can help you control an Android device from another Android or PC. You can use TeamViewer, InkWire or AirDroid and AirMirror duo apps. When it comes to ease of use, InkWire comes second only to AnyDesk.

Additional features

Every time a connection is started, AnyDesk requires you to maintain the application. If it doesn’t, the connection fails. However, if you wish to bypass this restriction, AnyDesk also provides «Unattended Access». Right under «Your address», it has a little link that says «Set password for unattended access». Tap on it and set a password.

From now on, an Android device with the password can connect and control your device without your attention. This can also be risky and therefore I recommend that you share the password only with those you know. Or just disable this option, once you have finished the job.
