How To Know My Anydesk Password

Two-factor authentication is not a feature of AnyDesk that everyone uses. The software developer mainly recommends it to those who are setting up unattended access to their machine or mobile device. That being said, even if you have all the credentials but have enabled 2FA, the software will prohibit access to your account. Unless you can do one of the following, that is:

  • Enter a 6-digit code sent via SMS to the registered phone number or authenticator app (Microsoft Authenticator, Google Authenticator, FreeOTP)
  • Enter your recovery key. This is a failsafe in case you are unable to enter the above code. This is the code that AnyDesk suggested you print or save for safekeeping when you first enabled two-factor authentication.

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.

  1. Open AnyDesk and click the three horizontal lines in the upper right corner of the screen.
  2. Click «Settings».
  3. Select «Privacy» in the left sidebar.
  4. Check the «Control my device’s keyboard and mouse» option to complete the process.
