AnyDesk has its redeeming qualities, but it also falls short in some ways. Here’s the best and worst of what AnyDesk has to offer:
Quick and easy setup – You don’t need to install AnyDesk on your machine to use the software. Just download the file and click on it to run the software in portable mode. You can also install the program to unlock more features, such as custom aliases.
What is AnyDesk unattended access?
AnyDesk Unattended 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.
How to enable unattended access to your computer and set a password using AnyDesk
1. First, install the application. If you haven’t downloaded the app yet, please visit AnyDesk. Once you have downloaded the app, a temporary version will be installed. To install the correct PC version, click «Install AnyDesk».
2. Click «Agree and Install» 3. Click «Set Password for Unattended Access»
Anydesk audio is not working.
Make sure «Stream audio output from this desktop» is enabled in the audio settings. Also, go to the «Security» > «Unattended Access» tab and «Remote User Permissions» sections and allow other users to listen to your computer’s sound output.
Make sure «Control my computer’s keyboard and mouse» is checked. In some cases, starting AnyDesk as an administrator on the remote side can resolve this issue.
