About this app

VNC Viewer remote desktop


VNC® Viewer turns your phone into a remote desktop, giving you instant access to your Mac, Windows and Linux computers from anywhere in the world. You can view your computer's desktop remotely, and control its mouse and keyboard as though you were sitting down in front of it.

Just visit realvnc.com and download VNC Connect remote access software to each computer you want to control. Then sign in to VNC Viewer on your device using your RealVNC account credentials. Your remote computers automatically appear; simply tap one to screen share.

Alternatively, you can connect directly to VNC Connect with an Enterprise subscription or VNC-compatible software from third parties by entering the remote computer's IP address. Note that you may need to configure firewalls and port forward routers.

VNC Connect password-protects each remote computer out-of-the-box (you may need to enter the same user name and password you use to log in to your computer). All sessions are then encrypted end-to-end.

During a session, your device's touch screen serves as a trackpad to give you precise control of the remote desktop. Drag your finger to move the remote mouse cursor and tap anywhere to left-click (other gestures such as right-click and scroll are explained in-app).

RealVNC® are the original inventors of VNC remote access technology, and we're confident you'll love what VNC Viewer has to offer. If you're still not convinced, check out our reviews!

Overall VNC Viewer works well on a Chromebook, with one very annoying bug. A white control bar eventually appears at the bottom of the screen, covering the Windows task bar, and I haven't found a way to turn off or disable it, making Windows more difficult to use via a virtual machine.

It struggles half the time to connect. I often have to restart the app or even my phone for it to work. It rarely lets me adjust the device I control. I at least can view it 80% of the time to save time when to go to change settings. Make it like a regular app to select and change settings, not mimic a mouse. Maybe that will fix the problem.

As a developer, I have used this app both on the desktop, and now on mobile, for what has to be more than a decade anyway by this point. I could'nt begin to describe how incredibly useful and easy to use these applications are. Very well designed, streamlined for efficient navigation, intelligent features, fast bug fixes, and I very rarely experience the kinds of connection problems and latency issues I've run into with other similar applications. Nicely done to everyone involved. If the opportunity exists, I would love to find out how to become a beta tester on any new applications you might have coming out.
