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 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!

===Key features===

- Connect with ease via our cloud service to a remote desktop.
- Backup and sync your connections between all your devices by signing in to VNC Viewer on each one.
- A scrolling bar above the virtual keyboard includes advanced keys such as Command/Windows.
- Support for Bluetooth keyboards and mice.
- Free, paid and trial VNC Connect subscriptions available.

Waited over a year to get android 12 support. We never got it. Now 13 is out and it's not supported either. Be prepared to constantly have to disconnect/reconnect because the app constantly freezes. If you still use Android 11 or lower it actually works great though. It sure would be nice if they updated their app to actually work with the latest Android versions. You get no support unless you pay but why would you pay for an app that's not supported?

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.

This is a great app overall. Does what you need it to do for remote connections. However, for those who are using thier Samsung device in DeX mode, this app does not work. It reports that it was designed for touch screens. That's too bad since I was really looking forward to using this app for my remote desktop connections while in DeX mode.
