PeopleFirst prefers Splashtop for screen sharing; an industry-leading business collaboration services with independently verified security. It's easy to set up and uninstall, and to control when access to your screen is enabled.
Google Meet and its Chrome Remote Desktop is a new option, although it's still not perfect. If you would prefer to screen share using Google Meet, download the extension here under “Get Support.”
Screen Sharing Safety + Guidance
Allowing access to your computer via screen sharing (remote control) is convenient, but a potential security threat. Avoid any business where you cannot independently verify their brick-and-mortar location easily.
Bad actors proliferate the web with bogus services and software, including those with big name brands. Typically, they seek to "fix" problems of their own making once installed, or primarily sell "tune-up" or "cleaner" software as a cure-all.
You should avoid any service that uses scare tactics to resolve an issue, and only elect tech support that you consciously initiated.
All reputable screen sharing software is easy to uninstall and clearly indicates when screen sharing is active and/or enabled.
We all prefer face-to-face meetings, but a combo of Skype/Facetime/voice calling, along with screen sharing, we can work with you from any location. Contact us today to request an initial consultation.
