Simple & Secure Unattended Remote Connections

Once you have your password set up on your remote devices, you can choose to log in automatically. Simply connect to your remote device and wait for the password dialog to appear. When you check “Login automatically from now on” and enter the correct password, you will not be asked for permission for future connections. The machine will generate a specific token that relates to your AnyDesk client. There is no way to retrieve the password from your device, even if someone has full access to your computer. Now you’re all set!

Unattended Remote Access Security & Permissions

AnyDesk has a variety of security features to help ensure that your transactions on remote devices remain secure and safe while you interact with sensitive data and files. When it comes to unattended access, you have the ability to revoke permissions to access your device. You can revoke user permissions by changing your password, which invalidates all current tokens, or you can clear all tokens that are currently validated with permission to access your remote device.
