Remote computer repair is rapidly becoming a more popular option for many computer owners. Although many are starting to consider this type of repair, there are still some who are having second thoughts about the efficiency and convenience of this process.
If you are among these individuals, you have come to the right place. This article will provide you with all the information that you need to remove your doubts about this type of repair.
What is remote computer repair?
This type of repair is basically the same as the traditional way of fixing your computer – which is either bringing your computer to the technician or calling a technician to come over to your house for the repair. The only difference is that in this specific type of repair, you and the technician no longer have to go anywhere.
As long as you and the technician both have access to the internet, the technician will be able to fix your computer without actually having to see and touch your computer. With the help of a remote access software or application, which you will be required to download and install to your device, the technician is able to access your device and control it remotely. As a result, he or she is able to perform the necessary operations and process to fix your device.
Is it safe and secure?
Remote computer repair is extremely safe and secure. Bear in mind that no one will be able to access your computer even if you installed the remote access software or application. All of these types of software or application require granting of access between devices or individuals. The application will notify you if someone wants to access your computer or device. For a higher level of security, some applications generate a secure key code which you will give to the technician to allow him access to your computer.
As soon as your computer has been fixed and the technician’s job has been done, the access to your computer will be terminated. For those applications and software that generate key codes, each code is specific to a single transaction. Hence, the code you provided to the technician will no longer work for a second time. He or she or anyone who might want to try and access your computer will need a new set of key codes which they will have to ask from you.
Will it cost much?
Remote computer assistance doesn’t cost a lot. In fact, it costs less than the traditional repair because there is no need for the technician to travel to your location and fix your computer. Also, you save on transportation costs since you would no longer have to bring your laptop to the technician’s shop.
