Chapter 9. Remote-Control Software for Y... > Features and Considerations

Features and Considerations

One thing to keep in mind when you use GoToMyPC is that you must remember your email address and password to log into their Web site, plus you must remember your access code to access your host computer once you’re logged in to the Web site. Both of these passwords must be eight characters or more for security purposes, so keep a safe record of them or memorize them.

In terms of security, the service uses 128-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption to protect the data stream passing over the Internet containing file transfers, chat, keyboard input, and mouse movements. This, combined with the passwords and access codes, makes the solution highly acceptable for most levels of collaboration and file sharing that you may want to perform.
