"A free secure screen sharing utility."

Overview

Your friend needs help with a problem he has on his computer but you are not next to him to explain how to solve it? Now it’s simple! With CrossLoop, you will now be able to see their PC screen and control the keyboard and mouse. It is a free software product that helps you to have access on your friend’s, relative’s or colleague’s computer from any corner of the world. It is a web based secure remote support software allowing screen sharing. Now let’s take a look and find out more about this useful tool in this quick article.

Installation

In a nutshell, CrossLoop allows you to have access on other users’ computers. But this is not before he gives you the permission to access his system. The installation is simple. You must first download the setup. After you download it, a main window will appear in which you will select run. Once you launch the program, a registration page will appear. You will be allowed to skip the option. Before you start the program, an access code will be required. It doesn’t feature adware/malware or other programs bundled with it.

Interface

The interface of CrossLoop is very easy to use and simple. You will need an access name and a code. On the main window of the software, two tabs will appear. You will either access your page by selecting Join tab or share your access code with a friend allowing him to control your computer by selecting the Host tab. Both you and your friend will need to have CrossLoop installed to control each other’s PC. The interface is simple and can be used by beginners too.

Pros

Now, it is easy to give help or be helped by someone even if you are in two different locations. Everybody will be able to connect with each other from anywhere on the Internet. It will not be necessary to change the firewall or router settings. After you finish the setup, no signup will be required. Before you have access on another computer, you will first have to get permission from that person to control his PC. You will then have the possibility to control it by seeing his screen and being able to use the mouse and keyboard. You will now collaborate with your friends, colleagues, relatives or anyone in the world. You don’t have to worry about your privacy because CrossLoop takes care of this matter as it implements a high level of security.

Cons

I didn’t found any cons for this program. Perhaps a personal observation is that more skins would be welcomed in a future version of the program.

Alternative

Some alternatives to CrossLoop include the following remote utilities: TeamViewer, LogMeIn, Windows Remote Desktop Connection, Windows Live Mesh, Ultra VNC, Imo instant messenger.

Conclusion

All in all, CrossLoop is a pretty easy to use and neat piece of software. It allows you to have access on another user’s computer and share your desktop screen with a remote computer. You can now collaborate with anyone you want in the world without any barriers. Quick and easy! Be sure that you check it out!
