Overall Satisfaction with Chrome Remote Desktop

I am using Chrome Remote Desktop to access my computer's desktop from my phone when needed. Only used in a single department, single person.
  • Desktop access from mobile devices
  • Desktop access from other computers
  • Don't have to be on the same network to access. You can use any internet connected device that supports the Chrome Remote Desktop app.
  • Built in file transfer would be nice.
  • Has sporadic issues with Admin pop-up permissions dialogue boxes
  • Being able to access remote desktop, especially in an emergency. Gives you full access to what you need in such times.
I've used RealVNC but it takes much longer to set up RealVNC in the past. More firewall setup. Not as secure in my opinion.
When you are away from your computer and you need full access to your desktop. Especially useful for when there is an app that is only supported on Desktop and not a mobile version.
