What’s my (username and) password?

VNC Server password-protects remote access out-of-the-box so your computer is safe as soon as you power it on.

Each time you connect, you’ll be asked to enter the remote access credentials for that computer:

  • If you have a Home subscription, enter the password you specified when you installed VNC Server on that computer.
  • If you have a Professional or Enterprise subscription (or took a trial), enter the username and password you normally use to log on to your user account on that computer.

There’s more information on all the available authentication schemes here.
