Is remote access safe?

VNC Connect is designed with security in mind.

VNC Server password-protects access to a remote computer out-of-the-box, and all connections are encrypted end-to-end. There’s a whole host of other security features built-in to VNC Server and VNC Viewer apps too.

RealVNC’s online systems and services have the policies, technologies and controls you’d expect. Note we recommend enabling 2-step verification on your RealVNC account.

As with everything online, it’s about people as well as software. You should make sure your passwords are difficult to guess, and keep them secret. And it’s best practice not to re-use a password from another online system or service.
