Do I have to sign up for a RealVNC account?ΒΆ

Yes. It only takes a few seconds. Sign up or sign in.


Please choose a complex account password and don’t re-use an existing one! We recommend setting up 2-step verification on the Security page as well.

Your RealVNC account credentials (email address and password) are important. Use them to:

  • Sign in online to manage computers, people, renewals and payment methods for your team.
  • Sign in to VNC Server desk-side at install-time in order to apply your subscription to computers you want to control.
  • Sign in to VNC Viewer on devices you want to control from in order to automatically discover team computers, and backup and sync your address book.

If you’re a developer, note you can use the same credentials to sign in to our VNC Developer website and download the VNC SDK, in order to build remote access in to your own product or service.
