Remote Computer Support can be risky, but it is becoming more commonplace these days. Always make sure of the following:

  • The provider is reputable – Do some research online
  • The software used to access your system is from a reputable provider e.g. TeamViewer
  • The remote access software is uninstalled afterwards e.g. TeamViewer does not install anything
  • Make sure you are in full control of the process e.g. can stop it at any time
