If you are worrying about security then, i would like to inform that whatever your partner does on your computer, mobile or even server, you will be able to see that what the partner is doing on your system very clearly as the mouse pointer along with any other instructions are shown repeatedly on the screen.

So, from now there is no need of your presence as you can sort all system related configurations remotely. If you are worrying about the access then since this is employs cloud based services you will not have to worry about the firewalls, IP addresses and also the NATting as this will surpass all of these services.

    The instructions provided are very confusing. How do I know the partner id? Assuming this is going to be my pc? How does my phone connect to my pc? Please you have left out so many steps and information. Can you provide a clearer step by step instructions? Thanks.
