Remote access, as the term suggests, refers to the ability to access a computer, such as a home computer or a machine that’s connected to a school’s network, from a remote location. Remote access can be set up using a local area network (LAN), a wide area network (WAN) or a virtual private network (VPN), and once established, it gives you full control over the device you’re ‘remoting’ to. You can then run any applications and even open files on the machine.
In the guide, you’ll find tips on a number of potential risks such as cyber-scams, hacking and privacy concerns.
