HopToDesk is a free remote desktop tool allowing users to share their screen and allow remote control access to their computers and devices. Unlike other similar tools such as TeamViewer or AnyDesk, HopToDesk is free for both personal and business use, provides true end-to-end encryption for all peer communications, and open source.
Screen sharing, remote control, file transfer, and live chat are the basic features available with HopToDesk. Other features such as direct IP access, IP whitelisting and SOCKS5 proxy connections are supported. Please contact us to request new features.
Security and privacy is a priority at HopToDesk. All traffic between users, including chats, file transfers, and screen sharing is end-to-end encrypted. This means HopToDesk does not have the ability to see users screens, files, or any information shared between partners during a remote session. Other remote desktop products do not offer end-to-end encryption and frequently send background data to the remote desktop provider's servers, allowing them to detect commercial use and prevent the application from running again. This is not possible with HopToDesk.
HopToDesk should simply work and be able to connect to any peer without needing to change any router or firewall settings. Other remote desktop tools such as Windows Remote Desktop and VNC do require setting up port forwarding or opening ports on the router or firewall to allow remote connections to be made, however this is not the case with HopToDesk.
Yes, it is easy to manage multiple remote computers using HopToDesk. You may give each computer a name in HopToDesk and use the computer name or ID when starting a remote session. You can use the search and filter box on the main HopToDesk window to search or filter for the computer you want to connect to as the agent/controller. You can also use the Add to Favorites feature to add any computer to the Favorites list for easier access.
You do not need to install HopToDesk, it works as a portable application and can be run from any location. To enable the full set of HopToDesk features on Windows, Mac, and Linux, you may need to click the Install button on the main HopToDesk window. However most features and settings will be available without any installation.
Yes, you may link to HopToDesk or our application download links from your website or application. You may also upload HopToDesk to your website and redistribute the application as you like.

About HopToDesk

HopToDesk started with a need for a high security, easy to use, cross-platform remote control software. For more than a decade, the industry has been dominated primarily by a few solutions: higher cost providers that monitor and track their users while making a distinction between personal and business use, or free products that are often difficult to use as they may require manual router configuration to work properly and often lack support for various platforms.

We strive to provide a better solution by offering a product that enables end-to-end encryption by default between all connected devices and thus can not monitor user activity or make distinction between personal and business use. Additionally, HopToDesk supports all major desktop and mobile operating systems, is easy to use, open source, and available in over 20 languages.

HopToDesk is completely free for both personal and business use under a fair usage policy. In the future we may implemented a freemium pricing model for heavy usage, private cloud network capability, customized branding, or enterprise solutions. HopToDesk is an American company based in the USA.
