CrossLoop is a handy, simple program for connecting two computers over the internet. Maybe you have a relative or friend that is not too good with computers and they need some help. With CrossLoop you can connect to their computer and have full access. They can see everything that you are doing.
CrossLoop is secure, and there must be someone at the remote computer. When they run CrossLoop, it will give them an access code. They give you the access code over the phone, which then lets you connect to their computer.
Best of all, CrossLoop is free! And there are no firewall settings that you have to mess with in order to get it to work.
Here is the basic process:
You and your friend / relative download and install CrossLoop.
You both run CrossLoop.
When it asks to create an account, just click SKIP in the lower-right.
The person at the remote computer should click on the SHARE tab.
It will display an access code. They give you the access code.
You should click on the ACCESS tab. Enter the code, including spaces. (there is a space after every four digits)
Your computer will attempt to connect.
A message will pop-up on the remote computer asking whether they want to connect. They should click YES.
You should now be connected, and the screen should display the remote computer. Minimize the CrossLoop window to get it out of the way.
Please note that if you or your friend / relative have an antivirus program or firewall, you may get a warning message. Don't worry, just accept the connection. I use Comodo firewall, and it did not complain. I did however get a warning from Microsoft Defender (a spyware program). I just told it to ignore the warning.
