In today's fast-paced world, offering tech support to family members can be a daunting yet essential task. Whether assisting grandparents with their computers or helping younger relatives set up devices, the need for seamless and reliable remote access solutions has never been more apparent.

This is where Splashtop emerges as a game-changer, designed to simplify and enhance your ability to assist family members with their tech needs, no matter where they are by enabling you to access their devices remotely.

Splashtop Solutions for Support Friends and Family

Splashtop Business Access

Splashtop Business Access is designed for individual users or teams who need consistent remote access to their own or other’s computers. It's ideal for family members who aren't tech-savvy, as it only requires a one-time setup of the Splashtop Streamer on the computers they need access to.

Once set up, they can leave their computers on and allow remote access whenever needed. Key features include high-performance remote access with capabilities like multi-monitor support, file transfer, remote print, and user role management. It provides robust security with features such as two-factor authentication and the ability to manage access per-user.

Splashtop SOS

Splashtop SOS is tailored for situations where multiple family members need occasional support without giving constant access to their devices. This option is better suited for users who require immediate assistance on an ad-hoc basis. Each support session is initiated by the family member requiring help, who provides a session code to the supporter. This model ensures that access is granted only when necessary, enhancing privacy and control over personal devices.

"With my 92 year old father in San Jose and me in San Francisco, Splashtop was a wonderful and easy way for me to help manage his desktop without having to drive to San Jose every day. He could follow my actions on his desktop while I explained what we were doing on the phone: no more, 'what is the error message saying now, Dad?' It was the perfect solution, and I have been recommending it to many friends and families."
