Can I operate a mobile device from a PC?

Yes, you can! With Splashtop’s remote support solutions, you can use your PC to remotely access Windows, Android, and iOS mobile devices. You’ll be able to remotely control Windows and Android mobile devices from your PC as well.

This is ideal for IT support and help desk technicians. Using Splashtop, you can provide hands-on support to mobile devices without having them in front of you. Simply use your PC to quickly connect to the mobile device and then use your PC’s interface to operate the mobile device in real-time.

How you can operate a mobile device from PC with Splashtop

Splashtop enables you to access mobile devices via unattended and attended remote sessions.

Unattended means you can access the mobile device any time you want, without needing an end-user on the device to initiate the remote connection. This is ideal for accessing your managed mobile devices for maintenance and support at any hour.

Attended is great for help desk and break-fix services. Anytime an end-user needs support, you can remotely access their mobile device to provide support. Splashtop attended access works for any device, not just the ones you manage. This means you can also support your users’ personal devices.

Either way, once you’ve established a remote connection, you’ll see the screen of the mobile device on your PC. You’ll be able to use your local keyboard and mouse to operate the mobile device to perform any task you desire.
