Working from Home with a Chromebook Using Splashtop Remote Access

Work from home with Chromebook

Chromebooks have been popular devices used by individuals and educational institutions. More recently, especially as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, companies are also encouraging the use of Chromebooks for their employees to work remotely from home. Whether in an organization that embraces the trend of BYOD (bring your own device) or as a company-owned device, Chromebooks are gaining popularity. Chromebooks sales saw a 23% growth last year. It’s less expensive, lighter and more secure than a laptop, and caters to your needs just as well. All you need is a good WIFI connection.
