Editors' Review

CrossLoop provides a quick, easy, and completely free way to give a colleague, a friend, or a relative access to your computer. After installation, your PC will be assigned a 12-digit access code each time you start the program. You then give that number to another user to virtually share your desktop. Once connected, that user will have full access to your machine.

The odd nature of sharing a desktop cursor and the inability to add multiple users makes CrossLoop illogical for proper business presentations. However, the complete system access and 128-bit encrypted connection combine to create a great solution for low-budget, long-distance tech support. Guests can use any app and save files on your computer, as if they were sitting in front of the machine. No router configuration is required--a big plus. File transfers are now supported, but the purpose here remains collaboration: CrossLoop doesn't work without explicit permission from the host.

Since simplicity is a key attraction, it lacks more advanced features, and the connection must be made in two minutes or it times out. While the interface and the features are simple, CrossLoop offers a secure and fast method for two users to collaborate on one PC.

"works Great"

November 16, 2011  |  By regkaz

 |  Version: CrossLoop 2.81

Pros

My dad is out of state and often has computer questions. I've been using Crossloop for a couple of years to take over his system and make repairs. Connecting is quick and easy.

Cons

Dad still asks me, "Should I click to permit connection?".

Last time I checked it still asked if you wanted to create an account. The "skip" option is often missed by the person you're trying to help who suddenly gets confused as to why they need an account.

Summary

Saves gas money on personal visits for basic computer repairs.

"Excellent!"

 |  Version: CrossLoop 2.81

Pros

Quick, simple, easy to use!

Cons

I haven't found any yet.

Summary

I spent over an hour unsuccessfully trying to connect to my Mom's desktop through Windows Live Messenger to assist her with a computer issue. In frustration, I did a Google search, and found this product. CrossLoop connect was installed on both computers, and I was able to see and control her desktop in less than 5 minutes. Thank you for a simple, easy to use product!
