Editors' Review

+

The name might be LogMeIn, but the motto should be SignMeUp.

The fact that it's free to use for multiple remote PCs, with reasonable monthly plans if you need more--five computers for $20 per month or $200 per year--makes this remote-access program instantly appealing. The program differs from its competitors in that the application runs in your Web browser. If you're running Firefox, it asks to install a plug-in and then opens an emulator of the remote PC in a new window. If you have a lot of tabs open, LogMeIn will slow down your browsing and possibly your CPUs clock speed a bit.

The control window gives you some standard options such as Ctrl-Alt-Del (which kills the connection) and changing the view settings, as well as tabbed access to adjust the connection setting. The 256-bit SSL encryption and dual passwords--one for the program and one for the remote PC's log-in--are welcome protections.

You must upgrade to take advantage of the file transfer and synchronization abilities, but creative users should be able to find ways around that restriction for small files. Still, for the functionality and the price, LogMeIn is an excellent program.

"Not Free As Advertised"

October 07, 2007  |  By hagendas

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 3.0.606

Pros

Pro: Nice simple to use interface

Cons

"Free" mean "no cost at all". Their interpretation of "free" means "no cost for a few weeks, then you have to pay to continue to use it". If you have to provide funds to use the software then it's not free. Just another example of a company that feels the public is too dumb to understand a play on words. Unless you're willing to fork out the cash then skip this one.

"I can finally help my family with their computer woes!"

September 28, 2007  |  By johnetx

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 3.0.606

Pros

First of all to those of you who claimed logmein free isn't free, or that it wouldn't run or some other sorry excuse to give it a bad review, If you would simply go to the website and select the free version and actually follow the installation instructions, you'd find out it DOES work and IS FREE!

I first installed it in my home pc then sat across the room to test it from my laptop. I was truly amazed how easy it was and I could do most anything I wanted to do, just as if I was typing on the pc's keyboard. Then I had my dad and 2 of my sisters install the software on their computers (remote users need to log into your account) while I gave them instructions over the phone. We live over 1,000 miles apart and my family isn't as computer literate as say your average 12 year old these days. Still they got it installed and I logged into their computers without a hitch. I installed and uninstalled various software, configured their startup programs, showed them how to keep the pc running smoothly, how to navigate through programs and browsers, and found out that all their systems were very weak in RAM, (which my inexperienced dad installed for both he and my sisters).

I used to be so frustrated trying to tell my family step-by-step how to fix this or that, or simply how to play music files, whatever, all over the phone. That is history now, because when there's a problem I simply log into their pc and SHOW them how it's done! We've had logmein Free for about 4 months now, use it at least a couple times a week, and it's still FREE! Oh, and even though you can't transfer files with the program, we simply use the Pando extra with Skype for that. Those programs are also free, we use Skype for video calls between siblings.

Can you tell I like this program? If you have computer-challenged family like I do, this is a true sanity saver. You can help them feel much more comfortable at the computer and less fearful of "hitting the wrong button". Oh, and by the way....it's FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Works OK, but entirely too expensive for the home user."

September 21, 2007  |  By RealDoclocke

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 3.0.606

Pros

Functional; works as advertised on my computer and those of my family members that I need access to in order to perform maintenance.

Cons

Perhaps all those who have raved about this software, and claim it has no downside, have installed a program other than the one available on this site. The software I downloaded and installed is free for 30 days, and then requires a monthly charge of $12.95. Certainly not "free" in my dictionary.
