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.

"Life-saving application"

September 25, 2008  |  By mokamanu

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.0.68

Pros

Very efficient, secure, and reliable. The log-in steps are easy to follow, interface is simple and clear. Has never failed me yet.

Cons

For freeware there is very little to complain about, other than the annoying displaying asking if I want to upgrade to the Pro version.

Summary

I use this every day for my business, and it works so well that I have come to rely on it for really important work, rather than have to carry work and other files around on a memory stick.

September 15, 2008  |  By JuanMendez335

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.0.68

Pros

Very professional for a free software

Cons

none now **** and hit the download link

Summary

Don't get confused if sometimes it works faster; the software relies on user's connection a lot.

"Awesome Product!"

September 10, 2008  |  By eromrab

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.0.68

Pros

I use this for 14 different computers. I have my 4 in one group, I have another 6 for family and another 4 for friends. My family is always calling me up (they live 12 hours away) and complaining about their computer problems. This helps!

Cons

No cons. I have never had a single problem with it! I use it behind super secure networks... at work... to check my personal emails and all that. Ssshhh!

Summary

This program couldn't get any better unless they gave you the professional stuff free... it's awesome for personal use to check your stuff at home... to access sites you couldn't from work... or just in case you "forgot a file" at home... you can email it to yourself at the computer you're on and bam. Solved. I use it for family & friend computer problems so they will stop pestering me as much! haha. They never know how to explain what is really wrong anyways! I log in from time to time and run an Avast boot scan on their computer when they're not around. It's a wonderful program!

"Great FREE product - minor issues"

August 22, 2008  |  By alexndrw

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.0.68

Pros

Excellent execution of the idea. Tempts me to move to Pro version. Used on Mac OSX and Vista can access and open programs, edit files etc.

Cons

Remote PC has to on and fully powered up. Moving browser window requires a Refresh but these are minor niggles - hence the 4 star rating.

Summary

Very useful app. Well executed and no serious drawbacks. Highly recommended.

"Works well as advertised"

August 14, 2008  |  By BBaggins

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.0.68

Pros

It logs me into my home machine and allows me to maintain it remotely. Additionally, I can work on the machine as if I'm there. All this and secure encryption to boot.

Cons

Sometimes it leaves a bit of something to be done on the other end before the machine is ready to use again.

"Wow, it really works!"

July 29, 2008  |  By Travisuberdownloader

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.0.68

Pros

It does what it says it does, lets me have total control. This could be exploited somewhere, I think. I will keep aware. I can't beleieve it's free! I smell a trap...

Cons

Very much a resource and memory hog. I only leave it running if I actually intend to use it.
