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.

"I found over 50 HIGH RISK VIRUSES"

January 07, 2011  |  By Digital_jammer

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.1.131

Pros

It allows one to remotely control their computer, but please see cons!

Cons

Over 50 high risk virus were discovered in my computer memory right after I installed this program. I have no vested interested in putting this product down either.

Summary

I am a computer tech, I make my income fixing computers. I used Logmein's free version many times before. But most recently I installed it here and on my girlfriend's computer. AVAST! Free Anti Virus picked up on over 50 to 100 high risk viruses ALL in MEMORY (RAM) of my computer after that, but no where could I find the source of the mal-ware. All I could guess is somehow these viruses were stored offline and got on my computer that way- Keep in mind my system was clean before I installed this program, and the source of the infection had to be online because all scans of my system drive was clean. - I do not know if LogMeIn was to blame, BUT I advise all users of the free trial to scan their RAM for such viruses before and after installing this program. Decide for yourself s if I am wrong. Thanks.

This is a LEGAL FORM OF A VIRUS. Keep an eye on your virus scans, and make sure you scan your MEMORY for virus signatures- I found well over 50 such viruses in my Ram only shortly after installing this program. I used to trust this outfit, and maybe I am wrong. But I have to advise others to scan their systems. I have NO VESTED INTEREST in putting this program down. I used to use it a lot and I liked it. But last time things did not go well, and I now am skeptical if we can trust the programmers of Logmein. Remember the viruses I found were running in my computer's memory, no other sign of then on my system drive- That leads me to feel the source had to be a backdoor- and it happen to me right after installing Logmein- now uninstalled.

"Unethical billing practices, terrible customer service"

November 22, 2010  |  By andrew08570

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.1.131

Pros

This is not a software review.

Cons

Unethical business practices

Summary

Automatic billing is opt-out instead of opt-in. I was charged for six months of service I did want, and did not use, but their policy is no refunds. Customer service person was rude. A manager was supposed to call me but never did.

"Fantastic! Does exactly what it says and does it well."

October 20, 2010  |  By twimm

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.1.131

Pros

For a small non-profit like mine, money is tight. Being able to use a great little program like this - for FREE - makes a world of difference to the way our agency works.

Cons

None that II can think of.

Summary

This product enables small agencies like mine to offer some of the same flexibility to its employees that larger, more powerful agencies can offer. Being able to work from where ever we are at the moment saves us time and money and helps us get our jobs done more efficiently. It may not offer all the bells and whistles, but it offers enough to allow us to do what we need to do when we need to do it. I'd highly recommend this to others.

"Great, but a few issues."

September 24, 2010  |  By Silver-Spait

 |  Version: LogMeIn Free 4.1.131

Pros

Easy to use, connect from anywhere in the world.

Cons

A bit of lag, not good enough guide.

Summary

This program is great, you can connect from anywhere in the world, of course you need an internet connection. It does what you want it to do, easy to use and you can have multiple computers added.

The issues is that the guide is not good enough, you may be able to understand it, but looking for a video tutorial is a way better thing to do if your in need of help.
Also, it can be some "lag" NOT mutch, but a bit witch can get quiet annoying if you are in a hurry or really want to do something- Maybe fast.

This is one of the BEST remote control programs i have ever tried and it works great. It is surely something you should try before you say something else.
