Were often asked what these are:* If you applied a Free license to VNC 5, enter the password you created when you installed it on your computer.* If you applied a paid-for license (or took a trial), enter the username and password you normally use to *log on* to your computer.We dont want to hide anything from you, so please note that connections will only be secure (encrypted) if you applied a paid-for license to VNC 5 (or took a trial). Connections to a Free license are fast and responsive, but we hope youll understand that end-to-end encryption is a premium feature.===How to control===Your finger moves the mouse cursor rather than clicking where you touch, as you might expect with a touchscreen. While this may seem counter-intuitive at first, youll soon appreciate the fine-grained control it gives you of a high-resolution computer desktop (especially from the small screen of an iPhone!)Mouse operations are performed by gestures. So to double-click, position the mouse cursor appropriately and then tap the screen twice. To see which gestures weve mapped to other click, drag, and scroll operations, tap [?] on the toolbar to open the help.To type, open the keyboard from the toolbar. Function and other special keys (such as Ctrl, Alt, Delete, and the Cmd key on a Mac) are available from a sliding bar above the keyboard.As for the rest: its as though youre sitting in front of your computer! Theres simply no limit to the applications you can run, data you can access, nor operations you can perform===Contact===Wed love to hear from you:firstname.lastname@example.org@RealVNCfacebook.com/realvncBetter still, leave us a review!===Trademarks===RealVNC and VNC are trademarks of RealVNC Limited and are protected by trademark registrations and/or pending trademark applications in the European Union, United States of America and other jurisdictions.
