What do we like for remote access these days?

MIL is having issues with her Mac. Used to be able to connect via FaceTime to take over her machine, but that was a long time ago and I don't think it works like that anymore. What do we like these days? Free would be nice. Also something that's easy enough to install and setup for a ~75 year old who is not the most computer savvy.

I have used TeamViewer for a few years now and have remotely helped many friends and relatives out. I also use it to access my own main iMac when I am away. Very happy with it and it's free.

Voodoo beat me by seconds. You can set it up for unattended access.

To add on... how does Teamviewer work with latent systems ? Mom uses satellite interwebs, and the 600msec latency is a killer.

latency is a pita for any, but TV does a commendable job.

all I need to know I learnt from Bugs Bunny on Saturday mornings.

Television is a medium because it is neither rare nor well done.

Just this morning I heard about Chrome Remote Desktop. Anyone using that?

The ability to connect without getting a password from the remote computer would certainly make it more attractive to me than TeamViewer. But Slant's comparison makes it sound like the remote computer has to be staffed.

I really like Screens by Edovia. I found TeamViewer troublesome.
