  2. Click Preferences.
  3. Click the Security tab to set your security preferences.

Security preferences

  • Lock host computer upon disconnection - Automatically lock the host computer when you end your GoToMyPC connection.
  • Blank out screen while connected - Turn the entire screen of the unattended host cpmputer green or black while you are remotely connected. Note that hardware limitations with your video card may prevent screen blanking on multiple monitors.
  • Lock host keyboard and mouse - Prevent others from using your host mouse or keyboard while you are remotely connected. If you are inputting opposite keys (e.g., caps lock is on when it is disabled on your client keyboard), you should lock your host keyboard and mouse.
