How it Works

Pro is all about remote access. All you have to do is create an account and install a host app to the computer that you want to access.

It begins with having a dream.

To be in two places at once. To use your computer, phone, or tablet to control a computer that is somewhere else.

Step One. Sign up for a LogMeIn ID.

Go to and create an account by signing up for a LogMeIn ID. You'll use this ID to sign in to your remote access product, Pro or Central. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Step Two. Install the host software.

From the computer you want to access (the one that will eventually be "somewhere else"), log in at On the Computers page click Add Computer and follow the on-screen instructions. You've just installed the host.

Step Three. Connect anywhere, anytime.

Leave your host computer (you know, the "somewhere else" computer) powered on and connected to the Internet.

You are ready to connect from almost any device.

Connect from a PC or Mac
  • On a different computer, go to and log in with your LogMeIn ID and password.
  • On the Computers page, click the computer you want to control.
  • Log in with your computer user name and password. See How do I Authenticate my Session?
  • That's it. You're in two places at once. Magic.

Connect from a phone or tablet

Download the client app to your Android or iOS device and connect. Search for LogMeIn in the App Store (iOS) or Play Store (Android).
