There are several tools out there that you can use to remotely access your computer. I have actually tried some of them in the past but recurring glitches were their main weaknesses. Instead, Chrome Remote Desktop provides a very powerful alternative to these tools. This is an app created by Google engineers (so no worries about security issues) which enable you to access your Mac, Windows computer, or even Chromebook from another device and right from your Chrome browser.
You can use Chrome Remote Desktop to securely access your files and docs saved in another computer. This app is also great for screen sharing and collaborative work. You can easily grant your colleague a temporary access to your computer. Here is how you can set up Chrome Remote Desktop:
1- Install Chrome Remote Desktop on your Chrome
2- Enable remote access to your computer.
3- Protect your computer with a PIN.
