Remote access or remote connection is a term used to describe a device capable of accessing a shared resource. For example, a user may have the capability of remotely accessing his or her company network with their home computer to read e-mail.


You should only give remote access to people you know or that you are sure you can trust. Once someone has access to your computer, they could create a backdoor, or install malware, that would give them easy access to the computer at a later time.
