The Truth About Remote Support
Remote support offers a lot of great capabilities and convenience, however it does have substantial limitations. Most tech support claims that just about any issue can be resolved remotely, but this simply isn’t the case.
For example, in cases where data recovery is needed, remote support will actually heighten the risk of data loss. Virus and malware infections shouldn’t be worked on remotely. We’ve provided a short list of situations where remote IT service is great, and some instances where it just doesn’t cut it.
Remote support is a great solution for:
Installing or updating a software applications.
Adding peripherals such as a printer or camera.
Installing the latest security and performance updates.
Removing unneeded applications to boost system performance.
Installing or updating system drivers.
Getting assistance with learning or using a new or program.
Setting up and managing backups to protect from data loss.
Assistance with organizing files and folders.
Resolving conflicts and compatibility issues.
Remote support is not a good solution for:
Hardware problems and/or physical repairs.
Data recovery from any kind of data loss scenario.
Serious virus, trojan or rootkit virus/malware infections.
Damaged or corrupted Mac OSX or Windows systems.
Your privacy and security are critical.
