There are plenty of reasons you might need to remotely access a computer that you are not physically sitting in front of. No, I'm not talking about for stealing information or spying on someone; you're on the wrong site for that. Instead, perhaps you are across town and you need a phone number or email address that is only on your office computer. Or you are across the country on vacation when someone needs something else stored on your PC.

There are other reasons too you might need to access a remote computer. What if a friend or family member who lives in another city is having trouble with their computer and you're the one they call for help?
