Remote computer access warning


Recommended Posts

I received a warning that a computer is trying to access my computer via Google. Is this a threat or am I misinterpreted the warning? I blocked access but I believe this has been going on for at least two years. How do I investigate this other computer? Location? Owner? Can I attempt to access their computer to find out who they are?

Thanks Marcos. Whats your opinion on the origin of this computer. Does this event sound nefarious. Is there a way to determine the location of the other computer? I have reason to believe someone may have been trying to gain access to mine.

I would first check if this Google app has been installed. If so, you can remove it as follows:

Remove Chrome Remote Desktop

On each computer where you want to remove Chrome Remote Desktop access, remove the app:

Go to Control Panel -> Programs -> Add/Remove Programs.

Find the "Chrome Remote Desktop" application.

Click Remove.
