Change Your Access Code

Your access code is a unique password that you create when you set up each of your host computers. It is stored only on your computer and never transmitted over the Internet.

For security reasons it is important that your access code be different from your account password (which is the password you use to log in to the GoToMyPC website). If you do not know your access code, you must be physically present at your host computer to reset it.

Note: If you are a GoToMyPC Pro or Corporate user, your administrator may require you to change your access code on a regular basis.
