AnyDesk 4 review

AnyDesk 4 offers excellent response speeds that will prevent you from falling into despair whenever you have to start a remote session on another computer. It’s simple, intuitive, and fast and maintains the original image and sound quality from the computer that stores the files you want to access.

With AnyDesk 4, besides saying goodbye to all the horrible lag times, you can also forget about the terrible firewall settings blocking remote access by other users. Plus, if you customize your passwords you won’t have to set up everything all over again when you start a new remote session.

How AnyDesk 4 Works

Similar to other remote desktop programs, like TeamViewer and Remote Utilities, AnyDesk 4 uses an ID number to make establishing a connection easy. If you install AnyDesk 4 instead of just run it portably, you’ll be given the option to make a custom alias (like <yourname>@ad)to share with others, which is a lot easier to remember than a random string of numbers.

When both the host and client computer are running AnyDesk 4, they can share the AnyDesk 4-Address with the other and enter it in the “Remote Desk” part of the program to start the connection. The computer that’s sharing their address will be the one the other computer will control.

Set up a password in the settings to enable unattended access. You can also define the permissions remote users are given when they connect to you. Permissions allow them to view the monitor, hear the sound of the computer, control the keyboard and mouse, access the clipboard, and lock the user’s keyboard and mouse input, among others.

To install AnyDesk 4 to your computer, open the portable program and click “Install AnyDesk on this computer…” from the “New Connection” tab.

Conclusion of Anydesk 4


AnyDesk 4 makes the bold claim that it’s the fastest desktop solution in the world, both in terms of graphical performance metrics and responsiveness. This is partly due to the development of its own video compression codec, called DeskRT, designed for the type of images produced by user interfaces and thereby maximising bandwidth and latency. When available, OpenGL and DirectX is also used to accelerate display performance, further improving responsiveness.

By default a direction connection is attempted first, falling back to a mediated connection through AnyDesk’s servers if this isn’t possible as with many of the tools we’ve covered in this category.

Impressively the AnyDesk 4 client is a tiny 1.3M. This is a stand-alone portable program which can executed on both ends, but also doubles as the installer for the client — which simply installs it to a directory and sets up a shortcut. A clean interface keeps it simple, with a uniquely-generated ID for the client machine, a field for connecting via the ID of another machine, and a screen-shot gallery of previously connected hosts scrollable underneath.

Despite its tiny size the program also includes a chat client, file transfer via copy and paste, and can connect to multiple hosts at once, each opening a new tab on the display like a browser.

Encryption is via TLS and AES 128-bit, and other security features include setting permissions for sound and clipboard access, adding a password for authentication, and disallowing unattended access. However, these are about the extent of the security features.

Packages range from Lite to Enterprise, with the Enterprise providing unlimited simultaneous connections and seats. The Professional and Enterprise versions also allow you to setup your own custom name-space for the unique identifiers, such as ‘user@company’, making it easy for users to remember the unique ID of their desktop at work. A web-based management console is also available to view activity reports. Finally, as with some of the other products like Remote Utilities and Splashtop, at the top tier in the Enterprise offering a local server can be setup to host AnyDesk, retaining complete control over end-to-end session brokering and connections.

AnyDesk 4 is still relatively new, coming out of Beta for an official release this January. Currently only Windows is supported with a Linux client on the way and MacOS X, iOS and Android support on the books.
