SimpleHelp Features

SimpleHelp may be simple to set up and to use but simplicity doesn't mean lacking in features. We provide the tools and features you need while ensuring that SimpleHelp is clear and intuitive.

What You Can Do With SimpleHelp

On-Demand Remote Support

Your customers access your support site using their usual browser. And if you like, embed the customer client into your website to make them feel more comfortable without leaving your site.


Share your screen with a few or a few thousand customers and demo your product live. Customers need nothing more than a browser (no plugins!) so mobile devices, phones, tablets, even Nintendo Wii can join in!

Unattended Remote Access

Installing our Remote Access service makes a machine accessible 24/7 without anyone touching it. Automated installation from a help session makes extending or postponing support sessions as easy as clicking a button.


Our mobile client lets you open remote support or access sessions to control the desktop and download files. No plugins required so Android, iOS (iPad, iPhone, iPod...), virtually any web browser on any device.

Self Hosted Server

Control Your Data

Guarantee peace of mind by hosting your own SimpleHelp remote support server to ensure control over your customer's sensitive data.

Faster Sessions and Lower Latency

By hosting your own SimpleHelp server you can be sure that the server is close to your technicians and customers making for faster connections and quicker sessions.
