  • You will then see a window notifying you that we are attempting to connect you with a technician. It is within this window that you may be asked to give the technician access to view your screen live and give keyboard and mouse control. The technician will only be able to view your screen if you grant permission.

  • If you receive this window when trying to connect, you will be redirected to our Service Portal where you can search for knowledge base articles to provide information that may help you solve a problem you are experiencing or submit a ticket to request further assistance.
