How to Test Anti Remote Desktop Control for iOS in AnyDesk

Last updated April 25, 2024 by Appdome


AnyDesk facilitates remote access to devices, offering convenience but also potential security risks for mobile applications. To mitigate these risks, implementing Appdome’s Anti-Remote Desktop Control is crucial. This feature ensures that your app cannot be used through AnyDesk, preserving the integrity of user interactions and protecting sensitive data from potential exposure in remote desktop scenarios. This guide walks you through the steps to verify that your protected application incorporates Anti-Remote Desktop Control effectively, ensuring it cannot run in tandem with AnyDesk, thereby safeguarding user interactions and sensitive data.


To test Anti Remote Desktop Control, you will need:

Performing the Test

1. Build an app with the Anti Remote Desktop Control feature enabled.
