Testing Anti Remote Desktop Control for iOS in Zoom

Last updated February 27, 2023 by Appdome

This Knowledge Base article provides instructions for testing Appdome’s Anti Remote Desktop Control protection in Zoom, on iOS devices.


The option of having remote control can only be explicitly given by the participant who is screen sharing with the Zoom desktop client. Therefore, a person who joins a meeting on an iPad or Android device cannot request remote control or give it. For details, see Zoom Support website.


To test Anti Remote Desktop Control, you will need:

  • One (1) iPhone device
  • One (1) Macbook
  • A mobile app (.IPA for iOS)

Performing the Actual Test

To perform the test:

  1. Build an app with Anti Remote Desktop Control and
    Block Suspicious Accessibility, as seen below.

  7. On iPhone, tap Share and then select (tap) Screen.
  8. Tap Start Broadcast.
    You should see the iPhone screen on your MacBook.
