What is "Security Code" in AnyViewer?

You can go to "Settings" > "Unattended", enable "Set my security code" and input the security code of your PC.

✍ Notes: 

▪ The security code needs at least 6 digits and the longer it is, the higher the security. it's recommended to use a combination of letters + numbers + special symbols.
▪ Please keep your security code properly and don't disclose it to others. For more secure and quick unattended remote access, you can assign your devices to your AnyViewer account.
