Can I use Remote Assistance without permission?

“My 94-year-old father lives in another State. Sometimes, I really need to connect to his computer. I'm curious if it’s feasible to connect to his computer without having him do anything, such as enter a password or push a button for confirmation? Can I use Windows Remote Assistance to offer help without his invitation and permission ?”

It’s unavailable to use Remote Assistance without permission

Many users are wondering that if they can offer remote assistance without permission using Windows built-in feature Remote Assistance as the one on the other side doesn’t know how to send an invitation file or the one isn’t at their desk.

Unfortunately, the answer is NO! Remote Assistance is used when you need or you wish to give some assistance remotely. The user has to give administration rights to the helper to access their machines remotely when they face a technical issue in their machines.

How to offer remote assistance without permission

Then does this means that you can’t offer remote support without invitation and permission?

Actually, there’s a free third-party remote control software, AnyViewer, which could provide you with an unattended remote connection as it offers a security code connection mode. It’s compatible with kinds of Windows operating systems from Windows 7 to the latest Windows 11. Then, here are the detailed steps on how to use the tool to provide remote support without invitation and permission.

Download Freeware Win 11/10/8.1/8/7/XP
Secure Download

Step 1. Download, install and run AnyViewer on both computers. Here you can see the temporary security code of the computer that can be used to access this PC.

Step 2. On the computer which receives remote assistance, go to Settings > Recipient. Tick the third option. Set the security code you want in the box. Then click OK to finish the set-up process. 

Accept Remote Control

Note: Until now, you’ve got two types of security codes: a permanent security code is set by you in advance, and a temporary security code is automatically generated and will change every time.

Step 3. On the computer which offers remote assistance, input the device ID of the other computer, and then click Connect.

Step 4. In the pop-up window, choose Input security code, and type in either the permanent security code or the temporary security code to achieve remote control directly.

Security Code

Until now, you’ve achieved remote control without permission and can control other computers freely. 

It is worth mentioning that AnyViewer also has some practical functions. After the remote connection is successful, you can adjust the resolutions and image quality according to your needs. You can take operations, such as opening Task Manager to see what is occupying CPU storage, running CMD to fix corrupted file systems, and so on to offer technical support in the distance.



Windows Remote Assistance doesn’t allow you to offer help without invitation and permission. To achieve remote assistance without user permission when they are not sitting in front of the computer, it’s wise to choose AnyViewer, a free & secure unattended remote access software.
