Starting a PIN Code Session: Windows + Internet Explorer

LogMeIn Rescue is a tool that technicians use to access remote computers and mobile devices. While this guide speaks directly to the customer, Rescue technicians can use this section to understand the end-user experience during a remote support session. “You” in this document refers to the customer receiving remote support.
LogMeIn Rescue is safe and secure. All communication between the customer and the technician is SSL-encrypted.
