We use a set of different tools to provide support to our customers. Please find further information below.

SweepMe! Remote Support Tool

To remotely support you, we provide a tool that is based on the remote access software of RemoteUtilities.


Icon of the remote support tool
To realize a remote connection, we provide a tool that can be obtained via a SweepMe! account. This tool has to be started on the computer that should be controlled remotely.

After starting the remote support tool, a dialog pops up with an 'Internet ID' and a 'Password'. We will ask you for these two numbers in order to create the connection. The 'Internet ID' cannot be changed, but you can renew the password if needed.

After we initiate a remote connection, a message box will be displayed that asks you to enable the remote connection. As long as you do not confirm, no remote connection is possible.
To stop a remote connection, just close the agent.
