I suggest you ...

        Hi what's progress on this feature?

      • Jaco DHCD commented  · 

        this is a much needed feature. When can we expect it?

        This is an important feature, hopefully work can start soon??

        I am waiting for this too. I can't switch from TW until this is in AnyDesk :(

        Similar to Teamviewer,
        Any Desk should offer the ability to download drivers to the remote machine to black-out the remote screen. Only having the ability to disable user input still allows others to view what you're clicking/doing on your remote machine.
        It's a pain to remember to have to turn off my monitors before I remote in using AnyDesk.

        I need this feature badly. RDP keeps the host locked. We need this ability!

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        when can we calculate this function?

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Would like to get an update too! Just started Anydesk while seeking an RDP solution that can switch off the remote screen

        Can't stress the urgency of this feature, many instances of needing the end user not to see what is going on and common feature on other products.

        I love AnyDesk (new to it) but this is my only major gripe (paying customer)

        I have been blown away with the speed to even be able to remotely view video and listen to audio is way better than I have ever seen. Just get us the blank screen (with custom message) option.

        To show a custom message when connect will us using TM :-)

        It would be nice if you could also turn off the remote monitor to save power just like windows does it if PC is idle. I don't mean, that a blank screen is displayed but that the OS tells the monitor to turn off.

        To extend Richards idea, I would suggest one could
        * Disable the remote screen (black overlay or whatever) and optionally display a custom message or select from predefined ones (maybe customizable predefined messages)
        * Tell the remote machine to turn off the monitor to save power (eventually with a customizable delay). This should also be possible while not disabling the remote screen.

        The screen would then turn black, display a message and turn off after e. g. one minute.
        Now, if someone tries to access the remote machine physically, the monitor would go on, display the message and, if the mouse or keyboard aren't used for one minute, the monitor turns off again.

        Add a logoff on remote pc.
        If you add logoff we will immediately switch from Teamviewer.

        Please implement this as soon as possible. We already use Anydesk in production, and this feature very important for privacy.
