Access Control List


The Access Control List feature is meant for workstations with heightened security demands. It allows to restrict access to the workstation based on AnyDesk alias or numerical id. Non-qualifying connection requests are rejected completely at an early stage.

Using the feature

You can find the Access Control List in the security tab of the AnyDesk settings. In order to activate access control, the security tab has to be unlocked.
Use the  button to add an entry. A text entry will appear at the bottom of the list. Entries can be removed using the button after they have been selected.


Wildcards (* and ?) are supported to match against an alias (pc-1@ad). This is useful for example to restrict connections to a specific company (*@company).
Wildcards do not apply to numerical ids.
