Installation

AnyDesk is a remote maintenance solution for many languages and platforms, can run portable or installed and set up within a couple of seconds. Installation files for all supported platforms can be found in Download section of the AnyDesk web pages https://anydesk.com/en/downloads See also: StartUp and Close AnyDesk for Behaviour of AnyDesk.

For mobile devices the native AnyDesk Android and iOS application is distributed via both Google Play Store and Apple App Store.

For Red Hat and Debian compatible Linux distributions the package repositories are provided and maintained by AnyDesk Software GmbH.

The installation can be also done via Command Line, see also Automatic Deployment

Customers with a Professional and higher license can create a customized version of AnyDesk, called custom client, with individual settings and public link created in the personal web interface namely MyAnyDesk Portal

Note: AnyDesk is capable of running several instances simultaneously, so users can run both default client and custom client at the same time.

Identity

Each client has a unique ID which serves as identity within the AnyDesk network.

  • if AnyDesk is installed, a system-wide single ID is created
  • if AnyDesk runs as portable application, the ID only exists for a particular Windows user account

Users with a license may also change the Alias from via my.anydesk.com.

Note: the ID is created when the AnyDesk is started for the first time. Additionally, users with AnyDesk installed may choose an Alias, see also the Alias article
