More about droidVNC-NG

The operation principle of this software is based on providing network access to the Android device's frame buffer. It uses automation programs such as Macro Droid, Automate, or Tasker. Unlike many other similar utilities, droidVNC-NG is capable of transmitting client pointer events to the server with text copy/paste processing, support for special keys to access recent apps, and "Back"/"Home" buttons without root access. The program also supports additional server-side scaling.

  • Application resolution selection;
  • Screen rotation support;
  • Secure connection with password;
  • Indication of the currently used port;
  • Running in the background on device startup;
  • Connecting to Mode-2 repeater in Ultra VNC mode;

The developers of droidVNC-NG for Android have paid a lot of attention to security issues. In addition to password protection, they offer a solution of directly sending entered information to the mobile device - without registration, transmission, or storage on external servers. There is also the option to transfer files over the local network when using the Tight VNC viewer utility. Remote control of the mobile device requires activation of the API for special features service.

droidVNC-NG is arguably the most efficient solution in its class for remote access to the screen of an Android mobile device. The program has advanced functionality, does not require root privileges, is released with open source code, and is constantly improved and updated.
