We'll call you to begin your service ticket – so you don't have to spend time on hold or wait around during a big "service ticket window." Your time is valuable!

Here's what you can expect:

  1. To begin your service, you'll receive a phone call from one of our technicians. So there's no waiting on hold.
  2. Your tech will walk you through the steps to initiate your service session. You'll be online with the tech in almost no time.
  3. Thanks to desktop sharing technology, the tech will be able to temporarily access and view your desktop - and perform a wide range of IT functions. You're fully in control: You can take over the session at almost any time.
  4. Every service session is recorded for your security.
  5. And while the tech is working, you can just sit back and relax. Or take care of some business. It's up to you!

Great question. We think your data security and privacy are essential. You can be confident that our technicians can only access your computer when you log in and request service. Once your service is complete and you log off, we will no longer be able to "see" or access your computer.

And security is always a big part of Tech Support 360 service. We use a 128-bit encrypted connection between your computer and the technician's computer. This sets up a unique, highly secure one-to-one session.

You'll be able to see what the technician is doing on your machine the whole time. You choose to initiate a remote support session and you can end a session by simply closing the support window on your desktop. While your session is in progress you'll see the technician using your cursor to locate and fix problems. At almost any time you can override these actions simply by moving the mouse.

Remote technical support (also known as "online computer and technical support") allows us to remotely view your computer screen and operating system right over the Internet via remote control.

You can even sit at your desk and watch what the tech is doing.

Remote support works through desktop sharing technology. This means that one of our U.S.-based, IT-certified technicians can view and interact with your computer, working to identify and resolve problems or set up you new technology fast.
