Software update: AnyDesk 4.2.3




Version 4.2.3 of AnyDesk for Windows has been released and slightly more than a week ago also version 4.0 for Linux. With this program, developed by former employees of TeamViewer, another computer can be taken over to manage it remotely. The program is available for Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, macOS, Android and iOS, although not every platform is on the same version number. It is free for home use, commercial use can be settled on an annual basis, or immediately for a period of six years, which reduces the total cost. It does not matter how many updates come out in the meantime. The changelog of the last few versions looks like this:
