VNC Viewer for Mac is simple to install and use; just run the installer on the device you want to control from and follow the instructions. If you don't have permission to install VNC Viewer for Mac on desktop platforms, choose the standalone option.
VNC Viewer for Mac, from RealVNC, provides you with instant remote access to your chosen computer; a Mac, a Windows PC or a Linux machine, from anywhere in the world. VNC Viewer lets you view your computer's desktop, and also control its mouse and keyboard as though you were sitting directly in front of that computer.

For each machine you need to control, simply head over to RealVNC's website and download VNC Connect to each computer. Next up, sign in to VNC Viewer on your local machine, using your RealVNC account credentials; from there you will be able to see your computers and connect to them.
With VNC Connect your sessions are encrypted end-to-end; the app password-protects each computer out-of-the-box. You just need to enter the same user name and password you use to log in to your computer.
In order to connect to remote computers, you must enter two separate sets of credentials; your RealVNC account email address and password to sign in, and then the system (username and) password expected by VNC Server to authenticate. It should now be clearer which set you have to enter when.
