Downloading and Installing LogMeIn Host Software

Each computer you want to access must be running the LogMeIn host software. In a sense, the LogMeIn host software safely and securely "opens the door" to a computer for a qualified remote user.

  1. Go to the computer that you want to be able to access remotely.
  2. Go to
  3. Log in to your account using your LogMeIn ID (email address) and password. The Home page is displayed.
  4. On the Home page, click Add Computer.
  5. Follow all on-screen instructions.
    Important: If asked to create a Computer Access Code during the download process, be sure to remember the code! You will need it when connecting to the computer. The Computer Access Code cannot be retrieved, but it can be changed directly on the host. See How to Change Your Computer Access Code.

The computer is added to your LogMeIn account.

On Windows, installation also includes the LogMeIn Client, a tool you can use to connect to your other LogMeIn computers.
