RealVNC has announced that its free-to-use computer screen sharing application for Social Media is now available for the first time on Linux systems. The app can be used through Facebook allowing users to share their screen with Facebook friends. RealVNC have also said that Desktop can be used for collaboration, sharing private information and training between others on Windows or Mac.
Desktop works by prompting two people wanting to temporarily share screens by running a small software program that automatically establishes an encrypted connection together through the internet. If either person disconnects, both original clients are automatically deleted leaving no trace of the program or its execution file which stops others gaining access to the screen or computers in question.
