How AweSun ensures your security？
AweSun，as a remote desktop software, always poses great emphasis on security when offering services. We are deeply aware that security should be the priority since it not only protect our users from online risks but also displays our responsibility for every AweSun user.
All AweSun remote connections, as well as integrated data transfers, are secured end to end with RSA/AES (256-bit) encryption to ensure a secure line that is of the same level with the encryption standard used in online banking and multiple sensitive data transfer applications.
AweSun’s Device IDs are automatically generated based on varied hardware characteristics. AweSun servers will check the validity of AweSun IDs prior to every connection. Besides, AweSun offers Passcode protection. You are allowed to change the account passcode conveniently by choosing to refresh or customize your AweSun passcode. This will make every connection much more secure and private.
You can set the connection method by your preference. AweSun supports secure unattended access. When the device is under binding with the current AweSun account, “easy access under bound” is a quick and safe option. Furthermore, there are other two options via system password and independent password. Only partners with the unattended password can connect to your device. Session requests from a third party will be blocked automatically.
