2 Easy Ways to Use RDP on Windows 10, Let's Listen!

Geekers - RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) has been a part of Windows since the heyday of Windows XP many years ago. The function of this feature is to provide access to another computer remotely so you don't have to go to the computer's location to use it.

From this alone, you can guess that to use RDP, you need at least two computers that can communicate with each other via a network. One acts as a server, while the other acts as a client to access the server. In this case the server computer is often referred to as a remote PC, remote computer or remote desktop.

On a personal scale, RDP can be used to store and access sensitive files that are too risky to be stored in cloud storage in general. For example, files that are the results of an audit of financial statements conducted by a public accountant or photographs that will be offered by a professional photographer to various news agencies.

On a business scale, RDP makes it easier for every employee to access the company data they need. Collaboration in a team becomes more efficient. Another advantage of RDP is that the risk of data loss can be minimized. If an employee fetches data from the server and then the data is accidentally deleted, the employee can still retrieve the same data from the server.

The advantages of using RDP are enormous, especially if you intend to use it within an organizational setting. Wherever you are, you can always connect to the server. If you are part of a work team, and each team member is in a different location, you and all team members can still share data using RDP.

RDP privacy is also more secure than cloud storage because your data is not in the hands of other parties. However, you also have to be extra careful because RDP has long been a target for hacker attacks. The motivation for the attack also varies. One of them is to earn money by selling RDP login data on the dark web or by using ransomware to demand large ransoms. Once a server is infected with malware, every computer that accesses it is also at risk of being infected with the same malware.
