Use on two computers?

Hi,

Can I use Air Droid on a second computer and if so how do I go about doing that?

Thanks!

From the AirDroid Security page:
Forbid Multiple Logins


Multiple logins to AirDroid service at the
same time is not allowed. A connecting computer must log off AirDroid
desktop service first before another computer can connect your device.

It's a "security feature"

So if I want to have the capability of using it on any computer its just a matter of signing in online? Do I need anything installed on the second computer? I want to use AD on my home computer and labtop. Thank you,

Yes to your first question and no to your second question.

@miniBill and @HowardHopkinson are right. For security reasons, AirDroid currently only allows connection from 1 computer at the same time. We understand that there are user needs for multiple logins - like what you do with other web services, like Gmail, Dropbox, etc.. We'll carefully think about it. We need to find a balance between security and features.

See the "recent activity" feature on gmail. Very handy from a security perspective in knowing if somebody you don't like logging in to your gmail. Maybe that model would work for AD?

I, too, would find this feature very handy! While I understand the security risk, why don't you just allow users to change their options. Maybe make the default so only 1 computer at a time can sign in, but allow users to check off a feature that allows multiple sign ins at the same time (and perhaps give a warning and disclaimer before allowing a user to do so).

Please allow this feature soon!

I can see why they wouldn't, if they did I would definitely like a notification if logged in elsewhere as I would want to know ASAP if someone had broken in and had access to all the data and features of my phone!
If they did make it possible, would it cause clashes if certain features were being used in more than one place at the same time?

Hi all,
Sorry that AirDroid does not support this because of security and some other reasons :)
