Customer Widget

Zoho Assist’s Customer Widget helps customers establish an instant connection. Users can embed a widget (HTML snippet) in their website to allow customers to join remote sessions directly from their webpage, rather than through an email invitation, link, or the website.

Privacy and security

Technicians providing remote control support to Chromebook users can control their devices only after clients grant permission to their control request. Equipped with a robust network firewall and 256-bit AES encryption, Zoho Assist provides a secure communication channel.
