bVNC: Secure VNC Viewer


Please support my hard work and GPL open-source software by buying the donation version of bVNC from Google Play. You can use this fully-featured version of bVNC for free for as long as you want with no strings attached.

If bVNC doesn't work for you, please report the problem through the “Send email" button in Google Play before writing a review. See below for setup instructions for Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.

If you need an RDP application, please search for bVNC's sister project aRDP in Google Play. In addition, a SPICE client named aSPICE is now part of the same project. Finally, if you are an oVirt, RHEV, or Proxmox user, you can check out Opaque VDI on Google Play as well.

Can't disable clipboard sharing Really annoyed that there's no option to disable clipboard sharing. I consider this a security issue so really needs to be optional.

Best VNC client for Android Fast, responsive, stable, and everything works as expected. Oh yeah, and it's free software, yet still better than the proprietary alternatives I've tried... The simulated touchpad is one of its gems, and overall, input works better than with any other remote control app I've used on Android. There's easy access to modifier keys which makes most operations simple enough to perform with your software keyboard of choice. For those situations where you do need to use other keys, there's a dialog for that, or you're free to switch to another keyboard (like Hacker's Keyboard) temporarily and then switch back. The built-in SSH support is a great touch, and it's an essential piece if you'll be accessing a server over the internet. It saves having to use another application to accomplish the encryption. I wish all apps were this useful.
