How to Remove Someone's Remote Access to My Computer

by TS Jordan

Remote access is an incredibly convenient tool when used appropriately, but it can be misappropriated for immoral means in the wrong hands. Removing a user's remote access to your computer is a fairly simple task; if you change your computer's login information, the remote user will no longer be able to access your machine. This is a fairly routine process that can be completed in less than five minutes.

1

Navigate to the "User Accounts" page by going to the "Start" menu and opening the "Control Panel."

2

Click on the option at the top of the screen to "Change Your Password."

3

Input your current password in the first box that appears, then your new desired password in both the second and the third (for confirmation purposes).

4

Click the "Change Password" button to finalize the alteration, preventing the remote user from accessing your computer.
