Yes our 'Instant Support' software uses military grade encryption (4096-bit RSA and 256-bit AES secures all data for every session, and all data collected during monitoring.) to ensure that any remote support session is completely private and cannot be intercepted or view by any third parties. 

Furthermore our software will only connect with us, so you can be further assured that you are dealing with who you think you  are and not somebody pretending to be us.

No, the version of our 'Instant Support' software that you download will only run when you choose to run it.  It does not run in the background and when closed it stays closed until you run it again.  
No, once the session is closed we cannot re-connect unless you run the 'Instant Support' software again.  This means that we cannot see or access your computer again and you have total privacy.
