Sometimes we need to temporarily take over your computer to help troubleshoot an issue. Here’s how to enable your Remote Assist feature.
“Remote Assist” is when a Comcast Support Representative takes control over your computer remotely — with your express permission — to troubleshoot an issue. You can restrict our representatives to "view only" access, which means they can see the contents of your screen, but cannot take control of your computer.
Follow the steps below to start a remote assistance session.
