What does 3 agent sessions provided mean?
For one agent ID, up to three session numbers (verification code, agent number) can be provided. So one agent can access up to three customers' computers simultaneously, providing help via remote support, monitoring, and more. Each customer's PC screen (viewer) will be displayed in its own window, while window size can be change for simultaneous monitoring.
Can one agent support multiple customers?
One agent can support up to three customers remotely at the same time. Click on [Create a session] and generate up to three verification codes. Once remote connection is made, each of the customer's computer will be displayed on separate windows.
Can I login on multiple computers with one agent ID?
Agent ID cannot have duplicate logins, and an alert message will be displayed when an attempt to for another login is made. If the message is ignored and the second login is made, the first login will be logged out immediately from the HelpU program. If remote support was in session, the agent program and customer's PC will also be logged out.
How can I generate an agent ID?
Login as admin to change or create agent ID. Go to HelpU website and login as admin > Program Menu > Manage Account > Manage Agents to change.
How can I run the agent program?
There are two ways to run the agent program:

What are the steps for remote support, for both the agent and customer?
After receiving the customer portal instructions from the agent, either go to the URL or remote support link from your service provider to access the portal. Enter in the verification code from the agent or click the number button to gain access. Then run the .exe file and your agent will remotely access your computer shortly with the message “In Remote Session” on the bottom right corner.

What is the difference between an admin ID and agent ID?
-Admin ID: Account that manages agent ID(s).
Admin cannot directly provide remote support, but manages remote environment setting, edit account information, support history, view statistics and access other management tools.

-Agent ID: Account that can directly provide remote support.
Login on the agent program and generate a session to provide remote support to the customer.
What is displayed on the remote support history?
-Agent info: ID, name, IP, device name
-Customer info: IP, device name, operating system
-Customer support info: remote support start time, remote support end time, remote support duration

*Remote support history can be viewed by logging in as admin on HelpU website >
[ASP Menu] > Statistics > Support History.
What is the difference between the general and private customer portal URL?
The customer portal URL is a webpage used grant access (via verification code or number button) to customers for remote support.

1. Private URL: Private webpage only used by a single client (and their customers).
This page can be customized with your company logo or phone number, while both access methods (verification code or number button) can be used. We recommend placing a link on your webpage to make things easier for customers.

2. General URL: All of our clients have access to this page.
URL is easy to remember, the logo or phone number cannot be changed, and access is only available via verification code.
-Using ActiveX:
What is the difference between using the .exe file and ActiveX to access customer portal URL?
-.exe file method: runs the HelpU program directly every time remote connection is made
Even if customer's PC has blocked ActiveX, the program can still be executed.

-ActiveX method: runs the HelpU program via ActiveX
The program will run automatically after manually running it the first time. If ActiveX is blocked, please unblock this in your settings. By default, HelpU runs via .exe file, but this can be change to the ActiveX method by client request.
What is the difference between the verification code method and number button method?
When you run the agent program, “verification code” and “number button” will be available.

-When only using the verification code method on the customer portal:
Instruct your customers to enter the 6-digit “verification code” given by the agent.

-When only using the number button method on the customer portal:
Instruct your customers to click the “number button” generated by the agent.

The difference between the two is how the customer is granted access to remote support, with no difference in functionality.
Can I insert my company logo on the customer portal?
You can upload the image on the admin page, and if you would like to change the top image on the page, send the image via email ( and give us a call at customer service (070-7126-8686).
How can I change the phone number on the customer portal?
You can change this by logging in as admin on our website > Program Menu > Manage Account > Remote Setting
The number “1” keeps showing up on the agent program.
Agent program numbers each available session starting from 1 in order. This is based on the number of “ready,” status, as “connected” and “terminated” are not counted. If the number continues to show “1,” it's that you only generated one session and verification code at a time.
What should I do if the .exe file does not work?
After entering the verification code or clicking the number button, a window to run the .exe file should automatically be displayed. If this window does not appear, or if you cannot download the file, please give us a call at our customer service center (070-7126-8686).
After rebooting the customer's computer, can I (agent) reconnect to the same computer during remote session?
Use the tools > reboot remote PC function on the customer's menu to automatically reconnect after reboot.
