Screen Sharing and Remote Access

Screen sharing and remote access could be granted through a few different mechanisms, including the Chat application. We need a design for what the system integration parts of this will look like. For instance: what happpens when someone tries to gain access? How do we indicate when screen sharing is active? How do we allow a user to revoke access?

Designs for the System Settings part of this can be found in the sharing panel page.

Use cases:

  • Show a cool thing you are doing to a friend
  • Remote support by an ISP or corporate help desk
  • Remotely access your own device to start a download

Potential functionality:

  • Grant/deny access to people seeking to access your machine
  • See if remote access or screen sharing is active, and who is accessing
  • Revoke access.
