How to use RDP on Android Device (Smartphone or Tablet)?

You can connect to a remote Windows VPS or Window server on your mobile device. This guide covers all the most common devices including: Android devices: Smartphones, tablets

We suggest using the official Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) app for iOS or Android.
You can find the app by searching your device’s app store for Microsoft RDC.

The guide below uses an Android Device.

Open the Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) app. Select the + and Desktop to add a new connection profile.

In the field PC name, enter the public IP address of your Windows VPS or Windows server. Then, tap Save.

Enter VPS password and tap Connect

Tap the check-mark to save the connection. Now you can open a connection using the new profile. You might see a certificate warning like the one below because the server’s SSL certificate is self-generated. This is OK, and you can choose Connect

The remote Windows desktop will appear on your screen. That’s it! Now you can view and control the remote Windows VPS or Windows server directly from your smartphone. How cool is that?
