Mikogo Overview

What is Mikogo?

Mikogo is an easy-to-use free screen sharing solution that provides a fast and secure solution for web conferencing, online meetings, remote support, webinars, sales calls, web presentations, and more.

With high-speed desktop sharing capabilities, Mikogo allows the presenter to share their screen (including any document or application) with their meeting participants live over the Web in real-time. Anything the presenter can see on their screen, the participants are able to view remotely on their very own screens.

There are many features included with Mikogo as a free download. Businesses benefit by upgrading to a business account with further features.

Security is of a high standard, employing an industry-leading AES encryption, along with several other security measures.

A quick and straightforward setup means that Mikogo is suitable for all users, from the average computer novice to the more advanced user.

Not hard to use but don't look for support

I had been using Mikogo for several years now and most of the time it worked fine for my purposes. Specifically, I conduct remote enrollment services and need the software to run on any platform (ie. Mac & PC). I never have more than one participant besides myself in the conference. I also need to be able to transfer control of the mouse and keyboard for remote signature. I need to be able to transfer documents via secure file transfer or FTP and the software must be HIPAA compliant. Mikogo ran fairly well for me unless I had a Mac participant. In those cases, I found I was not always able to transfer mouse and keyboard control and unable to transfer documents. Recently I purchased a new laptop and when I ran the software from this PC, I could not find any documents to transfer even though they were stored locally on my PC. When I tried contacting support, I was unable to reach anyone by phone or chat and my emails went unanswered. I was given no other option than to drop my subscription and look for another service. Shame on you Mikogo, for selling a product in this country without any access to technical support.

Not as slick as Zoom, or Webex, or.......

I stopped using this product during my first year subscription for the above mentioned reasons. I was a month past the anniversary date requesting cancellation. They were very aggressive in their collection efforts and ultimately I ended paying for most of a second year. Beware agreements that auto renew and DONT accept non payment as cancellation. I was using Webex, which was overall a better product, but more expensive. After Miko I switched to Zoom, which is a MUCH better product, far easier for non members to be invited to and join screen share sessions.

Automatic renewal cancellation

Trying to cancel automatic renewal was impossible, as if they tried to make it as hard as possible to leave.

Mikogo was my first experience with screen sharing apps and softwares. It started off good but overtime I had to move on to other services. They have a great product but not great support.

Pros

I was referred to this product by a colleague for collaboration on a project we were developing jointly, since he was familair and I'm a power user, it worked well for this porject

Cons

Its a little klugey - scheduling tool is tedious, inviting viewers even more so. The invited end user onboarding is a bit confusing and many of my clients would struggle to join a conference.
