GoToMyQB™ installs on a machine that is running QuickBooks Desktop - the host machine. Once installed, it will index the customer and transaction data (sensitive information such as bank accounts are not indexed) and will deploy a self-contained website with a built-in search engine. The website can then be accessed by any device using any browser.
No. To access QuickBooks data, users only need a browser. GoToMyQB installs on host machine that runs QuickBooks Desktop. People who want to access information in the connected Company File will log into a search page that is connected to GoToMyQB.
Once GoToMyQB is installed, authorized users can access QuickBooks data with GoToMyQB from anywhere without needing to configure access to your local area network through one of the standard options discussed in this document. If you choose to use our Remote Access Service, we relay all authorized connections and requests through our Remote Access Service securely from outside your network to your QuickBooks machine. The process is completely transparent to the user but is protected with industrial-grade encryption. This service is hosted by us and is included with your GoToMyQB paid subscription. Please note that even though this relay is hosted by us as a convenience for you, ONLY you and your users can see and access the data. We can never decrypt your information.
If you prefer not to use our Remote Access Service, you will need to configure your own method via one of the methods (or your own) discussed in this document.
