Choosing how to handle sessions when an unsupported OS is detected

It may happen that customers using an unsupported operating system try to start a Rescue session. Administrators have two options available in the Administration Center on the Global Settings tab under Unsupported customer OS > If an unsupported OS is detected:

  • Start Instant Chat session – Place the customer in an Instant Chat session.
  • Do not start session – Show the customer a message explaining that they cannot start a session because they are using an unsupported browser.

All devices running a supported platform can be supported by technicians with the LogMeIn Rescue mobile add-on. For details, visit this page: https://secure.logmeinrescue.com/helpdesk/mobilesupport/overview.aspx
