I have a LogMeIn account - free version. I have used it to access other computers in the past, but now can't remember how I did it.

Do the owners of the remote PC need to set up their own account, or do they use my details? If they set their own account up, how do I connect to them?

If you are using the free version, you will need to have the Log Me In software installed on the target workstation from your account.  If you move up to the paid arena with Log Me In,  you have the ability to send them an MSI or link that will allow them to install the software without having to deal with being proactive with the client.

Hi they need to download the client and install it, and provid you with the client connect details. Alternatively you can use teamviewer which i think it is better

I've run out of free sessions with TeamViewer!

So when they set themselves up, do they then have to tell me their account details - username, which is usually their email address I presume, and password? Or do they tell some other credentials?

The ID is the 9 digit number and password a 4 digit one (usually).

You should input the ID of the client you are trying to connect to and afterwards you will be prompted for the password.

See the picture attached.

I am not asking for help with TeamViewer - this is about LogMeIn.
