As you mentioned earlier that you have a SGS5, it means you have a free Teamviewer QuickSupport license.
Just install Teamviewer QuickSupport, and you can control it from remote. It's as secure as you'd expect. You also cannot remote control it without allowing access EVERY time you connect to it.

Like a teamviewer, but then out of the box/free (without the need to run teamviewer).
