Change connection name

By default, Connect will display the Computer Name as the connection name.

You can change the connection name in OffShoot > Settings > Connect > Computer Name.

Revoke access

An OffShoot user can revoke access to Connect by clicking the Revoke Access button in OffShoot. This cancels all connections to the Connect site and creates a new Connect Code.

On the Connect site, you can delete a connection to a device by hovering over the device listed under Connections, then clicking X next to it.


With OffShoot Pro, there's no need to Add new connection's with a Connect Code since:

  • Enable Connect will be toggled ON by default.

  • OffShoot automatically adds your device's connection to the Connect site.

  • You can log in to the Connect site using your email address or license key.
