VMWare Horizon Client

This post was originally published on this site

I have a question about this client.  When installed on a PC and connecting to a VM via this client, does the VM holder (or company in this case), are they granted any special priveledges to alter or modify any of your system settings?


I ask because during this pandemic I have been issued a laptop with the client installed. However, I prefer running my own personal desktop and was given the choice to install this client and connect to the VDI this way.


My concerns are:

– activity monitoring (when using my local machine, not through the VM)

– removal of applications (again, on the client not the VM)

– any sort of wiping or administrative privileges granted to the client to perform such operations over the client (in this case the Windows desktop running the client).


Thank you.
