Remote Desktop Manager macOS SQLite data source is ideal for single user in a stand alone situations. More powerful and more flexible than the XML file format, it also supports a few of the Advanced Data Source options like Logs and Attachments.


  • Full connection log and attachments support
  • The Online backup Service is available for this data source

All passwords are encrypted by default by Remote Desktop Manager macOS. You can specify a custom password to fully encrypt the content of the SQLite database.

Password recovery is not possible, the data will be unrecoverable if you cannot authenticate. Please ensure you backup the password in a safe place.

SQLite supports an unlimited number of simultaneous readers, but will only allow one writer at any instant in time. For this reason Remote Desktop Manager macOS does not support sharing an SQLite data source between several users by storing it on a network drive. If you want to share your data and work in a team environment with your colleagues, please use one of the Advanced Data Sources. Please consult SQLite.org for more information.
