Live Connections Map

LogMeIn has teamed with Stamen Design to visually display a real-time sample of the large number of connections our infrastructure delivers every second of every day, around the clock. Though locations are approximated for privacy reasons (and no identifying information is transmitted to this system) it provides an unprecedented view into the volume of LogMeIn traffic around the world.

A few important things to note:

  • The animations display connections as they happen. When a computer is accessed via LogMeIn, it is likely to show up on the screen in a few seconds.
  • Yes, there are millions and millions of people using LogMeIn, and they do produce a lot of traffic.
  • The approximate location of a computer being accessed and the computer it is accessed from are indicated on the display.
  • Only a subset of LogMeIn's products are visualization-enabled.
  • To preserve your privacy, no potentially identifying information (such as an IP address) is ever sent to the visualization clients. The applications produce their display based on approximate geographic information. Furthermore, a certain percentage of the visualization information is discarded on our servers and thus is not present in the data feed. The lower the frequency of LogMeIn connections in a geographic area, the higher the chance that a connection originating or terminating in that location will not be displayed.

Hamachi for Linux BETA

LogMeIn Hamachi for Linux is a secure VPN client for Linux that offers connectivity to your resources from dispersed environments. Unlike Hamachi for Windows/Mac, the Linux client uses the command line and offers a relatively limited set of features. For details, please visit www.vpn.net/linux.
