Privacy Mode for Fluid

Privacy Mode for Fluid blanks out the host machine's physical displays and blocks inputs from physical keyboard and mice attached to the machine. Privacy mode will also automatically lock computer after a user's remote session ends. This is perfect for when you need to remotely work on sensitive documents and media. Great for shared environments and hybrid work. 

To enable privacy mode connect to your machine and click Remote -> Privacy Mode.

Teams users can also enforce Privacy Mode via Connect Settings:

Privacy Mode is currently available when connecting from a Mac to a Windows or Mac machine.

Virtual Displays

Virtual Displays for Fluid lets you extend your remote session beyond the physical limits of your host's displays. You can now create up to 4 virtual displays during a remote session (see below for limitations). 

Virtual displays support arbitrary resolutions and can match your local display layout perfectly. This is perfect for working with multiple monitors without having to worry about how many monitors are attached to the remote host. Virtual Monitors also support Retina mode for extra clarity! 

To get started: 

Connect to your machine, click Displays -> Virtual Monitor and select the number of virtual displays to use. Once virtual displays are engaged Jump will replace the host's physical monitors with virtual monitors. You can resize virtual monitors by simply resizing your local Jump Desktop windows.


Virtual Monitor support currently works when connecting from a Mac or Windows to a Windows 10 or macOS 10.14+ machine. A Teams Enterprise subscription is required to enable 2 or more virtual monitors.

Jump Desktop for iOS 9.7.8

We’re excited to announce that Jump Desktop for iOS 9.7.8 is now available! This new version includes optimizations for iOS and iPadOS 16, Retina support for Fluid connections and bug fixes.

Jump Desktop for iOS is available now from the App Store.

Jump Desktop for Mac 8.8.28

This release includes the following new features and fixes:

Retina Support for Fluid

We've added Retina support for Fluid connections. There are some limitations at the moment thought: It's supported when connecting from a Mac with a retina screen, ideally to another Mac with a retina screen. To get started with Retina mode:

  1. Make sure you're connecting from a Mac with a Retina display and make sure the remote Mac also has support for retina.
  2. After you connect click Remote -> Displays -> Use Retina Resolution.

Please note: Retina mode requires up to 4x the number of pixels and will have a performance impact on connections. You can toggle this mode and or off any time.

Microphone Forwarding for Fluid

Jump Desktop now supports microphone redirection for Fluid connections. Not only can you stream audio from the machine you're connecting to, you can now also send high quality, low latency audio to the machine. At the moment this supported when connecting from a Mac to another Mac. 

To get started with with microphone redirection:

  1. Make sure you're connecting from a Mac (Windows support will be added soon)
  2. After you connect click Remote -> Audio -> Send Audio and select a local device to start recording from.
  3. On the remote / host mac, the audio will play on the Jump Desktop Microphone device.
