Connect to Your Computer

Access your data and programs when you are on the same network as your computer


Support for establishing a connection between MATLAB® Mobile™ and your computer will be removed in a future release. You can continue using MATLAB Mobile by connecting to the MathWorks® Cloud instead.

By establishing a connection between MATLAB Mobile and your computer, you can access your data and programs remotely. Your mobile device and desktop computer must be in the same network.

MATLAB Mobile and connector are intended for use behind a firewall on a private network. If you plan to use MATLAB Mobile and the connector over the public Internet, via 3G, or via 4G, it is recommended you use a Virtual Private Network (VPN). The following additional security measures are also recommended when using MATLAB Mobile with MATLAB desktop:

  • Use the mobile connector on trusted networks.

  • Use long passwords.

  • Consider using the MATLAB Mobile connection to the Cloud, as it is a more secure connection.
