With a subscription to Parallels Access, you can access your computers remotely from your iPad, iPhone or Android device and from 1 computer to another with a Web Console. You can purchase 1-year subscription from within the Parallels Access iPad app or buy a 1-year or 2-year subscription on the web at If you’ve already purchased a subscription from within the app or you have a complimentary subscription that came with Parallels Desktop, you don’t need to purchase a subscription from the website.

Your subscription to Parallels Access begins automatically when confirmation of your purchase reaches Parallels. This may take a while. With an online credit card payment, typically your subscription is activated within 1 to 5 minutes. If you pay using PayPal or a wire transfer, confirmation is sent to Parallels once your payment is received.

Note: do not double-click on the purchase link until you get the result of your first purchase attempt, otherwise you may be billed twice.

  1. Wait awhile, then visit
