What is cobrowsing?
Cobrowse software lets customers & support agents view or collaborate on a customer’s screen. The best cobrowse software integrates with existing CRMs, VCCs, or other client relationship platforms.
Cobrowsing is a secure way for enterprises to deliver next generation visual customer engagement with very little customer effort.

Cobrowsing Overview Video
How does cobrowsing work?
Not all cobrowsing software is equal. The best cobrowse software pulls a continuously updated feed of screen images from the customer’s machine to create a cobrowsing session with as few security risks & attack surfaces as possible.
Cobrowsing sessions can be initiated by:
Users clicking a button on a website
Users clicking a widget in a mobile app
Support teams sending a direct URL
Escalating via URL from a text chat
Users are asked to verify the cobrowsing session, usually by providing a security PIN. Our Realtime cobrowsing solution uses a 9-digit PIN.
What is a cobrowsing session?
A cobrowsing session begins when a user has confirmed the session with a security PIN. Customers & support agents then view the same screen. Users can even see the agent’s cursor moving or clicking & vice versa.
Customer support agent views can be modified to redact any onscreen data elements. That includes:
Social security numbers
Bank account numbers
Birth dates & street addresses
Pricing or credit score info
After an issue is solved & your customer is delighted, either party can end the cobrowse session.
Cobrowsing sessions can optionally be recorded for training purposes or to meet industry compliance requirements.
Is cobrowsing safe?
Realtime cobrowsing is available as both read-only or collaborative versions. Read-only cobrowsing means support agents are restricted to seeing what users see & cannot add, edit, or delete anything. This is a highly safe setup.
Collaborative cobrowsing lets agents edit fields, type information, highlight text, & more. However, even in collaborative cobrowsing, support agents cannot submit, post, or finalize anything. Only the customer has save or submit rights. This boosts safety & puts customers in control of their support experience.
Recursive Lab’s Realtime cobrowsing uses:
9-digit security PINs
Expiring single-use URLs
Additional backend security
These steps ensure all cobrowsing sessions stay secure.
Built-in redaction of personal information like social security or credit card numbers keeps customer data private. This gives customers peace of mind that their privacy is respected & they are safe to connect with your brand.
When sessions are recorded with our optional Record product, the same data redaction is applied to the recordings. We only ever record the modified agent’s view, so non-redacted versions of customer PII never leave the customer’s device.
