I am not sure.
There were at one point I think last year or maybe the year
before people saying that someone used nvda remote to hack their
computer moving round on a forum, but it could have been people
I am unsure if this is still the case but right now saving
passwords saves them clearly in text files and I am not sure if
you can generate a random key or not, maybe you can.
I havn't fiddled with remote for ages now.
I think actually that you can.
Point is there is no encription on the remote and that could make
the addon not secure in sertain situations.
Saying that, to use remote you actually need nvda running on a
system but still.
That is probably the only argument.
There was a thing on size of nvda itself, not everything can be
core because of size.

Agreed. I still don't understand why it is not
added to core. After all we have jaws tandem and no one
complains about it. So why not nvda remote in nvda itself?
This would be useful for us personal helpers too. I hear
that feedback all the time on the phone, or on twitter etc.

This is the beauty of open source software. I
only wish this could be added to the core without non
profits and government people freaking out about it. I'm
beyond happy this is an open source project. The add on,
and the screen reader. I also, of course, understand why
many see this add on as a possible security risk. While I
don't think the same way, I can understand the need for
high security assurance. Could multiple people from the
NVDA community be in charge of that github page so they
could review and merge changes if the developers become
completely tired of it in the future?
