    A friend of mine would like to screen share, but we no longer use Skype, and my friend refuses to use join.me because he believes what his browser says about it being harmful and he becomes snarky about not using it.
    Is there some sort of software that my friend can use that he can trust, because there's really not a lot of options out there.

    Are you using Windows, Mac, or Linux?

    TeamViewer is your best bet

    Teamviewer is your best bet. Windows Remote assistance is just too much to set up.

    The built in remote assistance isn't that good imo. I think teamviewer is best for it. Just need to have a nice internet connection and done.

    That's the only software i could think, really. But i think it perhaps can be used to screen sharing as well
