LonelyScreen is a free and simple receiver AirPlay for PC. With its help, the contents of the screen iPhone or iPad can be broadcast to the computer screen from Windows, and there is no need to install an additional mobile application.
First, download LonelyScreen and install it on your computer.
If you have an antivirus installed, a window may pop up during the installation of the program, where you will need to mark the types of networks with which LonelyScreen can interact. We do not recommend choosing public networks as they are not very secure.

If the antivirus window pops up again, select Yes so that LonelyScreen can receive information.
