Hi ,
Welcome to


Iyogi is a perfectly valid and legal company.

Because it's based in India, the online PC support service iYogi gains a big advantage over competitors: cheap labor. As a result, it can charge bargain-basement prices.

Here are the facts:

  • Pros

    Low cost. Good availability of technicians. Service's remote-control software can regain control after reboot. Friendly, polite staff.

  • Cons

    Less thorough service and diagnostic tools than those of firedog or HiWired. No Mac or Linux support.

  • BotXXXXX XXXXXne

    iYogi is the lowest-cost service I've tested, and it delivers support 24/7/365. But to get what your PC needs, you have to know the right questions to ask and be willing to ask them.

Hope this clarifies your doubts,

Regards.

Thank you for reassuring me of their work I have been using IYOGI for the past year and have had no claims of misuse of my information that my computer has in it they are very polite but hard to understand because of their local and accent but they're work and such is very good. It does give me a sort of relief they're rated as a good source.
Expert:  lifesaver replied 3 years ago.
Ya..It is bound to happen as 90% of the i-yogi technicians are from India.

Their work is very good though and they are reputed for their cheap labor.You can continue using them.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents.
