How can I remove a Host from my Host List?
At times, you may wish to remove a particular Host from your Host list. You may either contact your organization’s MobiKEY Administrator or the Route1 Network Operations Support team to have the Host name removed from your Host list, or manually remove the Host from the Host UI:
- Open the MobiAgent UI on the Host computer you wish to remove from your Host list.
- Select the Manage Users tab. You will be prompted for the MobiNET password associated with the Host owner.
- Select the MobiNET ID of the Remote you wish you remove authorization for from this Host computer and click on the Revoke button. A confirmation pop-up will appear to ensure you are ready to remove the association between the Host and Remote.
- Once the process is complete, you will no longer see this Host on your Host list.
Can I use multiple monitors?
The MobiKEY Technology supports multiple monitors on the Host computer.
For MobiKEY and MobiNET Agent versions older than version 5.2:
The Remote asset currently only supports a single monitor. During your data session, you may switch between your Host monitors by selecting the corresponding monitor icon from the MobiKEY Taskbar. For example, if your host asset has 3 monitors, the taskbar will display 3 monitor icons labelled 1, 2 and 3.
For MobiKEY and MobiNET Agent versions 5.2 and newer:
The Remote asset supports multiple monitors when using the new V2 protocol available in version 5.2. and newer. Furthermore, when using the V2 protocol, there is no need to use monitor icons on the MobiKEY Taskbar to switch between monitors. The Data Session window will span across all available remote asset monitors, effectively extending the display.
I want to install the Host on a Mac OS X computer
The MobiNET Agent software is currently only available for Windows OS computers.
I have received a replacement MobiKEY Enabling Device, what now?
If you have received a replacement MC3 device, you have two options as to how to proceed:
- Register your MC3 device. During this process you will be issued a new MobiNET ID, and you will pair your new MC3 to your existing Host computer. You will require the password of the MobiNET ID that had originally installed the Host software to complete the pairing process.
- Uninstall your current MobiNET Agent on your Host computer and proceed to Register your MC3 device and add Host. This will install the MobiNET Agent software on your Host computer again, but will not require the previous account password. The newly installed MobiNET Agent software will be linked to your new MobiNET ID. NOTE: uninstalling the existing MobiNET Agent will automatically revoke existing Remote pairings to this Host. If there are any other Remotes paired to this Host, one the new installation is complete, each Remote will need to be paired again.
MobiKEY Fusion / MobiKEY Fusion A2T/TAC
If you have received a new MobiKEY Fusion/MobiKEY Fusion A2T or Tactivo device, you may simply start using the device with your ID card. Your MobiNET ID is linked to your ID card, and not to the device itself.
How can I update my MobiKEY Enabling Device and Host?

I am experiencing latency with the MobiKEY data session
Latency can be caused by limited network bandwidth being used by your remote device. To reduce bandwidth usage, first launch MobiKEY then login. After you’ve logged in, click on “Settings” on the top right. Then click on “Host Session” on the left hand side. On the right side, you will see numerous options. Click on the “Display” tab. This will give you access to settings such as Color Quality, Limit FPS and Compression Speed. If you’re experiencing latency, try the following:
- Lowering the Color quality to 5:5:5
- Lowering the Limit FPS to “10fps” or lower
Under the “Effects” tab near “Display,” a few desktop options can be disabled to increase your session’s performance.
- Set “Desktop Wallpaper” to “Off”
- Set “Desktop Peek” to “Off”

Everything in my data session appears tiny (especially on my Surface Pro)
If you’re experiencing this kind of behaviour, it’s typically because your remote asset’s desktop resolution is upwards of 1440p or higher. If you’ve used zoom to make your icons on the remote asset bigger, this zoom will not take place during a data session. To fix the size of the icons in your data session so that it matches your remote asset’s display settings, do the following:
- Go to “This PC” or “My Computer” (for Windows 10 or Windows 7 respectively)
- Find “DVD RW Drive: MobiKEY” under “Devices and Removable Storage”
- Right click on it and select “Explore” or “Open”
- Double click on the “bin” folder
- Locate “MobiKEY.exe”
- Right click on it and select “properties”
- Click on the “Compatibility” tab
- Find “Change high DPI settings” at the bottom and click on it
- Click on the checkbox at the bottom under “High DPI scaling override”
- When the drop down menu under “High DPI scaling override” becomes active (after being greyed out), click on it and select “System (Enhanced)”
- Click “Ok” twice
- Launch MobiKEY
