TeamViewer Reviews | Complete ‘free’ remote connection software

TeamViewer is powerful, free for personal use, and easy enough for people with no special IT knowledge, remote connection software for PC. I received feedback that it was very useful to use it with my acquaintances and relatives who have difficulty with computers.


Features of TeamViewer

As with all remote control software, TeamViewer lets you log into another computer and use it as your own. If an older relative is having trouble logging into their bank account, have them download, run, and install TeamViewer, provide their ID and password, and they can log in and explain. Or you can easily solve the problem.

By logging in with TeamViewer and configuring your computer for ‘unattended access’, you don’t have to repeat the download and installation process or share your ID and password. As the name of the feature ‘unattended access’ suggests, you don’t even have to be in front of a computer. If your computer is running, you can use TeamViewer right away. If you are concerned about security, you can disable unattended access. For added security, TeamViewer provides an option to run the program only for a single session when running the installer.

Controlling a Windows PC from my MacOS

You can usually see the desktop of the remotely controlled computer in the window of the device you control. You can refer to the options displayed at the top of the window. The person being helped opens a tab in the lower-right part of the desktop, letting them know that someone has logged into the device remotely. The desktop wallpaper also turns black. The person being helped can end the session at any time.

TeamViewer can also transfer files, have a chat function, and support multiple displays. Once you create an account, you can keep track of all the computers you log into. If you don’t have an account, you just need to remember your ID (which usually doesn’t change), but you need to know which ID is which account. TeamViewer also started supporting conferencing after the pandemic started. It provides remote video in the same way as Zoom. TeamViewer is available for Windows, macOS, Linux, iOS, and Android. You can control almost any device from almost any device.

teamviewer interface

TeamViewer’s interface is clean, simple, and easy once you get used to it. However, a problem that has repeatedly appeared when connecting with TeamViewer is that the user of the computer accessing remotely cannot find the ID and password immediately.

In fact, the bold blue element draws attention to the right column, especially ‘connection’. Users who use it for the first time will inevitably be drawn to this button. I am used to this kind of situation, so when I feel hesitating, I clearly explain it as ‘the middle column’. There are separate controls and accesses in the left navigation pane, if you let the program remember the last section, both will always see only the relevant options.

TeamViewer’s price, plan, and performance

TeamViewer is free for individuals. That said, TeamViewer developers aren’t Google with the gold mines of search engines, so they benefit from corporate and large contracts. If you’re a small business or IT department that needs remote control, we recommend using a TeamViewer account. In particular, if you are a company that needs remote access, it will be difficult to find a better means than this.

TeamViewer is free for occasional personal use. Please don’t abuse it. If you use the program too often, you’ll see a dialog suggesting a paid version. I don’t know what will happen if I ignore this ‘warning’ since I have no direct experience, but it certainly appears to be some kind of telemetry between the enterprise and the user. In fact, at least in the initial communication, you need to go to TeamViewer’s portal to change the communication path according to the ID involved.

I’ve used TeamViewer hundreds of times over the years and it’s always worked flawlessly. As his internet speed got faster, it was surprisingly easy for him, and he used Team Viewer to transfer files and help his family and friends. In addition, when used in a local network, when the ID is exchanged, TeamViewer finds the shortest path, so most of the data never moves out of the LAN, so the control speed is very fast.

TeamViewer is free, but the company checks the usage and opens a window like this.

The easiest and most complete free program

TeamViewer is free and easy to use for personal or intermittent use. It’s easier to configure than VNC and Microsoft’s and Apple’s remote desktops, so I use it often when I need to temporarily support my acquaintances. It’s not fully featured, but Chrome Remote Desktop is a strong competitor.
