Ignore all the haters & negative posts - you don't have to justify posting anything on here. If HUKD allow it, it's good enough for me

If anyone doesn't like it, they should just move on. How difficult is that?

:)...this is older than HUKD :), not really a deal, it's been always like this.

Excellent I can save the scammers a bit of time and tell them I already have TeamViewer installed!

Not sure if the ,'deal' hrre as it's all was free... but a great bit of software all the same so worth the reminder for people

Been using this for years.

Just a note to mention IMO, people should always logon to a windows machine with a password of 8 characters or more.
Unless they are sharing printers and/or files amongst a local group then they should turn off 'client for Microsoft networks' and 'file and printer sharing'
At the very least.

Is this if using this app or just in general?

I would say in general if you are using a windows machine connected to the Internet. At the very least.
But it also adds some slight protection if you logon to the pc remotely: you have to give your windows password

great app!

I have used this free software for many years and its excellent. Very good for providing remote PC assistance to elderly relatives who sometimes struggle with the PC - important when they live 200 miles away as mine do. Just install the software on both machines and it generates a secure code for you to take over operation of their PC via the internet - you can see their screen on your PC, operate mouse and keyboard etc.

It was always free for personal use. Don't see how it's a deal...

I've put 'free' in capitals now in the title (can't add bold or italics or change the size unfortunately)

I tried this earlier in the year to assist family with remote assistance on their mobiles, but it wasn't included in the free version. Is it now free as well?

Yes it seems you can use a phone as a host. I haven't tried it yet but probably the host phone has to agree to personal use

I don't mind good reminders like this especially when it can help people who are new/elderly/disabled etc.
Heat for the poster even if not a deal!

Great application and has been invaluable for me helping family with their computers. Always good to raise awareness for the benefit of those that don’t know

Excellent I can save the scammers a bit of time and tell them I already have TeamViewer installed!

Always been free.

This is fantastic software that I used to use all the time, including with work.

However..

There was a massive security breach a year or two ago and TeamViewer refused to acknowledge it. Eventually they did, but by then the damage had been done. As a result, we had to uninstall it from all our work and personal devices. It'll take me a while before I trust them again, even if I have to use inferior software in the meantime.

Shame this doesn't give you remote control of Android devices - it would help me support my Mum when she is struggling with her tablet

Thanks for this. I remember logmein from many years ago but they don't let a free service anymore. Do you have any that you can recommend?

It does support Android phones.

Just a warning that it is a PITA to install on the newer Ubuntu.

Thanks for this. Hopefully it has been locked down since then. Of course it is potentially vulnerable if it is left running all the time. From the client side, you could use a VPN to access it. There are lots of addiyional features on the host side which could/should be implemented

Unfortunately not. We're made to use Citrix in work instead, which is comparatively rubbish.

I still miss TeamViewer and joking-but-not-joking complain to our IT department it regularly

I just use the built in Remote Desktop on Windows and that suits my needs but I am after something that I can do similar to Remote into my MacOS VM....anyone know if this would this do the trick.....the console screen in from VMWare is terrible and I couldnt find an alternative

Thanks

I moved to TeamViewer when logmein put their prices up.. used the free version at first and now have a corporate license. Great software, and regularly updated and improved

Son of a.......

I managed to catch an unauthorised connection via Teamviewer and reported it with logs immediately approx 1-2 years ago, and they had the cheek to claim it occurred because I was using the same passwords in multiple locations. Gave up arguing the point that the password was unique for my Teamviewer account after a couple of weeks and never heard about this breach which would have explained my experience.

I still use Teamviewer mind, just start it in single use, non install mode whenever I need it and ensure it's closed completely when done, and NEVER left running un-attended.

could you use this as a cheap security camera when you are not home, monitor it from your smart phone ?

Yes, if your laptop camera quality is as good as what you want for your cheapness amount. For example, it is good enough to see who comes into your office to take things away.

I love TeamViewer. Heat added.

Just because something is always free doesn't mean it's not a deal. I don't understand how getting a good, useful item for nothing can be anything other than a deal.
