Overview

TeamViewer is a remote access app that lets you access other computers. You can use others’ PC like it’s yours.

Upon installing the program, you can control other computers remotely. It's a perfect tool to help a friend in need or if you want to manage downloads at home from your office computer. You can share your PC with other users, create a free account and choose who can access your computer.

TeamViewer has a remote access feature that you can use to work with multiple users, collaboratively. It can be a great virtual alternative if you don’t want to go outside for a meeting or brainstorm ideas among team members.

TeamViewer boasts excellent multi-platform capabilities, a high-security model. It also offers a complete set of remote access characteristics.

The TeamViewer has a clean interface and is easy to navigate. You have a central command bar where you can access different actions easily. There’s a tiny taskbar window that lets users access stuff. You can further see who’s controlling the PC.

When it comes to remote accessing tools, TeamViewer offers a wide range of features. To work with other users, you can use chat, phone or VoIP, annotate the screen, invite others into sessions, etc. You can even record video and audio.

Users can make VOIP, telephone, and video calls and make presentations for quick sharing. Gone are the days of huddling around a PC physically. TeamViewer lets you do everything from your own respective system.

TeamViewer has a robust security model. Each traffic utilizes AES 256-bit encryption and https/SSL, meaning it will be nearly impossible for someone to intercept unencrypted data passed over the internet.

TeamViewer also has 2-factor authentication. If you choose ‘Trusted devices’ to lockdown things, it will add more security to your account. Any suspicious activity will trigger a password reset via your email.

Changelog

Windows version 15.4.4445:

New features:

  • Control TeamViewer Pilot usage and access rights throughout your organization using rules you configure within the Management Console.
  • The possibility to send key combinations such as [Alt]+[Tab] or [Windows]+[R] is now available!
  • When connecting from Linux to Windows, it's now possible to transmit various key combinations: switching the applications on Windows by using [Alt]+[Tab], opening the run command with [Windows]+[R], and so on.
  • The MSI installer now offers the possibility to import the *.tvopt format which is generated when exporting options from a TeamViewer client. The import of a '.reg file is still possible.
  • You can no longer start a direct file transfer to a remote system with restricted folder permissions (like macOS 10.15) without allowing full disk access in advance to prevent the client from becoming unresponsive. Within the session you need at least the possibility to view and control the remote screen on restricted systems.
  • You can now also copy screenshots within a session from the Snip & Sketch tool and paste them on the other side of the connection.
  • A new MSI parameter called "SETTINGSFILE" has been introduced, which allows to specify a path to a *.tvopt option file. This means that the option file no longer has to be located next to the MSI installer as it used to be when using IMPORTREGFILE. This new parameter replaces IMPORTREGFILE.
  • Android devices that are not supported by ARCore can now connect to an augmented reality session. The session will run in compatibility mode (2D).
  • You can now record augmented reality sessions and save them for documentation and training.
  • You can now see the fingerprint of your partner's device in the log files.

Improvements:

  • Usability improvement for the status bar: the connection status is now also displayed at the bottom of the Computers & Contacts list.

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed a copy & paste bug that prevented copying an image from a Windows computer and pasting it to a macOS or Linux computer.
  • Fixed a bug where a file transfer would sometimes get stuck if a job within the queue was aborted.
  • Fixed a bug that caused some tabs to be missing from the TeamViewer window after start.
  • Fixed a bug that caused a black screen after switching to a second monitor, until the mouse was moved.
