Teamviewer is a very valuable software tool I have been using for years! The latest version 15.1.3937 seems having an issue. Both sides are Mac OS. Connection was started but the remote window disappeared within a fraction of a second, followed by an Error message box (TeamViewer quit unexpectedly.). Version was in-sync.

Great product but . . . They cut me off accusing me of using TeamViewer "professionally". I was using it to help friends that are some distance away, fix their computers and help install software. NEVER taking any remuneration and would never dream of doing so. These are my friends and many are elderly and need a lot of help. I guess they mistook my frequency of use for being professional. I replied to their eMail explaining my side of the situation. I never heard back. Plus I have been using TV for sometime and over revisions it's getting more convoluted. Beware of your usage. Since the Pandemic a lot of new avenues for this type of software have erupted. Check things out, first.

It used to be my go to software to help family member NO MORE. It has closed me down because it thinks I am doing commercial when I am logged into family computers from my home and they are in their home. Another reason is I can no answer from them about how and why I have been shut off. All I get is are people who are very nice but want to sell me a Business license at over $500 a year subscription. Any suggestion on software that I can use from My iMac to help family? thanks

keeps suspecting me of commercial usage when I'm actually helping families or accessing my home desktop from my notebook in a hotel. I've read the terms, and I'm sure I'm within bound. Filling out the form doesn't help either. And the way it deal with remote wallpaper is brutal.

TeamViewer requires very expensive fees and costs $599 for every year. And when I was looking for an alternative, I found "hideasoft remote desktop", which costs $50 for a lifetime and is more powerful than TeamViewer. It can connect up to 1000 terminals and can support video conferencing. I think this is the only real alternative to TeamViewer. https://order.shareit.com/product?vendorid=200270322&productid=300946015&locale=en_US&currency=EUR&currencies=ALL

Indispensable for occasionally assisting family and friends who live far away and need help urgently, but poor customer service with long delays to emails. I too am getting "Commercial Use Suspected " popups all the time despite having informed them that I am NOT being paid for it's occasional use

Yes, this was a great piece of very functional software, but now all I'm getting is 'commercial use detected', after which it stops working as it should. I've used it for years on a non-commercial basis and as far as I'm concerned nothing has changed in the past two months. Submitting a ticket resulted in a delayed reply that my account has been reset to 'free', but it's made no difference – still get the 'commercial' message and 30 seconds of use time. It's pretty much useless to me now and I'm actively looking for an alternative.

Reason for leaving I have someone hack into my computer and they got in through team viewer. Not too happy about paying $200 to fix the problem I know it's a free account so I can expect anything else to happen. I've been a loyal team viewer remember for the last five years never had a problem until this week.

They emailed me v13 could now be had but it is not yet mentioned at MU.

Ugh - another corporate cash suck move. I've owned a single user license for TV since v 11. $1600 for v11 then only 5 months later I paid $600 to upgrade that to v12. I paid even though I only use this for personal needs - not business. I wanted to support their efforts. NOW - 12 months later comes v13 and they have switched to a "per month - billed annually" method. I have loved the app but like Parallels I DISLIKE their request costly paid upgrades.

I wish Timbuktu Pro had not died - great software and long times between paid updates. Yes, that might have lead to its demise...

I did test the iOS TeamViewer support and did not like that. I want to remote control not WATCH what the iOS user does. Yes, Apple has iOS locked tight. I still find the view only kinda useless.

I discovered TeamViewer a few months ago and was astonished about how easy it is to connect and pilot a distant computer! I had to teach a non-tech user how to copy certain files to certain places and had become fed up of ultra-heavy mails I had to write and he didn't understand... With this software, I directly showed him the moves and could verify with my own eyes that he was reproducing the right thing, so he could not tell me any more "I did exactly what you said" when he actually didn't! ;-) An invaluable time saver!

be advised, that if you decide to try version 12, version 11 guest can not connect to version 12 host. that is true in general of Teamviewer..i.e. the a guest can not connect to a host version that is greater than itself. Also, if you have paid for a license, licenses are NOT lifetime. They do not span across versions, so a license bought when version 11 was current will not transfer to version 12. So you must sure your hosts don't upgrade if you wish to retain use of your version 11 TV to log in remotely.

TeamViewer is a great app, I think. I didn't hear about any worthy alternative. It is irreplaceable when you need to solve your computer issue remotely. I often happen such situations when I need to complete some activation or complete installment. It's better to have this app on a mac just in case.

I've used Teamviewer for several years, great app saves me gas. Recently started to get contact requests from unknown people (decline obviously). There has been some buzz lately about TV getting "hacked" and it even occurred with strong passwords and two factor authorization. I uninstalled it for now. Search around, you'll see.

Probably the most popular and easy to use desktop sharing application. I always use it when my girlfriend has trouble with her computer. Pretty good feature of TeamViewer is record sessions that enables to review the instructions previously given by expert or advanced user. It also allows to transfer files and communicate via chat. I don't see any cons except the limitations of free version.

I used this app several times to help my parents resolve some issues with their computer while being hundreds of miles away. I'd certainly recommend it to those, who need remote assistance in troubleshooting issues on Macs and PCs. Pros: - Free for personal non-commercial usage - Fast and comprehensible - Pretty simple - Cross-platform Cons: - Depends on the speed of the Internet connection - Could have been more stable Bottom Line: A good free application.

Just to clarify, given the number of comments lately about this being a 'free' product. It is free for non-commercial, personal use only. If you are using as a tool related to work, a license should be purchased. No, I'm not the software police, but I have been involved in tech and tech development for over 30 years; and I understand both sides of the coin, if you are a developer, you should be compensated for your work, if you are a user, you want best value for your money, but you shouldn't abuse or steal. If you are in the tech biz and expect people to respect your services and products and be duly compensated, do the right thing, and remember what goes around, comes around. I think TeamViewer's current policy is extremely generous, based on the honor system, and allowing anyone to fully test the product without any functional limits. And it's an excellent product (although early 10.0 versions were a bit rocky, latest are okay and version 9 was very solid and still available for download).

Great product. Great that iti is free. VERY FUNCTIONAL and responsive.
My few frustrations
- on the company site it is IMPOSSIBLE to identify system requirements.
- trying to download v10. Clicking on download kept giving me v9. No explanation. I had to come here and other download sites to identify system requirements (turns out v10 does not run on OS X 10.6.8).
- company website does not give instructions on how to uninstall Mac version, only Windows (I know where to find it now within the software, but info on their website would be nice).
- documentation is a little sparse (but for free that is acceptable).

Otherwise good product

I've been using version 9 for over a year now, (previous user of LogMeIn). Very happy with version 9. Have been testing version 10 periodically on a few systems, every time a new release comes out. Version 10 compared to version 9 on the exact same systems, has not been as stable (to put it kindly). I am confident v10 will eventually settle down, but as of the date of this post, when I really need it to work, I continue to use v9 (on both host and guest).

1.) It's free for personal use. 2.) It runs on OS X and Windows, and 3.) it has (free) iphone and android apps. I don't think there's any other product out there that can make that claim. I'm the tech support guy for many of my friends and family. I used to use Logmein, which IMO is a superior product, but when they started charging (a lot!) for it, I had to find an alternative and it seems that Team Viewer is the only viable alternative at this time. I recently attempted to install it on a brand new 27" retina iMac running 10.10.1. The installer would not work. I opened a trouble ticket and heard back from someone within 24 hours. They had a new build which purportedly fixed that problem. And It did! I was pretty impressed that they were so quick to respond with a solution to a customer that's using the free version of their product. Version 10 seems to be in *very* active development. If you download it from their website, you may find different build numbers from day to day. I have use remote screen control, file transfer, video and audio chat as well as the iOS app. It all gets the job done okay, but it lacks the polish of its competitors. Id give it three stars, but since it remains free while all of its competitors have a substantial cost, I'm adding a star so as to not look a gift horse in the mouth. Thank you, TeamViewer. You have my gratitude.

Totally not working here, keeps logging me out of my desktop and then freezing. Stuck on bouncing icon in the dock. Even doing a kill -9 in Terminal won't kill the processes - just keeps re-spawning. Was doing this when I tried the beta as well was hoping they'd fixed this in the final release, had to uninstall and go back to version 9 again and back to normal. Anyone else having this issue? I'm 10.10.1

I just started playing with this product, and have yet to explore its full capabilities. There are parts of it I really like, and other parts that annoy me. For starters, I'm not real sure why this is better than just using the Mac's screen sharing capabilities (Go To Server: vnc://target.ip.address). On the other hand, I just set up a new network at home, and without knowing it public IP address, TeamViewer had no problem connecting me to my home Mac! PLUS. My major annoyance is that the TeamViewer toolbar collides with the target Mac's menu bar, and I have to make sure I'm clicking beneath it, or I may find myself with unexpected results. MINUS. I can live with the splash / thank-you screen at the end of a session, but it approaches being an annoyance. Given that the company offers this product at no cost, the splash screen seems like a small price to pay for it. NEUTRAL. I haven't yet tried accessing my home Mac from a PC (which I do using TightVNC Client), or accessing a PC using my Mac (which would be handy, since it wouldn't require setting up a VNC "server" on the PC as TightVNC does. Or at least I think TeamViewer would hide that complexity). The other features, such as collaboration and meetings aren't in my needs list, so I can't address them. Thus, I can't give TeamViewer a full review. What I've seen so far is a nice implementation, but not something I can't live without.

Very upsetting that this has been going on for so long now, but for those of us who subscribe to MacUpdate and expect to be able to update TeamViewer via this mechanism, we get version 8 each and every time, which is contrary to what we would normally expect. Please address this issue.

There's a whole lot of options to do with this wonderful program. We can take control of any other computer [of course after it gives permission], our friend's or family's and solve any issue that they are having. Recording the sessions is a brilliant option, since we can always go back n correct ourselves in-case of any mistakes. It also includes the option to chat and share files. And while doing all this it remains mostly stable. Just wonderful! Comes much recommended from me.

If Logmein had been smart than they would make the free version at least one older than the paid version. I used it to look at my iMac on holidays, hospital and such and would never pay for something like this but also I would not care when it had been an older version.

DISCLAIMER: I have NO reason or suspicion or inside information at all to think TeamViewer will discontinue it's free service for non-commercial use. Having said that, this morning, thousands of LogMeIn Free users awoke to find an email from LogMeIn notifying them that the LogMeIn Free service was being discontinued as of TODAY, JAN 21. Anyone logging in starting today will start a 7 day grace period to either switch to LogMeIn Pro (paid) else the Free account will expire after those 7 days. Yes, there is and will be the massive whining and moaning, but in the end, LogMeIn will absorb the PR hit and move on. There was NO prior formal announcement or notification leading up to this, although there were certainly 'warning signs'. (if you think about it, why would they give advance notice, they know they are going to get hammered, so just drop the bomb and deal with it). In a statement to its investors (not users, investors), LogMeIn said: "the rationale is that remote access is a mature market — there’s no need to seed it any more with free accounts." In other words, they used to use the Free model to pull new users in, especially when LogMeIn was one of the few if only vendors offering any free option at all, counting on some % of those free users eventually would migrate to a Paid model, enough so to subsidize the cost of maintaining the free users. But with so many other free remote access solutions available now, that no longer makes business sense to LogMeIn, so why continue absorbing all of that cost for free users who will NEVER, EVER switch to pay. As a LogMeIn user, I'm disappointed of course. But as a professional in this tech field, their decision makes sense. Their costs to support all the free users they had acquired in TEN YEARS, must have been STAGGERING! So to anyone using TeamViewer, one does have to consider if the market will drive TV to the same decision at some point. Does the current market and business model they have allow them to eat the cost of continuing to support a free model? Think about it, up till now, the number of TeamViewer free users may have been relatively small compared to their commercial, but FOR SURE starting TODAY, the number of free users is going skyrocket as many LogMeIn free users find somewhere else to go. I have no idea how many, but the number of free LMI users must have been huge, and they have 7 days to find some other solution. For all you TV users, sorry, but TV is about to get hammered by a large influx of ex LMI users starting today. Let's be real; there are certainly a large portion of TeamViewer Free and LogMeIn Free users who use(d) the product for commercial purposes, that the two companies will never see a dime from. Eventually, LMI couldn't absorb;justify the cost anymore. As the number of TeamViewer free users jumps after today, at what point does the company say "Holy cow! The cost of maintaining these free users is getting too high, and many are former LMI abusers who are never going to pay, even though they use it for commercial purposes. What do we do?" Anyway, i think it is wise that TeamViewer users, FREE OR PAYING, consider that it is certainly a possibility down the road that the free service may be discontinued or modified (do we start seeing in program advertising to support the free?) This effects the paying customers too, absolutely. Guys, SOMEBODY has to pay for those costs to maintain the free users; either the paying customers pay for it in higher fees, or advertisers, or a combination, or it goes away.

... after two times uninstalling Teamviewer and searching for all remaining Teamviewer files (incl. invisible files and folders), restarting the computer and reinstalling Teamviewer again it now "behaves" again normally, meaning that I can put it wherever I want on my hard drive and it still works. Therefore, back to 5 stars for Teamviewer! (PS: It would be so good if Macupdate FINALLY would create a possibility to change one's own postings. This is years overdue in my opinion.)

It appears that the Teamviewer 9 application file has to be located directly in the Applications folder. I consider this to be a big downer. I have literally hundreds of applications on my Mac and have them nicely sorted in folders and subfolders and subsubfolders within my Applications folder. Not to be able to do that with Teamviewer 9 makes this for my from a 5 star application to a 2 star application (and certainly not an application that I would spend $750 on).

Folks, I'm a long time LogMeIn Free user, but lately have become disenchanted due to some bugs with the Mac client version. I'm interested in trying TeamViewer. My question at this time to any users, is there any indication that TeamViewer is sending any "snooping" information in the background? Often with 'free' versions of software, they are free because it is subsidized by collecting user behavior information which is sold to marketing companies. I do use Little Snitch, but the very nature of a product like this requires pretty open access, and you can't really tell what info is being passed (at least I don't have the expertise to determine that). Any use limits on the free version? LogMeIn Free recently went to a 10 max per account, forcing me to divide up clients into separate accounts of 10 or less. I have mixed MAc and Windows hosts. Thanks in advance for any feedback.

I bought a laptop to my 85 years old mom who never touched a computer, doesn't know anything on informatics, and live 2 hours far from my home. With TeamViewer, everything is a breeze: I may explain and show up straight what and how to do, organize and configure her laptop, do for her all the updates... All of this from home! I got an Internet Nanny 2.0! Absolutely satisfied!

Amazing software. I was using the non-beta version on Mavericks this weekend to remote control a freshly formated XP box do all the install/run update/reboot routines and it worked fine. The MU link here was to the same version, so if you want the beta go straight to the developer.

Never had a problem with them until the last OSX release, which introduced a bug that causes TeamViewer to crash every time it closes. Provided numerous information to the TeamViewer support, and after getting two canned responses about WINDOWS client troubleshooting (I had to remind them I was using OSX) and waiting weeks to get a response, they said this was a known issue and no way to fix it currently. So, they don't know what they did between the previous version which didn't crash, and the (previous) current version? Very poor customer support.

Absolutely brilliant App. I look after a large Mac User Group whose members are scattered far and wide. I can now fix most problems from my home and have saved tens of dollars in fuel costs. The latest version now seems to work better with slower connections This is important as several of our members only have ADSL 1. Absolutely indispensable, I use it nearly every day I cannot afford a commercial App so this suits me well.

Something seems to be very wrong with Teamviewer 8. When I connect with Teamviewer 8 to someone who has TeamviewerQS 7 or 8 open I see only a white screen without any content on my end. However, the other side sees how I move the cursor - which means that I am connected, there is just no picture coming from the other end to my computer. After uninstalling Teamviewer 8 and re-installing Teamviewer 7 (which I luckily still have) everything works fine again. The bad thing is that it is not possible to connect with Teamviewer 7 to someone who has TeamviewerQS 8 installed.

On starting up version 8 none of my partners showed - I had to go into Library/Preferences and rename com.TeamViewer7.Settings.plist to com.TeamViewer8.Settings.plist. Importing your previous settings should really happen automatically. If something as simple as this doesn't work then I worry about the more complex stuff ... Also seems to have some trouble quitting (I get the spinning beach ball for quite a long time before it finally quits for good)

I didn't have any problems with updating the full client, but installing the latest version of TeamViewer Host was very dodgy indeed (on 10.6.8 and 10.7.5 Servers). The "Setup Assistent" (note incorrect spelling!) went through a couple of steps and then threw up a window with nothing in it apart from three buttons which did not have any labels in them. I couldn't find any way beyond this step and so had to quite the assistant. After a bit of fiddling I got it running but it clearly needs a bit of attention before it is 100% ready for prime time.

Teamviewer's a mixed bag. One one hand it's amazingly simple. My clients can download a small App and without configuring any firewalls I can remote access their machines and save thousands of miles a year. On the other hand it can be very unstable, freezing the screen whenever there's a large change (such as closing a window) and randomly ignoring most Mac keyboard shortcuts. The file transfer interface has had very little thought put into it, it works but is centred mainly towards IT professionals who know what they're doing. Recently I have been receiving emails warning me that I'm initiating too many sessions, when I only have it installed on two computers and never use them at the same time. Clearly their servers are struggling to keep up with the demand. The £500 I spent on a commercial license is a bit steep, especially considering the pitiful customer support. I sent 3 beta feedback emails through the program & the teamviewer website, each was returned with an invalid mailbox error. I hope I've made back the money on petrol-saved but time will tell.

Yesterday (03/20/2012) installed Teamviewer 7 beta. Today when I started my computer Little Snitch came up with the message "TeamViewer_Service" wants to connect to ping3.teamviewer.com on TCP port 5938" What is happening here? Why does Teamviewer want to connect to anything when it is not running? Developer, please explain! Develeoper, please fix this!

7.0.10692 has a beta tag when I open it. But it is not marked beta on MacUpdate. I really think you guys need to improve the current situation. Please mark betas with a b or another tag in the main listing and headline so the user can differentiate them from the official releases.

TeamViewer is a great product, but the new Chrome browser (currently in beta) has a similar feature already integrated. That means you can remote control any computer that has the new chrome browser.

I was skeptical of TeamViewer at first; being the primary tech support person for relatively computer illiterate family members, each living 80 miles or so away, I'd tried remote access applications before, mostly of the VNC variety, and had been sorely disappointed. Screen Sharing with the Mac and iChat worked pretty well, but not when that family member was clanking along on a G3 iMac and Tiger's version of iChat had never heard of screen sharing. My mom, whilst working from home, had trouble setting something up and the tech support guy from her company had her install TeamViewer. She told me about this and I checked it out, not expecting to see anything but a Windows application, but lo and behold, it worked on nearly every platform. It has since become one of my invaluable tools for dealing with computer issues of those that are not within driving distance, and when setting up a machine for someone is one of the pieces of software that I install by default. It's easy, with no real setup required: start it up, "tell me the numbers" and we're off. While it does have a few shortcomings, none of them are particularly drastic or take away from the functionality of the software. It works, it's free, and that's about all that really matters. AJH

As a private user helping friends and family with their computer challenges I do not have an issue with the price. Its free. I found that it works far more reliably than its competitors at least for Version 4.x. I have recommended it to many other people and am am looking forward to testing this new version.

Ridiculous pricing. If the pricing were fairer for small business perhaps their "Play fair" would carry more weight. Single channel (usable from multiple computers but not at the same time) north of $1000 with stiff upgrade fees per version. In favour: does work, even in the face of old routers and firewalls. Cross-platform. Not in favour: file transfer usually does a spindump. Nasty java interface. No paste in most fields. For Mac user, I much prefer Apple Remote Desktop. Couldn't get Sharetool 2 to work (blech). Slink will work with a bit more coaxing of the router.

Ok so I'm a windows admin during the day and family IT during the night. And While being a windows admin my work machine is a 17" mbp. I have used most of the remote control software out there at one stage or another. Teamviewer was mentioned and I gave it a try. The first use I had for it was a real issue for me. A user without admin rights had a currupt driver issue for both his ethernet card and his wifi. He was over 100 miles away it was 10:30pm and the only way I could get to his machine was via a bluetooth connection on his mobile phone (and gprs). Teamviewer not only gave me fast remote control but continued to do so while i did a 50Mb download of ethernet drivers (thanks broadcom!) I paid for the Business license the next day. I have now been using over a year and have since upgraded to the Premium license and completely stopped using dameware via vmware. Oh and there is a flash based control option so you don't even need to install anything to control a windows or osx machine.

Extremely fast remote control app and multiplatform client as well as server. All is set for a killer app, but there are two drawbacks, both big ones: - The client uses 100% CPU at all times (to be precise, it will take all capacity left on one of the cores on my Leopard laptop). This makes it useless for use with my MacBook, which becomes very hot and drains the battery fast. The server also uses a vast amount of CPU. - The client does not let you scale to full screen, so either you must have matching resolution or see the remote screen in a small Window.

I urgently needed to remote control an other mac from 2 different places. All I wanted was something easy to use and most of all: free. I googled free remote control and there it was. It's so easy to use. And it worked perfectly fine on both sides. There are enough utilities in the free version for you to helpout someone who is not o. The same network. Really, it's the best to me. Thanks a lot!

I have poked around with various VNC applications for several years in an effort to help relatives and friends with their Mac problems. I have tried Chicken of the VNC, Share My Desktop, LogMeIn, JollyFast, VNC Dimension, and Vine. NONE of them were as fast (in fact most were PAINFULLY slow) and as simple to use as TeamViewer. Don't waste you time trying any of these above-mentioned apps; download TeamViewer and your golden. Bob

Is this a peer-to-peer connection or does each client go through servers operated by TeamViewer's vendor? It's not apparent from either the description here at MacUpdate or at the developer's website.
