    • The fact it seems to be running a native Linux binary is excellent, but it also runs in Fedora 25 (which Chrome Remote Desktop still doesn't support) and runs really well. vonneutonFeb 2017 • 11 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • AnyDesk is a great replacement for TeamViewer and while it does not have traditional address book at does store the computers you connect to and you can ever store the password for easy access. Overall it might be slightly less stable than TeamViewer but it improves with each minor version. I have used it over a year and find the speed better than TeamViewer. LelandWhitlockFeb 2018 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Same uncomplicated and simply working remote desktop application as one day was TeamViewer. And at best: Newer versions can connect to older versions - which TeamViewer always enforced to enforce everybody to upgrade. mwildamMar 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • very nice! lightweight, fast, portable, free, and great quality. thats what i was looking for it. Guest • Dec 2017 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Minimal installation required. Fast connection. Does not require to open ports Guest • Jan 2018 Disagree   Agree
    • Stable, and the portable version does not start a bunch of services every time the computer starts like team viewer. barrenowlOct 2017 • 1 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • The free version of AnyDesk does not allow you to store a list of remote computers that one regularly connects to. Also, there is a 15 hour per month limit on connect time. That's way too restrictive. Otherwise it seemed like it was going to be perfect. Guest • Oct 2017 • 4 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • An excellent alternative and great competitor in the Remote Desktop market. They have a pretty solid architecture that easily competes with strong competitors. It is still in beta and have come across some bugs, but nothing to stray me away. I am willing to bench test and provide excellent feedback.

    • TeamViewer is much more than just a remote desktop connection, unattended access for example. Guest • Nov 2015 • 25 agrees and 22 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It uses VP8 to stream your desktop which makes it more responsive and improves quality. 914ian914Feb 2018 Disagree   Agree

    • This is the best alternative to TeamViewer for those on a budget. Does pretty much everything TeamViewer can, with the exception of needing to open ports in your firewall. Since you can specify ports, it's not as vulnerable as one would think, simply use non standard ports and a very strong password. Guest • Apr 2017 • 6 agrees and 9 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Only windows support. Only a single user can use it once a time and it is slow Guest • May 2017 • 2 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree

Meh.

Comment by Taigar2073
about TeamViewer · Sep 2016 · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

Ever since the breach to TeamViewer's security, and how long it took them to acknowledge the problem, and how they even handled the problem once they finally did acknowledge it, I've been trying to find an alternative.

I may just bite the bullet and pay LogMeIn for a personal account.
VNC is super insecure as is RDP.
I've used NoMachine in the past on my Linux boxes and it works smoothly once configured - but I've never ran it on my Windows PC's.
The other problem is if I am on the road and my wife tells me there is a problem, remoting in isn't so easy without opening a bunch of ports on your router/firewalls.

Try Ultravnc with NoIP. (Wife-friendly & much more Secure than any other commercial-junk on the market which say: "Secure&FreeJust4UbelieveUsWeDoCareYourPrivacy&ItsEz")

  • A bit harder to setup than a commercial-junk software BUT if you do care security look no forward, worth it. If it still too hard 4U, just throw your money out of the window for these kind of junk-software, it is your problem.
  • For Linux: SSVNC what i recommend (also works on windows but i prefer UltraVNC for that).

not so good

now they are basically forcing you to pay, i don't like it anymore, i'll start looking for a good alternative that has a free version. I think they are taking advantage of the users and the fact that it has some many right now.

No Stealth/Silent Mode

Comment by TBayAreaPat
about TeamViewer · Nov 2015 · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

Seems to work well, but I was used to LogMeIn before it went free, and this doesn't seem to have all the same capabilities.
No Stealth/Silent Mode that I can find.. pretty obtrusive.

reply

They deliberately make it that way because they want it to be a helping tool rather than a spying tool.
