TeamViewer Commercial Use

Update – 9/6/2018: We’ve heard from many former TeamViewer users that are switching to Splashtop tell us that their TeamViewer stops working after 5 minutes. Don’t upgrade to TeamViewer’s expensive commercial plan, switch to Splashtop and save!

We’ve heard it a lot the last couple weeks. A TeamViewer Free user has their remote session timed out after a mere few minutes and a popup shown to them stating that they were suspected of using TeamViewer for commercial use. TeamViewer users have complained that their sessions automatically disconnect after a certain amount of time. They have taken to social media and forums to complain that they find the limitations annoying and counterproductive.

Faced with what they see as limited session durations and limits on reconnecting, users have said that they feel TeamViewer is trying to push them to upgrade to a commercial plan.

 “I have been in IT for 20 years and I know a good product when I find one. From a support perspective I could not have asked for a better tool. I get in and get it done. [Splashtop] is awesome and it’s reliable as all hell. After using TeamViewer this program rocks its socks off. You are reasonably priced as well, with TeamViewer wanting everything including my first born. I love the product and have recommended it to others I know in the industry.” – Stuart Livingstone.
