    • TeamViewer is much more than just a remote desktop connection, unattended access for example. Guest • Nov 2015 Disagree   Agree
    • Definitely an alternative with RDP features Guest • Sep 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • It's the best alternative but lacks many of the features found in TeamViewer. If you're on a budget though, this will do in a pinch! ken_belangerJan 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Chrome Remote Desktop is a good alternative to windows RDP but is not an alternative to TeamViewer as it is lacking in features as well as the unattended access TeamViewer has. Guest • Jan 2017 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. Guest • Aug 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • 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 Disagree   Agree
    • Because it is the most similar to teamviewer and generally technically superior ryangreenApr 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Best free remote desktop software on the market. Works exceptionally well with low bandwidth connections and supports the usual features, like file transfer, clipboard and reverse connections. nomMay 2017 Disagree   Agree

    Free Windows

    • Works only to Windows computers, legit alternative but it's more complicated to setup with firewalls and stuff. Guest • Jan 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • Only windows support. Only a single user can use it once a time and it is slow Guest • 7 days ago Disagree   Agree
    • Both Teamviewer and RDP do the same thing which is to connect from one computer to another. However, Teamviewer is more powerful in terms of more features. Guest • Jan 2016 Disagree   Agree

    Open Source Windows

    • 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 Disagree   Agree

    TightVNC is a free remote control software package. With TightVNC, you can see the desktop of a remote machine and control it with your local mouse and keyboard, just...

    Open Source Windows Linux Windows RT BSD

    • TightVNC requires server configuration and port forwarding. Too complicated for the average remote client who uses Team Viewer for remote support. Guest • Oct 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • Does not offer easy to use access. Need to run server.. open ports, know IP addresses. Guest • Sep 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • Free and opensource, on all major platforms. can be used with VNC viewer on Android which is also is free what else one can ask for! Guest • Oct 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • For users who know what they are doing TightVNC is a great way to control systems remotely. ChaosDropApr 2017 Disagree   Agree

    Open Source Mac Windows Linux BSD

    • Unlike TeamViewer, it's not a centralized solution, dependant on servers owned by some company that might go out of business eventually, and contrary to what some people say, setting up VNC connections isn't complicated at all (inside the same subnet it's trivial, across NAT-ted subnets it only requires some port forwarding, voila, done). TeamViewer-like software should be taken into consideration only by computer-newbies in my opinion. AtoshiDec 2016 Disagree   Agree

Version 9 not longer availlable (Pro users)

Negative Comment by Bricolas
about TeamViewer Dec 2016

Since the last v.12 update of this week, the version 9 is not longer available on the TV website.
If you are running both versions on your PC (9 & 12), don't update the 12 before doing a copy of the TV9 installation folder.

This note is of course for TV Pro versions. For free use TV12 should be always the best solution.

about TeamViewer and Chrome Remote Desktop, Microsoft Remote Desktop Nov 2016

I was recommended this software by my friend. It is free, good for my business and personal purpose. Don't go for any paid apps before using this. I would suggest using this without any hesitations! Better than Microsoft Remote Desktop or Chrome Remote Desktop.

Meh.

about TeamViewer Sep 2016

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.

Update cycle of 6 months making life time purchase useless.

Negative Comment by funvill
about TeamViewer Jul 2016

Beware of this product.

After the first ~7 days of using the TeamViewer product, they will cripple the product and do there very best to annoy you into purchasing it. Once you purchase there "life time, one time purchase" everything will work fine for <6 months before they release a new version (every six months for the last 5 years now). After the update when you send your customers the older version that is compatible with your version of team viewer, the first thing your customers will see when launching the product is a notification to update. making their version not comparable with yours.

Its not a life time, one time purchase. its a ~$800 every six month purchase per seat. ($8,000 for 5 years)

Beware of their licencing scam

After a recent auto-update, 1000s of people's computers have been remoted into. Losses of $1000s have been recorded.

See the reddit thread and uninstall immediately until fixed.
