TeamViewer Alternatives

    The most popular alternative is AnyDesk. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try Chrome Remote Desktop or UltraVNC. If that doesn't suit you, our users have ranked more than 100 alternatives to TeamViewer so hopefully you can find a suitable replacement. Other interesting TeamViewer alternatives are DWService (Free, Open Source), Remote Desktop Connection (Free), TightVNC (Free, Open Source) and LogMeIn (Paid).

      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.

      AnyDesk is a great alternative to Team Viewer. It works better and costs less (I'm a paying AnyDesk user). I use it extensively to help friends and family.

      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!

      It has too much options for an incompetent user to setup. Also, it does not tell the external IP address of the user, so I cannot connect.

      TightVNC requires server configuration and port forwarding. Too complicated for the average remote client who uses Team Viewer for remote support.

      Remmina is a great RDP or VNC client. These are already listed as remote desktop technologies. Let's be clear the main advantage of TeamViewer (and LogMeIn) is that the remote computer only needs an Internet connection. No port forwarding required.

      Easy to use, install NoMachine on both computers. Connect to another computer via internet with external IP or services like dyndns, just need port forwarding. Very stable and many features.

      It works just the same as TeamViewer, but the download is only 1.5 megs - and it's not $800 - it's totally free.

      Like TeamViewer but no features except for chat and file transfer via chat window. If only remote control needed then this will be just fine. Does the basic job very well.
