    Free Personal Mac Windows Linux BSD

    • 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 • 4 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Stable, and the portable version does not start a bunch of services every time the computer starts like team viewer. barrenowlOct 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 • 4 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Because it is the most similar to teamviewer and generally technically superior ryangreenApr 2017 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees 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 • 1 agrees and 2 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 • 1 agrees and 3 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • TeamViewer is much more than just a remote desktop connection, unattended access for example. Guest • Nov 2015 • 20 agrees and 15 disagrees 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 • 6 agrees and 6 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    Free 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 • 4 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • fastest and best native tool, except of NAT. TristisOrisAug 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Doesn't allow remote access across the WAN without a lot of work. davidshqOct 2017 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 2 disagrees 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 • 2 agrees and 7 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    Free 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 • 8 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • For users who know what they are doing TightVNC is a great way to control systems remotely. ChaosDropApr 2017 • 4 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Does not offer easy to use access. Need to run server.. open ports, know IP addresses. Guest • Sep 2016 • 6 agrees and 3 disagrees 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 • 3 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's not only alternative, it is the best, fastest, and most lightweight among all terminal configurable servers. Also can be used on arm processors where Team Viewer supports only host machine installation. makkasiAug 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • For average users, it's the best VNC server Guest • Sep 2017 Disagree   Agree

    Free 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 • 4 agrees and 8 disagrees Disagree   Agree

i think they are taking advantage of the users

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.

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).
