Alternatives to TeamViewer for all platforms with Free License

  • AnyDesk

    Remote desktop app for sharing screens and files sharing across most devices focusing on speed and security.

    • - available worldwide - quick and light app - file transfer is faster than team viewer - free version available uramium2May 2020 Disagree   Agree
    • It's completely free for personal use and cheaper than TeamViewer for professional use Guest • Sep 2018 • 2 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Very stable and reliable, less complicated than teamviewer. Guest • Jul 2019 • 13 agrees and 4 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 • 33 agrees and 7 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 • 8 agrees and 8 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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. hansencomputersDec 2019 • 3 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • AnyDesk is TeamViewer but more privacy-friendly. Compared to Teamviewer, their privacy policy is less invasive, their Linux application doesn't require a service and their Android application doesn't contain any tracker (see the exodus privacy report). It's just better. Guest • Nov 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • AnyDesk does NOT offer an account, so there's no way to sync your PC list. Guest • Aug 2019 • 5 agrees and 5 disagrees 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 • 21 agrees and 8 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It's too lightweight, easy to use and have a better User Interface to transfer files between remote computers than the other tools. JuanDP728 days ago Disagree   Agree
    • it has intuitive interface and no delay while processing. assistantphilrichards13 days ago Disagree   Agree

  • Chrome Remote Desktop

    Chrome Remote Desktop allows users to remotely access another computer through Chrome browser or a Chromebook. Computers can be made available on an short-term basis...

    • it is not bad. but start menu didn't refresh like teamviewer. Unlike what others said, I can set unattended access. Guest • Jul 2019 • 1 agrees and 1 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 • 17 agrees and 10 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • It uses VP8 to stream your desktop which makes it more responsive and improves quality. 914ian914Feb 2018 • 2 agrees and 1 disagrees 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 • 8 agrees and 12 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • UltraVNC

    Free remote PC access software that can display the screen of another PC via LAN or the Internet.

    • Have to manually open ports/redirect firewall. Extra alternate software/hardware modification required. Guest • Jul 2019 • 12 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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. Guest • Apr 2020 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 • 20 agrees and 20 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • fastest and best native tool, except of NAT. TristisOrisAug 2017 • 17 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Simple and comes with the OS. No need to maintain. wiredbladeJul 2018 • 8 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • fastest, best picture, its like Virtual dekstop Guest • 6 days ago Disagree   Agree
    • It is very easy to use and doesn't require much hassle tobisawickiApr 2020 Disagree   Agree
    • Only windows support. Only a single user can use it once a time and it is slow Guest • May 2017 • 4 agrees and 9 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 • 3 agrees and 9 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Remmina

    Open source and copyleft remote desktop client for Linux and BSD that supports plugins.

    • It is FREE, but only suitable for real OS's such as Linux or BSD ;) Guest • Aug 2019 • 2 agrees and 8 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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. Guest • Jun 2018 • 16 agrees and 4 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Full version with full source code and no spying for everyone. comradekinguMar 2020 Disagree   Agree
    • it is easy to connect to virtual computers very nice Guest • Dec 2017 • 8 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • UltraViewer

    Computer Remote Control/Access Support software. UltraViewer help you remote control your partner's computer to support them like you're next to their screen.

    • It works just the same as TeamViewer, but the download is only 1.5 megs - and it's not $800 - it's totally free. shendisonOct 2016 • 12 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • 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. Guest • Jul 2017 • 6 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • Really awesome for Linux users to remotely connect to their computers through a secure connection. Allows for transmission of audio from the client, and works really well even with slow connections. To summarize: secure by default (because using ssh), good even in low latency, good for presentations, and best alternative to RDP for linux users. elrey741Mar 2020 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

  • Remote Utilities

    Remote PC access program for connecting to a remote PC over LAN or via the Internet.

    • Unattended access, free for up to 10 connections, no time limit, personal or business use. These guys get it! Guest • Oct 2017 • 7 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • There's web account or any way to sync computers which makes it worthless. Guest • Nov 2019 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Supports all features of TeamViewer, but with fair license prices and more technical options. i.e. it allows to run your own relay server ("RU Server") in the public internet to connect your "Viewer" with remote PCs (running unattended "Host" or on-demand "Agent") when they are both behind a firewall. (TV always uses its own cloud infrastructure for that purpose) Guest • Sep 2019 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree
    • Straightforward, effective and lightweight, with less mucking about with usernames and things than Teamviewer. Just what I wanted. If I'm running fullscreen (F12 toggles it) then I feel like I'm just working away on my remote PC. I use it to work from my office laptop using my home desktop setup. justpostedNov 2018 • 0 agrees and 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
