      mwildam 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.

      Very stable and reliable, less complicated than teamviewer.

      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.

      yuriykaz I like AnyDesk because it is much faster than TeamViewer, 100% Free for personal use, no installation required, lightweight and has got a VPN and an address book. For professional purposes it has very competitive prices.

      It’s an easy to use program, more easy to use, more private and is lightweight and won’t bog your computer down like other apps featured as alternatives do.

      ken_belanger 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!

      yuriykaz I have been using this app/chrome extension for years now. It just works fine and it's FREE. No fancy tools, just remote single user support, but that's what I need. 100% recommended!

      Not even close to the topic. This is a remote desktop control program, not remote assistant kind of service.

      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.

      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.

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

      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.

      elrey741 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.
