How to enable remote control over supported device without having a physical access to it?

Cheburecus Posts: 1 Newbie

TeamViewer says: After the connection was accepted on the supported device, you are connected to the mobile device and can remotely control the entire device.

Is it possible to set the supported device to be fully available for remote access.?

I want to keep one of my phones at my office and be able to access it from home.

    Hi @Cheburecus,

    Welcome to TeamViewer Community and I believe my real life example would be helpful in answering your question.

    ⏲Time returns to a couple years ago when I was using an Android device📱. I remembered that morning I was so rushed to leave home then my mobile device got left behind at home. My phone was as important like my wallet, my keys, leaving it unattended made me really frustrated and worried. Then I realised that TeamViewer Host was installed and configured. What about a remote connection to my mobile devices? At lease I could ensure who ever had tried to contact me through out the day.

    The connection was simple, find my mobile device ID from my Computers & Contacts list on the local TeamViewer, connect and the authentication bypass as the presetting was completed. Yes! I could remote access to my unattended mobile device 📲! The phone was safe and sound. What a relief for me. I could even check the missing calls, unread messages and even reply the messages too. That was really a handy tool to have TeamViewer installed on mobile!

    How do you feel about my experience with remote accessing the device? ❓

    TL; DR

    Technically, TeamViewer works smoothly on the supported devices. However, please also allow me to expand this talk a bit more for the exceptions when remoting to an unattended mobile device.

    Factors to consider📝:

    1. Battery level, Internet settings and the safety condition of the unattended device
    2. The device manufacturer, operating system, TeamViewer application module, TeamViewer version and setting configuration
    3. Currently TeamViewer only offer screen-sharing feature on iOS and iPadOS devices and TeamViewer Host is not available.

    To sum up, TeamViewer would work fine if all the prerequisites are working or matching. You may also find the additional information about connection to mobile devices here 👉

    I really hope my long story would inspire you and help you understand the remote connection better.
