How to wake up remote phones

martinzima Posts: 2 ✭✭

I am trying to use TeamViewer to help my mum with her new Android phone. Once the screen is on, I have full access - can unlock the phone, full touch control, etc. However if the phone screen is off I can't do anything.

Is there a way I can turn on the phone screen remotely?

- Thanks in advance

    Hi @martinzima

    Thank you for your message and congrats for your first post.

    If the phone screen is off in your mothers phone , unfortunately it' s not possible to wake it up with TeamViewer.

    With our TeamViewer you can wake up only computers (windows or mac operating systems), for more information click on this link
