Dear Community users,

We would like to announce that TeamViewer will discontinue the service for TeamViewer 3 in March 2019 and TeamViewer 4 in December 2019.

Throughout the TeamViewer history, TeamViewer has brought numerous products and services - like Remote Access, Remote Management and Augmented Reality Support - to the market. 

Since its first launch in 2005 the TeamViewer products and services were enhanced continuously based on user feedback to ensure the best user experience. On top of that we always made sure to support the latest operating systems, implement and deliver the highest security standards as well as best operating performance. This applies of course to all our software products and services. 

We carefully consider the needs and context of our customers. Based on this we improve our solutions with the latest technologies to be future proof as well as support their current work environment. The new Product Lifecycle Policy put this into a transparent framework for our products and services. TeamViewer solutions always consist of the software client and the related infrastructure services. We recommend to always use the latest software client of TeamViewer to ensure compatibility with the latest operating systems, highest security standards and performance.

Our free plan for non-commercial use is offered in the most recent version. If you are a personal user of the free version, please make sure to always use the most recent version. Active customers on a subscription plan can use the service according to our EULA.

If an older version is still in place, please find below a time table displaying the stages End of sales (related to the client software itself) and Service discontinuation (related to the infrastructure provision) representing the availability for each client version and its service.

    We have a TeamViewer 3 Premium license  (3 channels)   there is no way we can continue to utilize this version after the end of life? If we want upgrade to the newer version we have to purchase the license at full price?

    Best Regards

  • I support a small business that this has directly affected. Unfortuately there was no notice other v3 just not connecting at the end of march. The updated pricing model of monthly / annual fees is simply too costly and not a viable option for them.

    If you want to only maintain newer versions for security reasons, that is certainly understandable, but you need to offer those license holders that have perpetual licenses the option to upgrade to a newer perpetual license.

    I have a perpetual license for v9. How long will it be before I have to seek out a different solution?
