    My account got restricted because i connected to my home pc many times. Because of bad internet on the ferry i got disconnected and reconnected many times now my account is restricted. I can see that you can send a pdf you print sign scan and send to teamviewer, but i don't have access to a printer. Is it possible to sign it using my computer instead of printing and scanning it?

    Since last week i'm getting this message after connecting to some one else:

    Connection blocked after timeout.

    your license limits the maximum duration of the session with a partner and immediate reconnection is blocked.

    Please try again later or upgrade your licence.


    I'm not using teamviewer a lot. Perhaps once of twice a week for a few minutes.


  • Hi Team,

    My user id has been flagged for commercial use. I use Team Viewer to assist my parents use their laptop.

    Please advise on how I can clear the commercial use tag.

    After logging in into my father's computer, the connection is cut within a minute and I get the information:

    The connection has been blocket due to timeout.

    Try later or update your license.

    This connection to your partner will be blocked until (time) .

    I ONLY use Team Viewer to help my father for personal use.

    Why does this show up and what can be done about it?

    Hello, do I have to pay a license to help 3 or 4 friends with the free version of teamviewer?

    Then I suppose that it is not free anymore...

    Please tell me.



    If it's the case, I will find some other free solutions, you will lose a happy customer

    Lately when trying to use teamviewer, whenever I connect with to my laptop with my desktop, it times out very quickly, like after 30-60 seconds. It just says on both ends that "session timed out, and will be closed".. If I try connecting straight away after, it locks me out and tells me to try after another minute, which doesn't work. Even if I wait 5 minutes I can't reconnect, what's happened?

    @markad did you send the reset for stating the 2 TeamViewer IDs (yours and the device you want to connect to)?

    Because I sent the reset for but only stating my TeamViewer ID, and even though they did the reset I still have the same problem. So I thought maybe it was because I didn't also send the other device's TeamViewer ID.

    I just sent it some minutes ago, hope it works this time!

    But I wanted to ask if you also did it like me or not. Thanks!

    same here in Switzerland.

    I use Team viewer to help my 93 years old parents stuck at home due to covid and they need my help. :-s

    I don't use it too often but I have always seen Teamviewer as a good product ?

    The problem sounds to come from there licences system. I did pass to VNC for my sister but my parents are still on Teamviewer as I wanted to introduce it to my boss. Maybe I shouldn't...

    If you used your personal computer for the connection to your commercial customer, then your persomal TeamViewer-ID has been marked as commercial.

    Now you should reset your ID basck to free; how, can you see in the post from Esther


    Se per collegarti con il tuo cliente hai usato il tuo computer personale, anche il tuo TeamViewer-ID è stato marcato come commerciale e quindi bloccato.

    Quello che ti rimane da fare è di resettare il tuo ID secondo le istruzioni di Esther nel link allegato e soprattutto in futuro evitare assolutamente di collegarti con un sito commerciale dal tuo computer privato.

    So, is there anything to do about this? I understand that Teamviewer doesn't want to offer free support to people not paying for using their software, but when they wrongly class your usage as non-personal you should have an option to reply and explain that your usage is indeed personal only.

    Good evening, my name is Pizzuto William and I live in Italy, I'm a 65-year-old computer scientist, I don't work and I'm retired.

    I use your exceptional product to help all the people who ask me for IT help such as seniors, teens and children who cannot attend school, especially in this bad period of lock-down for covid 19. All this I do as a volunteer without requesting absolutely nothing!

    I kindly ask you for help, and reactivate my teamviewer, to be able to continue with my precious support.

    On 23 March 2019 you have already answered me with great kindness as follows:

    Dear TeamViewer User,

    Thank you for getting in touch with us. We are happy to inform you that your TeamViewer ID has been reset to “free”. After reviewing your request, we decided that your use case can be qualified as “personal”.

    I thank you with honor for any of your decisions and I wish you the best of luck!

    Yours sincerely William Pizzuto

    Hello, I am a "newbie" in this forum but has been a "free licence" teamviewer user for a few years now. Since yesterday my remote connection between my computers has been cut of with the same "connections timeout - commercial licence" blockage that all other users in this thread are complaining about. I am a PhD student and need to use TV to connect between computers (desktop/laptop) for field research work, especially now during the pandemic I am not as free to move around as I was before. Living in Brazil it is just getting worse, and if TV does not restore my access it will impact my study.

    Does anyone know what the protocol to submit a ticket is? Or who to talk to? I have no idea what is going on...

    Cheers and best of luck to fellow TVers, Mathias de Carvalho
