It started doing that last night. Why does it think I'm using it for work? My personal computer has Win10 Pro installed -- is that it? I have Citrix Receiver installed on my personal computer because I use it to connect to my job, but I never use TeamViewer at work (they have their own solution for connecting to PCs). The only time I use TeamViewer is to connect to my son's computer at home to help get him set up for virtual school, but I can't do that in 2 minutes. :(
Follow up post...
For those having troubles with session timeout (connection shorter than 1 minute) and false promise of re-enabling connection after 1-2 minutes...
Give a try to the request of an account reset (sorry, as a newbie I am not allowed to post here a link - search TV site).
Although I did not received "Commercial use suspected/detected" message, three days ago I've encountered same issues as many users are having now.
I filled in the form mentioned above, and on the other day I received mail from TV support that my account was reset. And TV is fully functional again. Hurray!
It proves the problem is bound to user ID (on each operating system, you are assigned unique ID), not the connection infrastructure. For me, request for account reset (reactivation) did help.
Same here, I keep being logged out after 1-2 minutes and can't reconnect. Not sure why.
I think, that TW became commercial only and free version is just a miracle.
Same for me. Any suggestions? I uninstalled and reinstalled
free version 15.15.5
have encountered connect timeout after 4-5 minutes
message reads ;
connection blocked after timeout
you license limits the maximum session duration to a partner, immediate reconnects are blocked.
please try again later or upgrade your license.
non commercial use only, helping setup a new laptop
Same with me.
I am having a basic personal account with Team Viewer and when I try to connect between my iMac and my Macbook for personal use, I keep getting an error message saying that the connection is timed out and I cannot reconnect as the maximum session duration is timed out.
And I get this message about a minute after connecting, and thus, I am unable to use teamviewer anymore.
Can you please check why this is the case and rectify the same so that I can keep using it. Or let me know what I need to do as I uninstalled and reinstalled the software in both my computers and still it is unresolved.
Here is an image of the message I get.

Ester - the link in your blog seems to be incorrect. It produces the 404 message. PLease update and post the correct link to the referenced reset function.
Same here..... I hope a resolution can come soon to this problem. Its annoying
After one or two minutes from the opening of the session I receive two messages:
The first one: Session expired and
The second one: look at the image:

I already send a message to TeamViewer assessing that my use is NOT commercial and received an email that told me that it was OK and the problem was solved.
It is not so.
This problem arose after my Installation of the last MAC O.S. BIG SUR.
Have you an idea of what should I do?
Me too!!!! And when I get back in I can only stay for a min or 2 and it says the same thing!!!
Hi, it turns out the problem I was having was simpler than I thought.
The reset upload webpage requires that the postal code NOT have a space in it. My autofill put it in with my regularly formatted postal code WITH a space.
The form validator provides a note that the field is incorrect, but it does not stand out as well as it could, and so the user just clicks the submit button over and over not realizing their (small) error.
A big red border around the error message (and the erroneous field) would be a super affordance. A note close to the the user's focus of view on the submit button would also be a big help.
Same problem. Non commercial use, but disconnect after less than two minutes.
It looks that TeamViewer don't care of us (non commercial user).
If there will be a solution I'll pass to **Information removed as per Community Guidelines** that looks to be very good, ... but it's a pity. I use TeamViewer since a lot of years ago and I recommended this SW to many people ... who bought a licence for their business.
I guess marketing wanted to configure session timeout to 30 minutes, but someone set it to 30 seconds accidentally. Otherwise I can't understand why they limits free session to 30 seconds. 🤔
I have a personal use account and i am connecting from my Job computer to my house to work with my child during her remote learning sessions for school, every time i log in i get a message saying "your license limits the maximum session duration to a partner, immediate reconnections are blocked.
Please advise why this is happening, as I need to connect with my daughter during her classes
I have the same problem!
Many years i had helped to my friend with programs. Now teamweaver rights me that commercial using... NONSENS !!!! NEVER!! How fix that *bleep** **bleep**????!!!
I just received the exact same issue connecting to ONE specific computer. I can connect to any other computer with no issue, but when I try to connect to my tablet PC, I either get your exact same message or I get a timeout error after a few minutes. And it only started today.
I have the same problem. The contact support doesnt work anyway. There is a free user like personal use account and it doesnt work. may be the answer is to chenge the software?? please TEAMVIEWER tell something about. Thanks
I always used TeamViewer with familiars and friends only. But the TV started to block saying I was having a commercial use. BUT... I stopped used for months and it STILL DONT LET ME USE IT.
Please, reset my free account. Thanks.
I have the same issue. My laptop at works connects to my child's computer at home during Distance Learning but today I keep getting "your license limits the maximum session duration to a partner, immediate reconnections are blocked". I can't see the "Submit Ticket" either. Please help!
Well thank you for warning me =. The link you sent doesn't work, yes I get to the team viewer reauthorise your access page but can't get any further. Just nothing happens. But looking at the forum it seems that many people can't get access. Try another system. Incidentally ... what was I "warned" for and highlighted in red?? .. Are you going to send the Cyber Police to my home? For agreeing with many others that teamviewer has made a retrograde step. I understand you want to make money, but it won't be from me with your attitude!!

I started to send an e-mail to frontline-service, but will wait to see if TV reply.
