Commercial use - Connection time out

  • I had this same issue and support told me that when a computer is used for personal/commercial (as you explained) it's solely considered a commercial license endpoint... I was extremely dissapointed to find I accidentally forced a few of my clients from their personal use since I pushed my access to their home systems trying to help them.  Seems everyone has a catch to nail people for money these days.

    I have a few home PC, and i using login from the work place using my own laptop. than this few days i keep get the message we've detected you're using Teamviewer on a business network, what i can do now? Do i have to contact you? Please help.

  • I'm having the same issue but now it doens;t appear that you can sedn emails to the support email to fix the issue.  I never use TV for commercial use but I now have this message.

    I am having the same issue as well. I also access my home network from work, but it is all for personal use. For me it started when I would remote to one of my devices from my phone; however, now I get it when I remote into most of my computers.

    I do have ~4 computers that are always on and logged into TeamViewer: my wife's desktop, my PC in the living room, my networking pc (the one I use to manage the home network), and another personal desktop. I do have ~15 offline devices; however, these are either old computers or family devices like my sisters or mom

    Edit

    I went through all the offline devices and removed all old devices and family computers I have not touched in over a year.

    I get the same message, but it is only when I connect my home laptop to my home desktop. They are both on the same home network too.

    If I connect to my mom's desktop or any other PC from my laptop, I don't get the message.

    Also, if I connect from my home desktop back to my home laptop, I don't get the message either.

    For some bizarre reason TV thinks connecting to my home desktop from my home laptop is somehow for business use. Obviously, there's some bugs in their latest versions of TV.

     

  • Yes, this started happening to me as of recently. I'm using the PC, and I get timed out. Which result is a block of another connection due to my "limitations". Limitations I never had before, by the way! I was able to reconnect when this happened on a bad connection before. But now I'm on a stellar connection on both ends, stop timing out! And stop limiting my connection needs. I'm using this personally not commercially, no reason for having these limits. So I get to use it for 4-5 minutes every 3 minutes(it gets blocked for 3 minutes)

    Thanks to whoever trying to resolve this with me, or for me.

    I have to say Teamviewer used to be a lot better, but had been worse and worse for me. Both on Linux and on Windows. Is it possible to obtain an old version, maybe that will be better for me, as I don't like the progression Teamviewer has taken for the past year or two..

    Hi, I'm using the versione 13.0.6447 with free license. I have an active account for manu years. I use the product to provide assistance to family and friends.

    It is about two weeks that when I make a connection, I am told thath a commercial/businnes use ha been detected and that the session will be terminated in 5 minutes.

    In addition to buying the license (which I can not, even for the use that I do) is there any way to solve this inconvenience?

    Best regards

    I made a support ticket and there working on it now!

  • I submitted a ticket regarding commercial use 10 days ago and i was wondering how long does it take to respond?

  • Hi,

    I use Teamviewer for a very long time. Always installed it on every computers I had, and same for all my family and friends, so I can help them whenever they need a hand with their computer or whenever I need to access one of my computer from any PC or phones I have.

    I don't recall last time I used my Teamviewer but today, I tried to use it from my phones to access one of my computer and this evening at home, from one computer to another (they are on the same network at home). And each time I got a pop up saying that there is a commercial use suspicion. This is annoying. I do not want to be banned from using Teamviewer or have limitations while I have never used it for directly or indirectly paid purposes...

    I hope it is a known bug in the detection algorythm and that it will be sorted out soon.

    I do not want to come back to a **Third Party Product** like system. But if I have to, I will... My girlfriend is 300km away from me and she is often in dire need of help with the computer...

    I have created a ticket n°3904424 and hope I will soon have a reply.

    Kind regards,

  • I started having the same issue last week as this is the only PC i log into on a regular basis.  I unfortunately was unable to  open a ticket because Teamviewer is tellig me I don't have a license as I am using a free version.  Looking for some help.

  • Go to : https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/Why-do-I-see-Commercial-use-suspected-Commercial-use-detected/ta-p/5265

    at the end of the page there is a link to a form and it will create a ticket.

    it seems we have to wait as I saw messages telling it is up to 30 days before we can have a reply...

  • Hi,

    This is a copy / paste of one of my messages I posted in a resolved post. As for me, it is not a solved issue I decided to open a new post. Sorry for any inconvenience.

    I use Teamviewer for a very long time. Always installed it on every computers I had, and same for all my family and friends, so I can help them whenever they need a hand with their computer or whenever I need to access one of my computer from any PC or phones I have.

    What did you do to fix it?

  • I just started getting "we've detected you're using teamviewer on a business network" (I am accessing my home computer from work to check email, etc. as I can't easily do that on my work computer)

    is that commercial use? (I'd tend to not think so)

    if so, will that error message eventually disable me from using teamviewer? (if yes, then I'd tell everyone to avoid it any context...)

  • What tricks?  Please share so we can all fix it ourselves.

    Contact support sooner than later.   Non paid issues are very low priority and it takes time for them to correct the issue. 

     

  • I suppose

    I'm just affraid if I contact support they might fully cut me off as they might interpret my usage as being commercial in nature (even though I don't get paid to read my personal email (!))

    i figure if it starts limiting me to 5 minutes, i've got nothing to lose than to ask (and if that happens, I'll just start using some other tool

    I am using Team Viewer for personal use.  The website says this is free.  However, no matter how many times I uninstall and reinstall Team Viewer, I keep getting a popup that tells me that my trial period is over and that I have to buy a license.  And, Team Viewer will not work anymore.  Team Viewer requires licenses for personal use?  When did that start?

    I quit using them a while ago over this, because I felt a sense of guilt. I eventually found my way back.. I use it heavily on maybe 5-6 computers all of which are non-commercial and hobby-class if you will.

    That said, I'm not sure if the heavy use on multiple computers is the issue here or if it's that I have several VLANs setup in my home because I'm a geek.. either way, I also do not appreciate being falsely accused of violating their license agreement.

    I would be very happy to pay a person user subscription because I like the product so much.  Something that is fair, similarly to what **Third Party Product** charges. However for my purposes, I could just as easily cut over to RDP or some other free alternative I just love the power of TV, and I regularly advocate to get it used in-house commercially so I could offset my guilt for using it freely for my personal use by gaining them a paying client.

  • Hallo, ich erhalte trotz Verwendung der Free-Verison (privater, nicht kommerzieller gebrauch) auf meinem PC die Meldung "...Ihre Lizenz ist jedoch leider für diese version nicht gültig..." usw.

    Habe bereits einen Neuinstallation durchgeführt, hilft allerdings nicht. die meldung nervt :(

    MfG

  • i have same problem, i have no idea how to fix this
