    OK, so TV officially ignores the free uses. THis forum is not for getting support (_NO_ tv supporter in the threads, there are a few mods with limited/zero technical knowledge (which is fine as they role only to keep the forum nice and tidy but not to answer the users).

    The questions are still valid and unanswered ones:

    Dear TV "support", as the days goes by and we never ever received any support from your end please take a minute to answer the questions below:
    - what's the official and working support way for free users, if any (this forum is more like user's discussion and not the place where we receive information from the customer support team.)
    - will ever TV send out proofs about the commercial usage for the users _before_ they become banned? if not, why?
    - do you still believe you have right to ban users without prove the violation? it's nothing more than false acquisition. Without proper notification and valid proofs it's a bit unfair. I personally believe that you simply _can't_ prove the violation. Now it's your turn to talk round. [pro tip for free: stop banning the users now -> create a proper algorithm and a proper notification schedule -> distribute it -> start banning users after you can prove something. You're welcome]

    I'm more than happy to get a mail about my previous issue where someone from the technical team point out where and how I violated the free user policy. Even in public.
  • I don't mind  **Third Party Product**. All TV does anymore is come in and remove posts. I wonder how much they have made from legit personal users who gave in and purchased it? 

  • Hello All...

    I've been having the same issue for the last year. The message starts popping up, I submit a request to fix it, several days later I receive confirmation that it's been fixed. That resolves it for several months... then, it starts up again and I go through the same process all over again.

    The reason I'm posting here this time is because, this time, it's been over a week with no response from TV. To make matters worse, even though the message states I'll be cut-off after 5 minutes, I actually get cut-off after about 10 seconds!

    Anybody have any better luck getting this issue permanently resolved?

    I got an error when submitting the Commercial Use Suspected Ticket Form

    Please Help. Thank you!Teamviewer Error.JPG

     

  • I'm getting the same message. Very frustrating. How do they know what we're doing while logged in? Are they viewing our computers? Pretty sure that's a privacy violation . . . .

  • Blocked because commercial use suspected. what does it mean ?. how can i establish connection with my devices ?. help me

  • I am having the same issue as well. Just started with version 13. Teamviewer's algorythem for commercial detection **bleep**. Whoever wrote it should be fired. I have been a free user for persnal user for 5 years, now I can't use anything. Bad move Teamviewer

  • Dear Team Wiever Ladies and Gentlemen, my friend Christian Kühl (claw) has a big problem. You mean that he uses the TeamWeaver commercially, that's not the case, I swear he just helps me and his girlfriend in case of problems. I ask you to unlock the system with him.

  • After several years of great free use, i am now being flagged as commercial.  I am only using it for the computers in my own house and only for my own projects.  I tried to submit a ticket, but I don't have a licence number, is there a way I can have my account reviewed and reset to personal use?

    At this point I have gotten NO **bleep** response from Teamviewer, this coming weekend I WILL set up my own VPN and will tell my IT guys at the company I work for COMCAST/NBC NOT TO USE TEAM VIEWER ANYMORE

     

    Granted I'm using the free one for not work purposes just my home systems and devices, but still this is rediculous behavoir for a company that makes 45 bucks a month a single **bleep** license!

  • Go to this page and fill out form. I was approved for FREE use after a 30 day wait. **bleep**

    After reading through all of the same issues that I am also experiencing and not seeing even 1 reply for a resolution it is apparent that TV does not care. 

    Best responses from TV are post edits by moderators. 

    If your throwing your product out there and advertising FREE personal use then support it or remove it.  The company actions are revealing their true nature and I can only expect no support even if I were to buy commercial use.  TV is living up to the trend of no customer care or support.  I am sure that part of the goal of the free private use is to drive people to a paid use but the total lack of care to even respond to this matter only leads me to believe that I would receive the same lack of care or response to isses as a paying customer.

    Thanks for the "heads up" TV, I now know what NOT to pay for!

    Edit:  I just looked at the page tab of my browser and see "Solved:..."  Really?  Where is the resolution?

    There is no resolution because there is no "glitch". This is all by design. Dumping free users using a passive-aggressive technique.

    Oh I agree! I was trying to be nice as I could. The real resolution is obvious to me; uninstall TV and use my other options. This is obviously not going to even be addressed by TV! Sad!!!
  • They do not respond to the form very quickly.

  • Hi all,

    I know there are some threads regarding this subject but didn't.t see a solution for it.

    Today when trying to use TeamViewer to my homelab I get the warning that I am using the tool in a commercial environment. 

    I am using TeamViewer for many time and only connect to my homelab like 2 or 3 times a year (mostly when I am in vacations), and now I get this warning is connecting is drop?

    I double check the terms and rules, and I don't see where I am breaking the free rules here. So why this?? And how to fix it?

    Thank You

    I have the same trouble with it.
    I'm from Ukraine.
    I use TeamViewer only in home experience.
    TeamViewer - help us please!

    you are breaking the rules.... one computer, ok,..... but more than five? pay for a license already or use something else.... I don't like teamviewer's new subscription theme either but have an older license, version 12 as I connect to family and work. But that doesn't stop them from trying to trick me into updating to version 13 whereas if I did, I'd be locked out of my contract with version 12. I don't blame them for trying but there will be a day when they will f me royally. No worries though, I have alternatives in the works as I'm tired of the games they play. Look on line for alternatives.....

    Responding to the form and "removing" the limitations often changes nothing.

  • I am using Teamviewer strickly for personal use.  I connect to my home computer from the work computer and vice versa.  Things I do is browse the web and listen to music.  Nothing commerical related.  But I do connect multiple times a day.  My work computer is on a domain.

    I hadn't logged in for probably 12 months.

    Try to use it to help my deaf 80yr old mother and blocked by Team Viewer.  

    Overly sensitive to whatever past use it thinks is commercial.  Overpriced anyway - otherwise I'd pay a reasonable amount.

    Very dissapointed - and from the messages here it's probably not worth trying to contact support.

     

  • I'm trying to fill this form out, but it's asking for my "device ID".  Where do I find that?  I'm running TeamViewer on my Mac currently and I don't see a "device ID" in the software interface anywhere.

  • I have a computer that I cloned from a platter hard drive to a solid state.  Now TeamViewer is giving the "commercial purposes" message.  The connection is not being used for commercial purposes.  How can we get around that?

    Thanks,

    Greg

    Same issue. However I have had my account verified and reconfirmed it is not commercial. Email confirmed it. BUT I just went to use it today for the first time and it still says it is commercial. Disappointing.

  • Me and my lover were about to play games, but TV said that usage was commercial for some reason. It was strange, because we just started the translation when it happened.

    Teamviewer wants to earn money, so when you are useing TV regulary you start to get warnings about comercial usage - and later you have a 60seconds usage per session only. I saw a message about writing to support and claiming not to use it comercial - but I never got an answer other than the automatical response mail.

    TV is a great solution (and often the only working one!) but 30 Bucks a month is too high for not earning money with it. Even 30 Bucks a year would be a pain, but this would be affordable.
