i need to be set back to a free user cant find ticket used it the other day and phone number hangs up when I hit I have free account can I get an message so I can send the right user id
i have used the free version for years helping friends and family. today TV believes im using it for commercial use. any ideas how to resolve this?
I have the same **bleep** problem from my personal mobile phone to my personal desktop. This is Irritating. I spoke with someone from TeamViewer and they wanted me to pay [The price has been removed as per the community guidelines.] a year to allow the connection.**bleep** that and **bleep** TeamViewer. I have been trying to find an alternative without any luck.
As noted, there are several good options for control of a remote computer.The question is, what does Teamviewer have that you need, that these more basic and free applications don't? Teamviewer has a nice file management structure, but that capability can be approximated by simply using Dropbox along with these other free apps.
i like that file transfer between remote/PC is included with free TeamVierwer. The other remote desktop I started using only includes file transfers if you pay a yearly fee.
I have been using teamviewer non commercially to help my kids and some friend for long time .
After updating now I get this message.it Thinks I`m using commercially
How can I change this????
Please read the article here https://www.teamviewer.com/en/support/commercial-use-suspected complete the form if you believe the way you use TeamViewer does not match the definition of commercial usage

Somthing, in fact, has evidently and obviously changed.
do you have multiple computers? Mine did that too but I found out I had to report each PCs ID. The one I reported is fine now. Just waiting on them to free the second PC ID i sent them.
I have two computers that use to contact the other. The only reason is one is windows and the other is a Mac. Sometimes I need to do things on the windows machine I can't do on the Mac.
I have put in the requestion twice and have not received any response as of yet. Hopefully I will hear something soon.
I have been researching other options but it appears that TV will squash any conversation regarding alternatives.

I put in an unblock request to TV about a week ago, protesting the totally fabricated accusation of commercial use, and they say they try to serve those requests in a week. I'll give them a few more days, and then just give TV the heave-ho. Just isn't worth the frustration/exasperation anymore.
took them 10 days to fix my first ID.
Yeah. Still not fixed.
The message when trying to log in says I have 5 minutes but reality is it's less than a minute.
I am hitting the same issue.
I have been using the same account for years to access my own personal use on my own devices and now, I am getting blocked because they are detecting that it's a commercial use.
And there is no one to discuss it with from Teamviewer support.
Any assistance is highly appreciated.Thanks.
TeamViewer is a good product, and I enjoy using it, but the "commercial use detected" police make it unreliable. I need a reliable way to control remote computers for non-comercial applications. As a result, I will look forward to my restriction being removed, but I will not depend on it anymore.
Just FYI, *allegedly* the way to ask TeamViewer to reset your account is here
This has been posted here many times, but is a little hard to find on the TV website.
Thanks Dan, I will process the request
I was in a Viking museum in Iceland last week. One of the computerized displays had crashed, leaving a copy of TeamViewer on the screen. It was the free, non-commercial version!
So much for the commercial use detection algorithm...,
There is a no reall method to the logic to detect commercial use. To me it's a **bleep** shoot just to get you to purchase their product.
I have two computers. One doesn't have a monitor so I use TV to login two or three times a week. This apparently flags as commercial.
Just recently I have been getting kicked off sessions with an alert saying that I am breaking the rules of the free version. Then not ablt to re-connect for about 20 minutes. The session is lasting for about 5 minutes. I have been using this free account to log into my Home PC for many years, this is the first time I am getting this. I am remoting from a Win 10 Laptop (WiFi) to a Win 7 Desktop (ETH)
Any thoughts wuld be greatly appreciated...
Done this many times now and still not blocked or any communication from TV.
Monst sensible users (like me) that were legally compliant but still mistreated by the company are finding their way to other solutions by using search engines like duck duck go go or google to find alternatives to TeamViewer.
TV's c-suite has made their priorities clear. Their actions to hamper freemium usage was ham-**bleep** and wrong. TeamViewer lost a lot of brand capital. The Internet hates TeamViewer, now.
Team Viewer is denying me access to 1 of my pc stating it is used for Biz/Commercial use.
That is not accurate. I have logged into my work VPN before bc my work PC was down, but this is my personal PC and that is not something that will happen again anytime soon.
C'mon folks. TeamViewer is generous in letting us use its services, but the commercial use police are out of control, and it is time to say goodbye.
I wonder what they screwed up/changed that so many free users are having this issue.
That should be somewhat obvious. They do provide a great and realiable service, that costs money.
But, this is a money grab on their part. I believe the purposing obviscate how the process works and don't really do a whole lot to fix the ones the flagged as commercial by mistake.
They have no loss in the game by initiating this process. You either pay or not use there service. You weren't paying in the first place so you aren't generating and revenue. You are just costing the money for the infrastructure they provide. This is why their response is what it is.....
Again, I will probably never recommend this product to anybody ever.
There was a time when Teamviewer was pretty unique in functionality. That was the time when we adored them, and worried over unfounded accusations of commercial use. Those days are long gone.
