Re: You can't open a ticket, instead look at the first post i...

I filled the form for Team Viewer Non Commercial Use because i am an IT geek and I would like Teamviewer People to get a professoinal user more with many technologies for testing.

 

I am waiting since 1 month for an answer to the filled form, no reaction, no scheduled timeline for a process, I say this form and the info provided by me just goes to /dev/null (Trash/Bin) name it anyhow...

Teamviewer Support Team

 

you have 1 day (24 hours) to fix my accounts status to Non Commercial, before I will show how you hurt my feelings with your policy

Just because I use a Domain Authentication on a FreeNAS Storage, that runs on a 12 year old server you suspect Commercial Usage, very unprofessional decision about who is professional and who is not. So I suspect Teamviewer Support ignores user requests of technically interested people and wants to claim money from people who just do this for their own hobby.

If you would offer a valid HOBBY style license for 20 EUR / year I would support your product, otherwise I will wait 24 hours from now until someone changes my accounts status to NON Commercial and if this does not happen

 

Teamviewer will be uninstalled on my MacOS Server, WIN10 Server, Laptop1, Laptop 2., Android Phone 1, Android Phone 2, Android Phone 3, Android TV

and all the tests and results according teamviewer I offered in the past to this support community will be deleted

 

And all this because Teamviewer Suspects Commercial Usage because I am authenticatingon a 12 year old Active Directory Server for Fun and my only Entertainment

TV Support is not even reading these community threads on their own platform, they just sit with their goldchains in their big cars running Android TV cruising in the world and they run a teamviewer session to home because they dont need to pay for private license and they are not suspected of commercial use. TV could you not share us a Hobby License Key?

Still have problems with comercial use message

I receive this answer from your support team in 12 June to my problem with comercial use message that I see when use Team Viewer in one of my home computers.

At the same day I fill form for declaration of private use and send back email to mentioned mail in point 2 (form-service@teamviewer.com) but month and a half till now I haven`t received confirmation from your team and the commercial use message is still popping up.

Can you help me to resolve my problem with "commercial use message" because I have need more time for my sessions (not only 5 minutes) till message appears?

Free license

TeamViewer greetings.

I am a user of the free version, exclusively for private use, but lately the software is blocked because it identifies me as "Professional Use".

But I use TeamViewer only to help inexperienced internet browsing friends, or to clean their PC from residual files and uninstall programs, because they are old or very inexperienced people, they are my direct acquaintances and not strangers.

I don't have a support site and I'm not a computer scientist and I don't ask for anything for the time spent helping my friends and relatives when it happens.

So paying a license like that of TeamViewer and not even being able to recover its cost you understand that it wouldn't be right, I don't ask anyone for even 1 cent.

But it is the second time that connecting with a friend after a few seconds TeamViewer closes with the writing that I am making a professional use and it is not true.

Last time I uninstalled your beautiful program and you told me that you had checked and fixed it giving me private and non-corporate use and it seemed to have gone well.

But this problem has probably occurred again.

I repeat, I don't make professional use of it and if I can't use TeamViewer I will use Zoom which allows remote sharing or I will use Skype with the mouse using the interlocutor, or some other remote sharing program, but always free.

I can't pay a business license because I don't take any compensation for this use, I don't have a company, I am a private individual and I only do it for friendship.

Can you help me?

Thank you very much and best regards

**bleep**? commercial use???????

I recently got a popup saying that teamviewer thinks I am using the software commercially, is this a joke? I am unemployed and I help my friends out on their PERSONAL COMPUTERS when they are stuck on things, I was about to reccomend teamviewer to my sister who IS in business but not very computer literate as its a good solution with all the extra functions like remote training and so on which I have used ONCE to show her, I don't know what triggered your system but I wont be reccomending teamviewer any further as there's obviously something wrong there and I'm curious what makes you think I'm using it commercially ffs, just for clarification, I don't work, I'm mega geeky, nobody will give me a job because I am autistic however all my friends ask me to help with their PERSONAL!!! PC's when they are stuck and I make NOTHING!! other than the satisfaction of being some use at least to someone, thanks for shafting that for me, really appreciate it >:(

"commercial use detected" keeps locking me out repeatedly despite having been approved for free use

Dear Teamviewer, 

your commercial use protection system must be a complete **bleep** up. Despite having been approved for free use twice, the second time just fricken last week I just again had the popup window regarding commercial use detected pop up again stating I have 5 minutes of connection time left and then disconnects me after 1 minute, locking me out for 10 minutes. 

I understand you wanna make sure the terms and conditions are respected. But please then respect them yourself. It takes you weeks to do the approval. You lock out people earlier than you say. What do you expect your users to think about your company? 

Please help me to be able to manage my private-use servers in a reasonable timeframe and stop locking me out of my system. Stick to what you say and don't have the system change it's mind all the time. PLEASE! 

this is really not funny in any way :(

Same here, im getting commercial use suspected, and it keeps dropping connection opening there website for me to pay.  i have a few machines in the house, Probably use like a couple times in the month. but this is getting annoying. i have been in touch with teamviewer over the last few months, but no help, just keep putting me through to the business side. 

Is there any free software similiar to this, that dont try to force you to stupid business rates for software that is being used for personel home use.

Re: TeamViewer showed me a message "Connection blocked after timeout. Your license limits the maximum session durat

Let us get it right. TeemViers leadership with the filthy rich individuals CEO Andreas König and our CMO Stefan Prestele never get enoiugh. They have seen too many Wallstreet movies and think "Greed is good". Not only that, they think "Greed is God". They completely ruined a good product, by trying to **bleep** the 2 bill. customer base to the max.

I have uninstalled all Temaviewer products from all my computers. I tried **Third Party Product**, but it didn't work properly so I used **Third Party Product**, free, fast and easy to install use. You do it too.

Anyone believs this **bleep**?

Re: TeamViewer showed me a message "Connection blocked after timeout. Your license limits the maximum session durat

I just did a google search for two of the alternatives mentionedin @toremf 's post that didn't get censored yet. In both cases, Teamviewer came up as the #1 result because they paid for an advertisement. The alternatives that I was actually searching for came up as the second result because they didn't pay for an ad. I guess this helps to explain why Teamviewer is trying squeeze professional license fees from personal users, to pay for the ads.

Re: TeamViewer showed me a message "Connection blocked after timeout. Your license limits the maximum session durat

Here's an interesting twist. I had been getting a gentle warning every time i connected to my downstairs TV (television) PC. They suspected commercial use. I did a number of tests to determine that it was that PC that was flagged and not any other of my other PCs.

Today, the gentle warning was upgraded to a full threat. See the attached two screenshots from two separate connection sessions below. Both informed me that my session would time out in five or an unspecified number of minutes. Yet the sessions were not terminated. And I waited at least fifteen minutes. Two years ago when I was hit by this problem, they told me five minutes but actually only gave me thirty seconds. Notice too the second image now says they know I'm using TV commercially instead of it just seeming so (but still threatening to cut off the session).

I also had been getting requests to upgrade the TV PC TV to the latest version. So I decided to do so now and after I did, I stopped getting messages about commercial use whenever I connected. I tested thta three or four times and no message.

Interesting. So does the commercial use detection algorithm include a check for old versions? How does that make it commercial?

Session timeout after few seconds (no "commercial use" issue)

Hi,

I have read all threads about session timeout so here is to clarify:

- the timeout doesn't happen after 5mins, but much, much less. More like 30 seconds
- I need to wait 10 minutes before I can log in again
- I do NOT get a message about commercial use! It says (translated from German): "Connection is locked after timeout. Your license limits the maximum session duration. New connections will be blocked. Please try again later or upgrade your license. Connections to this partner are blocked until [t+10min]"
- I get this on any of my PCs. All PCs are Win10 latest update and latest Teamviewer version (14.xyz)
- I do use TV on different platforms, but I haven't tried if the Linux version behaves the same or not, hence I've only added the Windows label to this.

This makes the free Teamviewer version totally useless. They could as well abandon the free version (30 seconds!! Come on!) Please let me know if this is a temporary glitch, or if I have to move on to a different software. Thanks.

I'm tired to be suspected. I'm a musician. I don't do anything commercially with TV

I'm an old user of TV. I'm helping my parents and couple friends remotely from time to time. I'm really sad to see TV management don't care about free users anymore. It is so sad to see this happening. Suspecting me in commercial usage.

I mean yes I have multiple devices Desktop, laptop, iPhone, iPad and yes, ocasionaly traveling, who doesn't?

It is not fair to put a sign it is FREE for personal use. Cause it eminds me a jail or concentration camp - step right, step left - shoot! Scary!

I'm finally arrived to my parents house which was like 6000 miles away. Updated OS, updated TV to TV14. And?

I'm probably done here. Will look for External IP option for my parents probably and will use built-in options of Remote acess. And also will not recommend this product anymore to anyone. Really dissapointed. "Thank you" new Teamviewer team!

1) We encourage you to purchase a license that fits your needs: https://www.teamviewer.com/pricing

When you return this to us, we will review your response confirming your declaration of private use and use this to determine whether we can re-enable your use of TeamViewer.

Re: Dear TeamViewer User,

Wow $50/mnth for one connection what a rip off! I used to use it a lot up till today, 5 family members requiring assistance occasinally plus I use it to control my other home computers instead of flipping the monitor and keyboard back and forth. Good program but not interested in filling out forms or paying **Please do not discuss price**. I would've sprung for **Please do not discuss price** just to get rid of the nag and not have to reinstall another remote control everywhere. **Third Party Product** will be fine thanks though for forcing me to waste a bunch of time. Sorry I ever switched to TV and told people how good it is.

...Not to mention how concerning it is, from a privacy point of view, to know TV is collecting and processing data to make such a judgement.

Team Viewer Commercial Use

I have been using TeamViewer for a year or so now. I had an issue about 6-12 months back complaining that I was using TeamViewer for commercial use... After looking at my connection history, the support team made me sign and send a form saying something along the lines that I assure I am not using TeamViewer commercially. I filled out the form, and after a week I was good to go to connect to my other PC again. The time has come yet again where I am getting the We Believe Team Viewer Is Being User Commercially prompt, and closes my connection after about 2 minutes. 

How do I use TeamViewer:

I use it to connect to 1 PC on that's on my home network when I am at home, or sometimes I will connect to the PC remotly using the TeamViewer app. 

What I don't use TeamViewer for:

I don't have an association with TeamViewer connecting to any buisness, or doing an I.T. related issue for other people.

I don't use TeamViewer to earn a profit.

I don't use TeamViewer as an addon to anything I sell... nor do I sell anything.

If a moderator wants to contact me, I will be more than happy to send all the needed files and discuss further how I use TeamViewer. I will also sign another one of those Personal Usage Forms if needed. These 2 minute connections, then 15 minutes in between is killing me.

Re: Team Viewer Commercial Use

I am getting the false commerical use message again. I had the same problem in 2016. The ticket number at that time was #2765304 and this got fixed quickly.

I am retired and have been unable to walk unaided since 2006. I have used TeamViewer for several years to access the computers in my home. I also use TeamViewer to access my families’ computers. I have NEVER used it commercially and have NEVER earned any money using TeamViewer. I have reread your non‑commercial requirements and I clearly meet these requirements.

Let me be very clear. I have NEVER used TeamViewer commercially and have NEVER earned any money using TeamViewer.

I hope we can fix this situation quickly.

Thank you for your help.

Re: Team Viewer Commercial Use

The "commerical use" bug bit me today. I found the two similar but different forms below. I was finally able to submit the second one using the numeric TeamViewer id (### ### ###) in the device ID field. The first one asked for "TeamViewer ID", but didn't like the TeamViewer user ID I submitted. The second also asked for a log file, so I sent the latest one along. I'm not going to hold my breath, since the form says "answering your request may take up to 30 days".

Re: Long term user today got teamviewer "suspected commercial use"

Yes, I'm going to look around for a new product.I really can't justify spending [the price has been removed as per the community guidelines.] when for the most part I could just get up, go upstairs, and sit down at the other computer.

I found there are actually two similar pages for arguing your case, links are below. I got the second one to work by including the numeric device id (### ### ###) in the device ID field. This form also requires submitting a TeamViewer log file, which I did.

The "commercial use suspected" form asked for a  "TeamViewer ID",  and wanted the numbers as well. This doesn't make much sense, since the numbers identify a particular computer. I now have two blocked computers, I'd like to get them unblocked at the same time.

The two forms actually have different purposes, The first one talks about the commerical use messages we've been seeing, and promises a response in 7 days. The second one talks about an expired trial period, something to do with the options selected when installing TeamViewer, and says a response may take up to 30 days.

I've now submitted both forms, so we'll see what happens.I really thought the second form was just a different version of the first, but failed to read carefully, due to frustration over trying to figure out what the first form wanted.
