Check and Track Incoming Log and IP Details

Just few days ago some one enterted my computer through teamviewer and stole my important document. I got shocked that some one connected to my computer just 2 days before while i was also using computer same time. Unfurtunately i did not get see the username of incomming user coz he disconnected instantly when he knows im also using computer on that time. 

Mostly my computer is running  20-24hr for internal server usage, So i need kind support to track and check that unknown incomming user details. How to do that. Plz suggest me.

Re: Check and Track Incoming Log and IP Details

Hello. It is very easy to get to know who was connected to your machine at any moment - just open log file localised in C:\Program Files (x86)\TeamViewer\Connections_incoming.txt - there you will see machines' IDs that estabilished an incoming connection to your machine. Finding out exact IPs of machines may be difficult - I think only TeamViewer authors know them.

Re: Check and Track Incoming Log and IP Details

For those who are having this problem make sure you have updated the default 6 character key to something stronger.  Someone entered my computer through teamviewer and I have a theory that scammers are pinging the id until they get a hit.  For those of us who never shutdown our computers the default 6 character password never resets so the scammers can just ping away until one day they get through. 

Teamviewer allows a rotating very secure password of 10 characters, I'd suggest perhaps entering your own very strong 14+ charatcter password.  6 character passwords don't take all that long to break, in my opinion the 6 should not be the default minimum, it should 10 at least. 

I have learned a ton since getting hacked and I think I'm onto something...

I second this. Tonight I noticed that my mouse was moving on my PC. I was in bed when the light came on. I leave my computer on and Teamviewer running too. I changed my settings to the 10 characters. I have 2 factor enabled too so I was surprised anyone can get in. Teamviewer needs to address this.

I have the same query, where can we use the codes in the last column of the incoming logs on our investigation

Re: Check and Track Incoming Log and IP Details

This log stores only the established connections.

Where can I see the trials? Who try to connect to my PC?
