Re: Free account computer limit

I would assume it's the same. I answered in that manner because I have not tested it since about 6 months ago.

Hello ken,

Down below is a link where you can see how many devices you can add on a teamviewer license.

https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/How-many-devices-can-I-assign-to-my-TeamViewer-ac...

And as i think it is still the same from what @professor said 50 devices.

I hope this helps,

Thank you for using teamviewer.

With kind regards, Met vriendelijke groet,

Re: Free account computer limit

Hello MasterCATZ,

Teamviewer should just sometimes ask you for buying a commercial license if you use it normally. If you use teamviewer for different reasons (such as connecting with servers and using it for non-commercial use) then it would prompt you to buy a license more often but eventually, if you use it for the wrong purpose to much it would give you only 5 to 10 minutes to connect.

Is this what you are talking about. If not please answer this post and I will be happy to help you.

Thank you for using teamviewer.

Depending on how often and how many people you connect with Teamviewer will flag your PartnerID, not your Account, as Commercial use.  it used to be sending an email resolved that, now it's easier to just scrub the registry and do a clean install to generate a new PartnerID.

My husband has had his desktop Locked that way 3 times in the last 6 years because he helps everyone in his Huge Family (35 people who have moderate to poor computer skills) the current lockout mechanism locks you out after 5 minutes and then adds a 90 minute timer to try to force you to buy a commercial use license.

As I suggested in the Idea's forum, TeamViewer should have a lower cost License that allows small business and home users to pay/contribute to the company but at the same time is not cost prohibitive to people who are not getting paid for remote help.
