A few years ago Teamviewer picked up a lot of users after **Third Party Product** decided to kick out free accounts. As Teamviewer crowed 'free forever for private use' they are now in a bind now so they have invented this nonsense to get rid of use free loaders helping out or families. If they had a legitimate reason they would state what the trigger was, they haven't on here nor to any requests. Filling out and signing a form again and again is just icing for them as they get to associate actual ID AND activity with 'real' people the moment that have an address, phone number and a signature.(remember paid accounts do that via the payment method) If they are not harvesting data from their free users (remember if it's free on the internet then YOU are the product) then they are gathering data for some 'other' entity who wants it. 1 hour a week to help my 80 year old mother deal with the interweb is ALL I ask, but that's not possible with Teamviewer. The ONLY thing I can think of in their defence (which they could say if it was true) is that using a VPN looks suspicious to them as the true location of the user is either variable or not as stated on the form. If that's the case then I still won't use them as a VPN is a neccessary part of trying to stay safe online.
