Stay productive everywhere

TeamViewer Remote lets you connect to and control any device without having to leave your desk.

From employee laptops to unattended in-the-field equipment, technicians can control and fix IT issues quicker and more cost-effectively than ever. Employees can access and put key business assets to work, wherever they happen to be. Meanwhile, the ability to view, guide, and troubleshoot from a distance allows you to take super-responsive customer support to a new level.

Delivering rapid, secure, and on-demand connections with cross-platform compatibility, TeamViewer remote control software is the complete solution for all your remote control requirements.

Unattended access

Ideal for system admins and managed service providers, TeamViewer Remote can be used for managing and maintaining unattended devices across an entire IT estate.

Using a single remote control software solution, technicians can connect securely and rapidly with all manner of unsupervised devices such as servers, point-of-sale units, and industrial monitors, regardless of make, model, operating system, or location. Full remote control capabilities are at your fingertips, allowing you to fix glitches, reconfigure, upload data, and roll out changes with ease.

Doing more with less

For technical support staff, TeamViewer’s remote control software means being able to deliver a fix without the need for onsite visits, thereby reducing your operating costs and time-to-resolution significantly. Employees can log onto work machines and use key resources, irrespective of working hours and whether those machines are switched on.

For companies based across scattered locations in different time zones, this means fewer delays in actioning tasks, greater business continuity, and more effective use of business resources.

Training and onboarding

This makes TeamViewer Remote an ideal resource for education, online training, and workplace onboarding.

What sets TeamViewer remote control software apart?



  • Industry-leading encryption. 4096-bit RSA key encryption and 256-bit AES session encryption keeps your data safe from interception during remote control sessions. Protecting your data and privacy is our top priority.
  • Supporting your wider security practices. Through TeamViewer Tensor, enterprises can deploy conditional access policies to enforce company-specific security protocols, giving you granular control over who can access what.
  • Two-factor authentication. TeamViewer’s remote control software offers two-factor authentication for connections to secure devices. Alternatively, devices can be configured to be accessible via a 2FA-protected account only. 2FA can also be used to secure user accounts, preventing unverified access attempts from unknown devices.



  • Effective remote control for unattended devices. Wake-on-LAN enables the temporary waking/rebooting of unsupervised end devices for ease of maintenance.
  • Cross-compatibility. Access and remotely control all manner of niche devices, e.g. Android-based information displays, from a single remote control software solution.
  • Integrations. Integrate TeamViewer Remote with your key business software to embed TeamViewer remote control functionality into your critical business systems.
