TeamViewer Enables Web-Based Remote Access
The TeamViewer web client is available to subscribers via all popular web browsers
TAMPA BAY, Fla., February 25, 2021: TeamViewer, a global leader in secure remote connectivity solutions, today announced the launch of the TeamViewer Web Client for all subscribers of a Remote Access, Premium, Corporate or Tensor license. The HTML 5-based web client allows secure remote access to other devices via Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Edge browsers. The connection can be started from the contact list of the TeamViewer Management Console, which can also be accessed online. The web client allows access to Windows, MacOS and Linux devices that use a full version of TeamViewer, TeamViewer Host or TeamViewer QuickSupport.
TeamViewer subscribers have long had access to the web version of the TeamViewer Management Console, where they can monitor and manage their devices. With web-based remote access, customers can now establish a browser-based TeamViewer remote control connection from the Management Console without having to install a TeamViewer client – quickly and easily. Like all TeamViewer connections, this is end-to-end encrypted and includes proven functionalities such as controlling the input devices, updating, locking or restarting the computer as well as activating the security screen, which blackens the screen of the accessed computer. Support via web client is particularly relevant if the usual device with the existing TeamViewer installation is not available, but there is a need for quick access. Likewise, support is available from devices on which software installations are blocked by default.
“With the web client, we are implementing another building block for unlimited connectivity. It is important to us to enable maximum flexibility and independence from devices or operating systems – regardless of location and in any situation,” explains Christoph Schneider, Director Product Management at TeamViewer.
