How to activate your Business license

📌 Important note for customers who purchased via the webshop after the 20th of March 2024: If you are a new customer and don't have a TeamViewer account, you will only have to set up a password after clicking the Confirm account button in the order confirmation e-mail. This will automatically create your TeamViewer account and activate the license. Once this step is done, you can immediately start using your Business license by signing in with your TeamViewer account via the TeamViewer full client.
