Endpoint Requirements

📄 How to set up remote access on your device (managed device)

🚨IMPORTANT: Setup of remote access is done on the remote device itself. It is not possible to set up remote access for another device from your local device.

User requirements

To install TeamViewer Remote Management services on an endpoint, the TeamViewer account must have correct permissions. These permissions are provided based on the assigned Roles the members of the Company Profile have.

📄 Learn More about TeamViewer Roles


TeamViewer Remote Management has its own set of permissions, signifying what each member of a Company Profile is able to do in regard to the services. These permissions are as follows:

  • Manage policies - User can alter/edit Remote Management policies
    • Assign policies - User can push Remote Management policies to devices
  • View & acknowledge all alerts/threats
    • View & acknowledge own alerts/threats

📌Note: With TeamViewer Backup, only the assigned account can install the service or restore data from the Management Console. It is not possible to bypass this permission.

Changing user permissions

By default, Business License users and Company Admins/Admins on Company Profiles can install TeamViewer Remote Management services. Members of a Company Profile in the User role, however, have no ability to affect Remote Management devices or services.

In the event a user needs access to the Remote management devices/services, their role must be updated. This can be accomplished by creating a new Remote Management User Role. Please see the following video for how to begin creating the new Role:

📌Note: When creating the new Roles, you will find all respective Remote Management permissions to the right of their respective service name.
