What is TeamViewer?
TeamViewer is one of the leading remote control and desktop sharing software in the world, with versions supporting Windows based platforms, Mac OS, Linux, and iOS, Android operating systems. The program is proprietary (developed by TeamViewer GmbH, which is a German software company established in 2005), although it is free for personal usage. TeamViewer is mostly used by tech support agents from tech companies or the customer support staff of PC manufacturers who are required to guide the customer with a step-by-step demonstration of how to fix their problems.
TeamViewer is touted as a remote control software – wherein another can take control of another user’s desktop through the software – but other collaboration tools are also included, such as web conferences, file transfer, and presentation utilities.
It is important to note that TeamViewer can’t be used to exploit the security vulnerabilities of the remote computer, since for this to work both computers must have the TeamViewer software installed, the host machine must provide the username and password to the computer that will connect, and the connection is handled through TeamViewer’s servers. There are instances however that speed is a necessity and some computers bypass this completely, creating an ad hoc connection through TCP or UDP between the two computers.
