TeamViewer Offers Free Access To Some Business Users Due to Coronavirus [Unofficially]

Microsoft recently announced that some premium features of Microsoft Teams are now available for free. This decision was made to facilitate remote workers amid the coronavirus outbreak. But, the increase in the number of remote workers resulted in an unprecedented demand for other similar services.

It seems like another company is following the footsteps of Microsoft, and Google. TeamViewer, owned by Team Viewer AG, is preferred by billions of users to access remote computers or servers. The tool allows IT, administrators, to maintain remote PCs.

As we all know, individuals can use the software for free, while business users need to purchase the license. Notably, TeamViewer allows individual users to get unrestricted access to 3 machines. While the subscription is available for 9.90 euros per month.

TeamViewer Is Now Available Free Of Charge For Business Users

Apparently, the German company is now unofficially giving away access to the free version of TeamViewer to business users. However, the offer is not available for businesses like call centers that simultaneously use multiple connections.

On the other hand, those employees who are completely relying on remote work for a period of 2-3 weeks can now unofficially use the free version. It means that the application will not limit your access to the remote desktop available in your office for several weeks.

As a quick reminder, TeamViewer generally interrupts the connection at short intervals, if it suspects a professional use of the software. However, free access was recently provided to users in countries where the impact of Covid-19 is quite large. Now the same strategy is going to be adopted for German users.

Since, its a temporary change, TeamViewer has not advertised the free access to business users. We can see that more and more organizations are now encouraging their workforce to work remotely. This change would be a great opportunity for professional users to stay productive amid the Covid-19 crises.
