TeamViewer is a popular tool for connecting to computers remotely. It is as easy as installing the software (or using the portable version without installation), sharing the ID and password from the TeamViewer screen with whom you want to share the screen. There is no complex configuration required for remote connections any more. One thing that forces us to look for TeamViewer alternative is that it is not free. TeamViewer is free for personal use only. Although I use it for my personal activities but sometimes it gives me an error that corporate use has been detected and TeamViewer stops working. This is very frustrating. That’s why we look for an alternative which works as smoothly as TeamViewer but is free or open-source.
