Hi friends, your friend steven is back again. We have seen many changes so far in technology and the way we use our gadgets. Today we are going to discuss Teamviewer alternatives. You might be thinking that why I am discussing Teamviewer alternatives today. As we all know that Teamviewer is a big name in remote desktop software, but like everything in the world has its fair share of pros and cons. The most frustrating thing about Teamviewer is configuring it on your laptop or computer for beginners it’s like a herculean task if the software is not configured correctly on your computer then it’s like risking your privacy. As we all know that the free version of Teamviewer is available, but it is not suitable for use in the long run. If you are using Teamviewer for business purposes, then it might cost you a bit of fortune, so without any further ado, let’s start.
Whenever I think about alternatives for Teamviewer, the first remote desktop software that comes in my mind is AnyDesk. Like Teamviewer, AnyDesk has features that will make you spellbound. Still, the most fantastic feature that AnyDesk has is the fastest data transmission at 60 FPS speed that gives you a hassle-free user experience. The other great feature is the low latency rate. It means that even if you are accessing your laptop or computer remotely, it gives you feel that as if you are using the computer, which you are accessing remotely. Your actions are transferred in just a wink that gives you a natural feel. AnyDesk works on almost any platform, whether you are using Android, Linux, Windows, Ios, FreeBSD. If you are thinking about privacy while using AnyDesk, then you don’t have to worry because AnyDesk uses banking standard privacy system TLS 1.2 with the additional power of RSA 2048 systematic encryption, which ensures that your privacy is protected from unauthorized entry. A month ago, AnyDesk received an update 4.0 that has added many additional features in AnyDesk, such as file browser mode, session recording, so that you can access the session whenever you wish to. Terminal support AnyDesk is a tool that you should try if you are looking for Teamviewer alternatives.
