Bonus tip: An easier way to remotely access unattended computers

TeamViewer provides free unattended access services. However, its free version has limitations. The first limitation is that TeamViewer will block your connections if it suspects you are using it for commercial use. The second limitation is that some features are unavailable in the free version, for example, multiple remote sessions.

So, you may need a TeamViewer alternative. We highly recommend the free remote access software AnyViewer. AnyViewer provides users with free unattended remote access. Besides, AnyViewer is much easier to set up. What’s more, AnyViewer is free for 2 concurrent remote sessions, while TeamViewer only supports 1.
