The teamviewer user interface comprises one small window with a very limited amount options, should be well within the ken of a billion dollar company, right?
the CORE FUNCTIONALITY, when you want someone to log into your computer, you have a 9 digit number you can give them. It's presented in the form:
123 456 789. If you copy and paste it will appear in an email
as 123 456 789.
So how come if the person at the other end then pastes that into
the partner id box it refuses to go in and whines about illegal characters???
Do they do any fucking usability testing?

I love teamviewer. I'm sure you a re running the Free version and they are the last ones providing this service for free, so STFU (and apologize).

Teamviewer is a great product. I have been using it for years to support family computers all over the place. If this is a system you log into regularly you can preset a password so it stays the same all the time. Then you can add that person to your partner list so all you do is click on that person to connect.

My son liked Teamviewer until they got hacked, then blamed their customers for being careless. Even those using two-factor authentication were hacked.
My son now uses some Chrome extension for his team meetings.

In fairness to teamviewer I believe that was a case of people reusing passwords for different purposes. People were using stuff like their email address and email address password as login details for their teamviewer account and also not bothering with 2FA on either.
In your teamviewer account you'll typically store the login and password for every computer you access regularly.
So then you could have free entry to any number of other machines.

Sounds like we don’t have the facts
Were 2FA accounts hacked?
