I've been using Free Teamviewer for a few years to access my home PCs, my mum's PC and a couple of other devices at our holiday home. All been working well however recently it looks like I have fallen foul of the 'commercial use policy' and Teamviewer is dropping access after a minute. Not sure why, I did add a friends laptop on and they work in a hotel and may have connected it there.

Recommendations for alternatives? Ideally free? I need unattended access.

This will give you access to three unattended devices.
Might work if you can do more attended devices sessions?

Thanks. Does it offer unattended access to remote devices? Can't see from the blurb.

Another vote for Anydesk, and yes unattended access works, you have to enable it and set a password. Been using it for about a year now and cant vault it.

You can always contact TeamViewer and explain the situation and that no actual commercial use.

I was punted off them after using to help my folks pc and phones. Contacted them expecting nothing and a few weeks later got the free access back.

I suspected they stopped me after I used TeamViewer to access my folks pc while working though a VPN for my day job in a different browser window at the same time.
