TeamViewer, a leading global provider of secure remote connectivity solutions and workplace digitalization technology, today announced it will enable two-factor authentication (TFA) for incoming connections to complement with existing security features, like TFA for accounts and the end-to-end encryption of connections TeamViewer is known for.
TeamViewer accounts already could be secured with two-factor authentication, which is recommended by security experts. However, incoming connections can now be secured with TFA to raise awareness of every connection established at any point in time.
The optional security feature can be set up for all TeamViewer remote control connections and is executed via push notifications. After one or multiple mobile devices are registered, users will be asked to allow or deny each connection via the registered devices.
“We are constantly updating our security features to provide the most secure remote connectivity solution while being committed to our easy-to-use approach,” explains Christoph Schneider, Director Product Management at TeamViewer. “No matter if for business purposes or non-commercial users, with the layered approach of multiple security features everyone can adapt the level of security to their needs,” he adds.
TeamViewer TFA for connections is available for all Windows clients. macOS and Linux are in development and will be released within the upcoming months. A detailed guide on how to set up the TFA for connections can be found in the TeamViewer Community.
