Hi all

Looking for a Teamviewer alternative that still stays connected when logging out of a user profile to log into the admin profile?
Preferably free or relatively cheaper.

Thanks

I wonder if Google Remote Desktop might work since chrome runs as a background service basically regardless of who is logged in.

I always thought Teamviewer was the only option and best option - but a friend introduced me to anydesk - check it out - has a mac version - no limits and free too if i m not mistaken - whether it has features you are requesting for is another thing but give it a spin and see. https://anydesk.com/remote-desktop

You could try RealVNC or TightVNC. I can access the PC BEFORE I have logged in, so I assume that you can log out and log in again. Remote setup via the internet is more complex than TeamViewer, but local-network access is very easy to set up.

The android app VNC Viewer by 16nine is also free for its basic functions, if you need to access the PC from an android device.

Thanks all for the suggestions - will check them out.
I have already tried Anydesk - goes to black screen on logout - can't do anything after (remotely that is).
