Global technology company and leading provider of a connectivity platform, TeamViewer, enables two-factor authentication (TFA) for connections to complement with existing security features, like TFA for accounts and the end-to-end encryption of connections.
TeamViewer accounts can be secured with two-factor authentication since a long time already, which is recommended by security experts. From now on, incoming connections can be secured with TFA in addition to raise awareness of every connection established at any point in time, the company said.
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,” said TeamViewer Director Product Management Christoph Schneider.
“No matter if for business purpose 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, the company added in a release.
