In an updated version of TeamViewer there is an additional layer of security of users’ accounts gained by Two-Factor Authentication. Besides, it gives the possibility to share large files and copy necessary material from any device and paste straight onto a remote desktop in an old-fashioned way - Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V.

A new public API is one more surprise by the developers of TeamViewer9. It has been designed in order to help corporate companies to integrate TeamViewer funcionallity into their own infrastructure. Gladly, API is available for all who have purchased a TeamViewer 9 license.
