An Important Note Before You Start:

Please note that account deletion is a permanent action. This is important to remember. If you need to retrieve and keep any data associated with the account, you need to do so before deleting your account. Indeed: all data, including groups, computers and contacts, will be irreversibly deleted along with your account .

Quick Summary of Steps to Delete Local TeamViewer App and Data

If you are in a rush to proceed with deleting data from your machine, but not actually after deleting you account as such, then this is for you.

Bear in mind, this affects only what is saved on your current device, which means you may have other machines holding this information. And more importantly, your account will not be deleted by this action, only the locally held application and data.

In short, you need to perform the following steps.

  1. Navigate to c:program files (x86)teamviewer in the File Explorer.

  2. Look for uninstall.exe and run it to uninstall the TeamViewer software.

  3. Disable any TeamViewer services found in the Services panel.

Step-by-Step Guides for Deleting TeamViewer Accounts:

1. TeamViewer (Classic) Account Deletion:

To delete your TeamViewer (Classic) account, follow these steps:

2. Deleting a TeamViewer Account from within a Company Account:

Before performing the above steps, you will need to contact the administrator who may proceed with the deletion of your company related profile and your individual account. The administrator may also delete only your profile and company accesses from within the company account, then leave you to carry out the above account deletion steps for your personal account.

Technically, in Europe, you are more likely to experience this second event, since Data Protection Law will require you to delete your own account yourself rather than allow the company IT personnel to do so. Other regions may differ.

TeamViewer Accounts Management for Businesses

Businesses using TeamViewer may encounter the need to delete accounts belonging to former staff members from their company's TeamViewer. However, based on several posts on the TeamViewer community forum, the platform's account deletion process falls short in providing a bulk solution to this task.

Are you interested in a simple and affordable yet secure and powerful solution to use instead of TeamViewer? Then our own TSplus Remote Support software could be just what you have been looking for.

Agents, Groups and Data Management With TSplus Remote Support

By default, sessions are not shared, but an agent can invite one or more others, on a case by case basis, great for team work and more. Our software being self-hosted in dedicated servers, connexions are rapid and interventions fluid. Then, as all logs are locally held, TSplus has access to no client data whatsoever. Finally, beyond the Agent Accounts tab, the administrator also has direct access to licence related aspects directly within the TSplus licencing portal.

General Account Management and Related Issues in Company Accounts

In any accounts management scenario, not being unable to completely remove deleted users is likely to lead to those users remaining assigned to closed and expired cases in a company’s service queue. This inability to unassign users presents a potential challenge when the account owner is no longer accessible, as in the case of old staff members.

As a consequence, General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance questions will arise since, so long as the individual does not delete the account themselves, the company will be left with this open-ended situation.

Planning for Appropriate Data and Accounts Management

This leaves a joint responsibility with businesses and employees: to collaborate in going through all the steps required to preserve personal and company data and accesses from being left available to potential issues such as cyber-attacks. And with any company lies the responsibility of closely examining available options when choosing software, services and any other suppliers or products.

It is worth finding out in advance how data and account information will be processed, held, deleted, etc. It may sway your decisions towards one or another solution.
