UM IT Help Desk Remote Support

TeamViewer remote support

TeamViewer is a remote assistance software program used by UM IT help desk staff and student technicians to connect to UM faculty, staff and student computers to help troubleshoot and resolve issues. As a security measure, you must give permission through a TeamViewer ID and Password system (explained below) for  UM IT personnel to access your computer.

Only perform this process when directed to do so by IT Central help desk personnel.
