Hi,

does anyone use team viewer to remotely check in to your miners?

is there any concerns with someone hacking your mining operation?

i have been told you should have a virgin computer with nothing on it and i'll be fine...is this correct?

thank you for your time and information

TeamViewer offers 2FA with Google Authenticator.  I use it on my rigs and it works great.  It has saved me several times when I've been out and about and get a notice that a rig has stopped working.

Works really great for administering them as well from a single PC.  There may be other services that would be better or more secure even, but for smaller miners I don't think TeamViewer is that bad as long as you have 2FA enabled and are monitoring your mining.

 I had a Bitcoin wallet stolen using TeamViewer.  Luckily the wallet was encrypted.  If you are diligent with your security you should have no problems with Teamviewer.  Have a unique password and change it every so often.

EDIT: Teamviewer wasn't hacked in this instance, my credentials were compromised.  As I stated above, have a unique and complex password for it and you should be fine.

The problem with using Teamviewer if you have a few rigs is that they will eventually decide that you need to upgrade to a business license.

If you hit that, just switch over to Chrome Remote Desktop. It is free and it works just as well.

I use more than 4 years, even before using in mining, never had problems with TeamViewer, if someone has something stolen, it is necessary to look for the reason elsewhere. The only nuance, after long-term use, it ceases to be free, or rather you can use it 1 minute every 15 minutes, and the annual license is expensive in comparison with analogs.

does anyone remote connect to your internet company and go into your miners from there?

yep, I do that

just ensure that your company policies allowed it

most probably on security or firewall policies allowing remote connections
