AnyDesk for Commercial Use

Detected as a commercial user?

Your user pattern suggests you are using AnyDesk on a professional, work-related level. The free version of AnyDesk only allows private use for non-professional scenarios. Find out what commercial use is, if purchasing a licence could be an option for you, and how you should react if wrongly suspected of using AnyDesk commercially.

Why do I receive this pop-up?

You are currently using a free version of AnyDesk and your user behaviour indicates that you are using our free licences for commercial purposes. If you have already purchased a licence, please make sure to log in with your user account when using AnyDesk to avoid being wrongly categorised as a private user.

Is this the same as with other providers?

No, we do not handle this the same way as our competitors. Our intention is to restrict abusers, not our private user community. When AnyDesk is used professionally, a paid licence is required. This way, we can continue offering a free version for private use and help you support family and friends without having to pay.

What can I do if I'm wrongly restricted?

If you believe you have been wrongly categorised as a commercial user, please request to get whitelisted, so we can look into your case individually. If you already have a licence, please insert your licence key into your AnyDesk client, so we can identify you correctly. Not sure how? Here's a step-by-step guide.

Have more questions?

The meaning of commercial use (or professional use) defines as follows: You are using AnyDesk for professional, work-related purposes. Examples are remote work and remote support scenarios. Using AnyDesk at home to access your workstation in the office also qualifies as a commercial use definition. Learn more about the differences between the
professional and private use of AnyDesk.

When used commercially, users require a paid licence. We offer licences for different needs and requirements. In this Help Centre article, you will find a detailed overview of all available licences for professional use and who we recommend them to. Learn what features are included and choose the licence that matches your needs best.

Free users without a user account may experience more limitations in features. To expand your connection time and avoid timeouts as a free user, you can create a AnyDesk user account free of charge. If you want to experience the full range of features, we recommend purchasing one of our paid licences for professional use.

Our free version includes: 3 managed devices, Mobile Device Support, File Transfer, limited TCP-Tunnelling, 1 Address Book, Two-Factor Authentication, Text Chat, Whiteboard, Session Invitation, and access to our Help Centre. Compare the complete feature portfolio here.

Additional features increase your productivity and help you create new opportunities.
