How to Test Anti Remote Desktop Control for Android in TeamViewer

Last updated April 25, 2024 by Appdome


TeamViewer is a remote access and control software that allows users to share their screens, control devices remotely, and transfer files between computers. While it offers benefits for legitimate remote support and collaboration, it can also pose a security risk if misused by attackers to gain unauthorized access to sensitive applications and data. This guide walks you through how to test the Anti Remote Desktop Control feature for iOS, a critical security layer provided by Appdome to ensure your application does not operate if TeamViewer is detected, effectively preventing unauthorized access attempts.


Performing the Test

To perform the test:

  1. Build an app with the Anti Remote Desktop feature enabled.
