The teamviewer issue had nothing to do with teamviewer itself, it had to do with people reusing already compromised passwords for their remote control software, therefore allowing strangers access to their computer as the usernames and passwords have been hacked from another website.

This site lets you know if your credentials have been compromised.

I've been using Chrome Remote Desktop. The Android version isn't quite as good as TeamViewer, but on Windows it's pretty much the same, minus the built in file transfer function.

is the issue with people who use user name and password that automatically generated when you open the program or the ones who signed up and have a registered account?

I used one called "mouser" IIRC, it was meh.

TBH, I feel like using the Pro version on the desktop you want to access seems to be the best option.
