Have to allow each time with host app

I just installed the Teamviewer Host app on my Pixel 4 running Android 11.  Each time I connect to my phone from my PC, the phone pops up with attached warning, and I have to tap 'Start Now' before I can control the phone.  I have to tap 'Start Now' physically on my phone, which means I can only remote control my phone if I have it with me in my hand.  I want to be able to leave it out in the other room, which I believe is the point of the Host app?

Does anyone know how I can accomplish true unnattended access with the Host app?  I'm assuming there is some way to disable this warning, or 'auto-allow' it?  Thanks in advance!!!!

Edit:  Since I couldn't find any results googling for the exact phrase Start recording or casting with Host I thought I should add the text in here for indexing

    Thank you smpl for this solution! This has worked for me on a Samsung Tab A.

    Under App Ops, the app I had to search for was "Host" since I had the Teamviewer Host app installed on my Tab A. Once I was in there I was able to see the PROJECT_MEDIA permission and allowed it.

    For anyone else doing this on a Samsung Tab A, I had to connect the ADB via Powershell from my Win10 laptop twice and then had a successful connection. (Hold Shift and Right Mouse click in the ADB folder on Win10 to open a different menu and the "Open Powershell Window here" option is present.)

    I now have full Unattended Remote Access to the Tab A without the annoying popup.

    Cheers! 🍺

    This work-around worked for me. I have 2 identical Galaxy Tab A Tablets I use in trucks for ELD and this worked to access both with out the security popup!

    Thanks

    This solution worked for me too. Thanks @smpl for the steps and @fostex909 for the tip to look for host.

    You can also just run this ADB command:

    adb shell appops set com.teamviewer.host.market PROJECT_MEDIA allow

    [Updated post 11:38 a.m. 24Jul22] - The information posted above seems dated, as I just found a YouTube video titled "Unattended access from mobile to mobile using Teamviewer 2021." As the first person asking the question pondered it seems like the whole point to this is to be able to access another phone (or other device) without the need to physically give permission from the Host device. Anyway...this YouTube video appears to be the solution (you simply download "Teamviewer Host" to the Host phone. My problem is, for some unexplained reason, I cannot get the Teamviewer Host app to download to my phone. That is my question - Does anyone know why I would not be able to download this app [Note, I get a simple error message that cannot downloan now, "try again." And I have successfully downloan many many apps from Google Play.]



    [Original post (not answered) from 9:35 a.m. 24Jul22] In the solution provided above what is ADB, and Shizuku, and App Ops (you are talking over my head of sorts with shorthand)? Please give step-by-step instructions for how to get these apps (i.e., ADB, Shizuku and App Ops) on to my android phone (I am trying to control one phone from another phone without the Host being required to provide physical permission EACH time).

    Much easier method from https://www.imval.tech/index.php/blog/teamviewer-android-skip-the-confirm

    1. Enable developer mode on your phone (press ten times on the Build version in the system info)
    2. Enable USB debugging in the developer menu
    3. On your computer, with ADB (part of the platform tools, you can find other tutorials online), run the following command: adb shell appops set com.teamviewer.host.market PROJECT_MEDIA allow
    4. Voilà! You can now connect to your Android Smartphone with Teamviewer Host without having to press a confirm button, truly unattended.
