    Hi @erickb

    It looks like your randon password is disabled.

    You can enable the random password for spontaneous access in the TeamViewer options --> Security --> Password strength --> choose at least Secure (6 characters) 


    Otherwise you can connect via the personal password, which has been set for your device.

    All the best, Esther

    my screen is not at all the same than yours , I cannot choose a random password, there is already a password *****   but no idea what it is

    i'd like to remove that hidden password and get a random password each time

  • I CANT EVEN OPEN THE OPTIONS PAGE WHEN I TRY I GET "the options dialog is protected with a password. Please enter the password to access the options dialog." but i dont know the password bc its not shown on my screen. ive tried my personal logon password for teamveiwer but that doesnt work either.
