How to change default for remote control.

Hi :smileyhappy:

Is it possible to change the Default Remote Control from "using password" to "Prompt for confirmation"?

Cheers, Björgvin

    The default is Full Access. Change to Confirm All. I think the incoming connection will still need a password too.


    I don't work for TeamViewer. I'm just a user.

    Hi and thank's for your reply :smileyhappy: It's not the answer I'm looking for though :cathappy:

    What I mean is: I want to click on the Computer I'm going to take over and the user gets a window on his side to accept me. Today, if I click on the computer it ask's for a password. The first one is MUCH faster and the user doesn't need to find Teamviewer on his side.

    So I want the default to be "prompt for confirmation" and not "using password".

    Cheers, Björgvin
