How can I setup a permanent password on the client (partner) with Teamviewer 12?
Thank you for your post.
You can set up a permanent password in the TeamViewer settings of the remote machine. Please open the main window of the remote TeamViewer client and go to "Extras > Options > Security > Personal password". Enter a password of your choice, enter it once again to confirm it and click on "OK" at the bottom of the window to save your choices.
I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to let us know!
All the best,
As of Sept 15, 2021 I was able to set up a Permanent Password on the Free Personal version on my Mac (the intended remote desktop) at:
TeamViewer (in the top bar)> Preferences> Advanced tab> Personal Password
Hope this helps anyone else with this problem!
in response to this solution about setting a locked password, you suggested """"Extras > Options > Security > Personal password"""" i can not find the menu path in the extras menu.I have found a security tab in the the preferences menu and have set a password but on each luanch of team viewer the ID remains the same but the 4 digit numerical password changes how do I make sure each computer keeps the same loging info.I have set up an account, added a computer / device and will add a further 1 or 2.will this insure that I dont need to worry about the 4 digit pass word changing ?
The 4-digit password (or however many digits you choose it to be) is just an alternative way of logging in, if you haven't set a password for a specific machine.
For example, if you remote a PC at work, and you have pre-set the password "password" for it, then you can either remote-in with the password "password", or whatever the changing multi-digit code presented on-screen is.
Just ... don't use "password" as your password hehe.
Thank you for posting the steps required to set a permanent password. I have followed the steps, however:
1. The password is not being saved, even though I clicked OK at the bottom of the Security page after changing it.
2. Only the randomly generated ID works.
Does the pw change every time? I left a session open on a computer I need to access, but I cannot login with current pw.
Thank you for the assistance.
Its 2021 it looks like unattended remote access is just not possible with Teamviewer
I am struggling to get unattended remote access working on :
I see above says :
"Extras > Options > Security > Personal password".
But, there is no such setting in the configurations on a Mac version of Teamviewer.
Can anyone explain how to set the password or avoid a password for computers that are in the allowed list and wish to gain unattended access.
Extras -> Options -> Advanced -> Show advanced options -> scroll down till it says personal password
