Passwords: the Community Password and Teamviewer Software Password
I have, by trial and error, satisfied myself that there is only one password for both the Teamviewer software and for this Community forum.
I was confused because when I start Teamviewer in order to access my other PCs (I have 5) the Teamviewer window opens at the "Computers and Contacts" window, and shows my 5 computers under "Recent Connections". I rarely enter my email address or password so they must both be saved in my profile in the software.
Then, recently, when I wanted to ask a question on this community, I was asked to sign in and I assumed that the community forum software wanted me to sign in with a new password - I assumed I was a "new user" on the forum and needed to create a new account. So I entered a new password. I can't remember the exact process involved but later discovered that I had to change the password to the Teamviewer software on my computers to the same "forum" password in order to access my other computers.
So if this Commmunity password also gives me access to my computers, where is the security to stop other people accessing my computers if they discover the password?
I'm sure the security is there, and is tied in with the computer IDs and passwords that I see in the "Allow Remote Control" window of the Teamviewer software. But I would appreciate it if it could be explained how this information is kept secure and safe from another person who has my Teamviewer password.
Thanks for any help you can give.
