TeamViewer launches itself automatically on Mac user login

TeamViewer (v. 15.1.3937) launches itself automatically everytime I log into one of my users on my Mac (running Catalina 10.15.2). I don't want, or need TeamViewer most sessions. It is a waste of CPU cycles and RAM. I would like to launch it only when I need it.

I looked in the Users & Groups system preferences under Login Items, but it is not listed there. How is it launching? What can I do to stop that, but still have it available when I need it? Please let me know.

    Thank you for your post and we are sorry to hear your negative experience.

    In order to stop the auto update of TeamViewer on Mac device, kindly check out the setting path please:

    TeamViewer -> Preference -> Advanced -> Update -> Check for new version -> Never;
                                                                                              -> Install new versions automatically -> No.

    Hope the change of settings would be helpful in your case.
