As already discussed in the previous chapter it is in general only possible to make a connection to a device
- if the TeamViewer ID and the associated password is known or
- if the access is confirmed via Easy Access or
- the connection partner confirmed the access manually.
If non of the above points is given, it is not possible to access a device.
Via your Company Profile, you have even other options than discussed to manage and restrict access for users in your company.
What is the Company Profile?
Within the TeamViewer Management Console, it is possible to create an online company which allows you to use additional features to manage your license, groups, modules, user etc. in an easy and secure environment.
Benefits of a company profile
- change user permissions centrally.
- add users to your license (Premium, Corporate or Tensor) and
- create TeamViewer accounts to give the users the ability to log into any TeamViewer application and be working under the license.
Managing users as a company administrator in your company Profile also gives you access to:
- Connection reports (reports of user connections including date, time and frequency)
- Ability to deactivate or remove a user
- Ability to create channel groups
- Ability to share groups of contacts and devices and to manage group permissions
- Ability to change user account passwords
- Ability to change user permissions
Once you have activated your license on your TeamViewer account you can create your company profile and begin to add users.
Deploy TeamViewer with your specified settings
Export a settings file from a TeamViewer client. Since version 15.4, you will receive a *.tvopt file. In previous versions TeamViewer exported a *.reg file. For the import, you can use both file types, but we recommend you to use the *.tvopt file.
While deploying it in your network, your selected settings like restrict access control for incoming connections, LAN connections and other settings.

Deploy and enforce settings via policy
You can deploy all TeamViewer settings centrally via the Management Console for devices inside your domain and outside:
