With TeamViewer (Classic)'s Easy Access feature, you can easily remote control your remote device without entering any ID or password when logged in to your TeamViewer account.
This method can be classified as very secure because such access is only possible via a TeamViewer account, which is additionally protected with Two-factor authentication or the Trusted Device feature.
This article applies to all TeamViewer (Classic) users.
