I used TeamViewer a year or so ago and I thought the default installation was the the Client/Pal you are helping had to let you in (accept you the Server/Controller).
The other day I set a pal up with teamviewer and he said that I just connected and that he had no warning that I was connecting.
Obviously we exchanged ID and Password over the phone.
He should have been warned that I was connecting and been given the option to refuse.
Where is the option to stop auto/unattended access?
Thank you for your message. 🙌
If you exchanged the password via the phone, then we are the in attended access context.
Of course you can set up unattended access and disable it. 😊
You will find all the information you need in our Knowledge Base article here: Secure unattended access to devices
You will also find all the information about how passwords work in a TeamViewer context here: All about passwords
I hope this could help. 🍀

Thanks for your reply.
It seems I have not expressed my requirement correctly.
I have done a test using a spare PC, lets call the spare PC myPal.
When I connect to myPal via Teamviewer I get instant access to myPal, this should not happen!
myPal should get a warning that I want to connect to myPal's PC; then mPal could let me in or refuse.
Thank you for your these additional details.
There can be two reasons why a connection establishes with a simple click to a remote computer:
If you want that the remote PCs you are connecting to get a warning and have to authorize your connection, you need to use the Remote control prompt for confirmation button:
Now, you should have all the information to sort this out. 🤓
