Change all host passwords

We recently picked up a client that has 20 users all at the same location and the previous IT client also uses Teamviewer and they have host setup on all workstations with a saved password.   

How can we change that saved password and add all workstations to our account?  We need to remove their access to workstations and also want to be able to connect easily.  Do we have to hunt down all pc's and uninstall/reinstall teamviewer on all, or is there a registry key or file that has the password saved so we can do it all remotely?

Re: Change all host passwords

If you have a pro account and your client has a Windows domain with Active Directory, you can redeploy TeamViewer MSI to change settings. -- TeamViewer MSI Manual.PDF

There are registry entries at HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\TeamViewer - I use them for queries, but have not had luck making changes this way.

Otherwise, for 20 machines, this can be done manually. I think you need admin rights to remove account assignments.

  • Options > General Tab > Click Remove -- This is also where you assign the computer to your account.
  • Options > Security Tab > 
    • Change personal password
    • Uncheck Grant easy access 
    • Set Windows logon to Not Allowed (in case old tech knows local admin credentials)
    • Manage additional passwords > remove any entries
  • Options > Advanced Tab > Show Advanced Options > (scroll to bottom) Protect options with password

You may also want to check the black and whitelist under the security tab.
