Disable file sharing as a Administator?

Can file sharing be disabled as an Administrator so that normal users cannot turn it back on?

On the current settings, normal users can go into Advanced Settings and turn on File Sharing.

Is there a way to prevent this?

Thank you for your message.

Yes, this is possible.

You can enforce this setting via a TeamViewer policy.

You will find all the information you need in our Knowledge Base article here: How to add a new settings policy

So basically, what you need to do is to

  • Assign the devices you want to manage to your TeamViewer account. You will find the article about it here: How do I assign a device to my TeamViewer account?
  • Add the policy Access Control (incoming connections)
  • Edit it and at Access control and select Customer settings and then for Transfer files select Denied
  • Customize the other parameters how you want restrict or allow incoming connections on your devices
  • Tick the box Enforce and press Save
  • Apply the policy to the devices you want to protect by clicking on Assign TeamViewer policies

Henceforth, the users won't be able to enable File transfer on their devices.

I hope this could help. If not, do not hesitate to ask your questions here.
