Do Windows 10 automatic updates = changed TW password ??

I am going to leave for 2 weeks, I will need remote  access to my PC from abroad.

My worry : Microsoft is surely going to restart my PC, so the Teamviewer app is going to

restart with a new password that I will have no way to know.

Note : I could not find anything about permanent password/access for TW 12,

I could not find : configure permanent access option.

Please help !

The instructions aren't for 12, I'm sorry for that! It's still very simple to do. Just go to the "Extra" menu and select "Options",  then on the "Security" tab is where you set the password. I have included a screenshot of the section I'm referring to.

You just need to set it up for unattended access, by setting a permanent password then you won't have to worry about it. View the following link for full instructions:  https://www.teamviewer.com/en/res/pdf/first_steps_unattended_access_en.pdf

these instructions are not for Teamviewer 12, that is why I asked for help,

in TW12, the options in the link don't exist, there is nothing about permanent password
