Host version not showing a password on mac

Hi,  I'm attempting to setup TeamViewer Host on a Mac so I can remote access it with my PC.

I downloaded Host and installed on the Mac, however when I run it I see the attached screen.  I get the 9 digit ID number but it doesn't display a 4-digit password.

When I attempt to remote in using the PC, it's asking me for the password, but the Host isn't giving me one.  Help!

Re: Host version not showing a password on mac

Hi bassbells,

If you want to use a random password to connect to a host module, make sure that it's activated.

You can find this option on a Mac under "TeamViewer - Preferences - Security".
