How to disable remote access

I only need TeamViewer to access customer's systems for troubleshooting purposes.
Company policy is to not allow remote access to my computer.

How do I disable remote access while the TeamViewer client is running?

Re: How to disable remote access

Hello @PiersUsoWalter 

Thank you for your post.

You can prevent access to any device running TeamViewer using a whitelist, or by changing the settings for the Access Control  under Advanced Settings for connections to this computer.

I hope this helps!
