Not show ID

Hello, is it possible not show the ID for my user that only can connect in another teamviewer? What I need is to find a way that the person that is going to connect doesn't have an ID, so no one can connect in that machine... is that possible?

Re: Not show ID

If I want to connect and help people, but I don't want anyone to connect to me...

Options > Advanced > Access Control = Deny incoming remote control sessions

Display ID and Password

Hiding the ID:

I don't know a way to make the ID show up as a dash (- - - ), but there are some alternatives.

  • If there is no Internet connection, the ID will change to your IP address. But you won't be able to connect to any computer outside your LAN.
  • If you enable the new user interface preview, you have 4 different tabs that can be displayed. Only one of them shows your ID. 

Options > General Tab > Check Use new user interface (preview)

 

Hiding (or showing) your temporary password:

The password is displayed as blank or dashes if there is no temporary password. Options for temporary passwords are in:

Options > Security Tab > Password strength

No password means it is set to disabled.

Re: Not show ID

This is perfect. That helps a lot!! Thank you for this !! 

Besides that is it possible not to show the ID, or is it not possible?

Re: Not show ID

If you are talking about the message that shows current connections, I don't think that can be hidden. The message can be minimized, but your ID will still be there. Your ID will also show up in the local log files.

Re: Not show ID

It is actually the password I believe he is talking about.  My password comes up like a dash, just like his picture.  How do I get a password to come up?  It used to bring one up automatically.

Thanks!

Hide ID and Password

When user execute TeamViewer app, it shown ID and Password. We don't want nobody to see it. How do I prevent users to see Your ID and Password when they launch TeamViewer 14 (assume I write down the PC's TeamViewer ID and password of that device) teamviewer.jpg
