Preventing others from changing my password/settings

Hello,

I want to install TeamViewer on a client's computer and give myself unattended access. I do not want them to be able to change their permanent password. Is there a way to put a password on them changing their password? I am not sure if that makes sense. For example, I gave someone the permanent password to log into my computer, but once they were in, they had access to go and change my password/settings. How do I prevent this?

Thank you.

Hello Shelby,

If you want to put an password on your teamviewer? You can by doing this on the remote pc that you want to connect to,

How about a way to do it globally. From each individual client is cumbersome and quite frankly backwards from what it should be.
