TeamViewer never change temp password after the remote session

Hi, i recently discover once i give my ID and temp password for a remote session, at the end of that the passwoprd still be the same. When other person connect to my PC no alert ask to me to allow the connection so I suppose... If i go out from my PC the other operator can connect again to my remote PC without any consent and will have full access to my machine.

This seems to be a security issue.

 

By default was not selected to change password every session end so i belive default settings has a potential security issue. Please check.

Hi @peopleinside 

Thanks for your feedback. I will gladly pass it to our product team.

The community team's recommendation is to set the Random password after each session to Generate new if you are using the random password for connections.

Re: TeamViewer never change temp password after the remote session

Hi Esther, thank you very much for your reply!
I hope your day is going weel and I'm happy to read you.

I agree with you, reccomandations should be to set the randoom password so why as default TeamViewer is not using this settings?

Thanks for passing this to the team, I think is important.
I faced again issues on posting in community, this many month ago and also in those days... so I contacted your company by Facebook. Now seems I can post again but your community seems have issue too for member like me. Every time I need support here I loose my post because of errors on posting :)

Hi @peopleinside 

Sorry to hear you had issues posting on the community.

I think I need to check with our vendor why this happens to some of our users every now and then.

Have a great Friday,

Esther
