Unattended access for free account

We use Teamviewer 12 with our company so that I can easily access my work computer from home and vice-versa. We also have it installed on the three computers in our office so that if we need to access someone else's desktop without having to interrupt them, we can. All the computers EXCEPT my home are Windows. My home has a Mac. I can never access my Mac from the office because the password always changes. How can I disable it? Thank you for any help! :)

Re: Unattended access for free account

Hi @giantjanitorial

You can activate a permanent password for anattended access on your mac.

The setup is very close to the setup on Windows devices. Just browse into the TeamViewer settings via Preferences --> Security.

In our Knowledge Base, you can find a very good description: https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/Secure-unattended-access-to-devices/ta-p/1227 (the description is for Windows devices, but the steps are also valid for Mac).

All the best, Esther
