Hi @juda_k 

Kindly make sure you save the Android device with the password on the shared group please. So that other collegues may have access to the device while the password for authentication is also shared with others but only shows as asterisk.

Re: Android host is asking for a password

Hi @juda_k ,

Thankyou for your post.

If you would like to share an Andorid host device with other collegues without password, kindly try the steps below:
1) save the TeamViewer ID from Android host into one of your groups under TeamViewer Computers & Contacts;
2) create and save the personal password under Property for the Android host;
3) share the designate group to other collegues with the permission of Full control;
4) the collegues shoule be fine to connnect to the Android host without input password.

Please noted that once the group is shared with Full control, other users have the rights to add, edit and delete the group content.

Hope it works.

Re: Android host is asking for a password

we already have shared groups 

let's say that i'm creating a new device,it will be under my computer list,you say that i need to put a password under properties and then move it to a group and everyone will be able to log in?
