Disable Lock on Session End

Seems that Teamviewer is setting the "Lock on Session End" to enabled by default. How do I disable this permanently?

Re: Disable Lock on Session End

Hi @WWGJMRiggs 

Thanks for your question.

You can define the logic of the "lock remote computer" feature for your connections in your advanced TeamViewer settings.

Go to Extras --> Options --> Advanced --> Advanced settings for connections to other computers --> Lock remote computer --> Depending on your preferences, choose Always, Never or Automatic

  • Always: Will lock any remote computer after finishing a TeamViewer remote control session independently whether the computer was locked or unlocked at the beginning of the session
  • Never: Will never lock the remote computer after finishing a TeamViewer remote control session regardless whether the computer was locked or unlocked at the beginning of the session
  • Automatic
    • Will lock the remote computer after finishing a TeamViewer remote control session if the computer was locked at the beginning of the session. 
    • Will not lock the remote computer after finishing a TeamViewer remote control session if the computer was unlocked at the beginning of the session.

 

For more information, please see also this chapter in the Knowledge Base article "All about the TeamViewer Remote Session Toolbar".

I hope the info helps you.

Best,

Esther

@OUR This has been an issue for a LONG time now. TV seem to be just ignoring it...
