Credentials required when connecting?

I read this

https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/TeamViewer-12/HowTo-Secure-unattended-access/m-p/1164#M16

Just want to make sure I understood this correctly.

I have 3 computers I normally Remote into, untill recently when I had to abruptly leave one of the computers unattended (Logged into TV), for the entire day,  some friendly co-worker changed my Home PC's wallpaper to some hilarious one. albeit this was a "prank", I cant help but think I was lucky and glad it wasn't someone else with more ill intent.

I've been searching for a way to use Teamviewer but also require it to ask me for a password EVERY time I double-click on any of the PCs on my list. I tried the "Dont save passwords" option but now it asks me to wait for Partner to confirm the remote session, so now I'm locked out of my Home PC till work finishes and I can go home to verify what went wrong (grant easy access?)

Will following the above guide help me do that or is there another option I should check/change.

Thank you.

For Anyone that landed here and was confused like I was.

Follow the link's steps and then, Log out on all devices that are not secure (Public, School, Work..etc).

What you NEED is the Teamviewer Number, the 9 digit number of the Device you have TV installed on. after following the steps in the Link, you can logon to these devices using the Number, at this point you are asked that "personal" password you  just set up.

Now you have Unattended access WITH password and no worrying about similar issues like mine.

9 digits is easy to remember dont fret.

So Logged in from home you can access you other devices using the Logged in panel on the right of TV's main window, with the list of all your assigned devices.

When you go out (School,Work..etc) and you need to remote back home or to any of the other devices, DONT log in, just in put the 9 digit number in the "Partner ID" spot and radio button to Remote Control, you will be prompted for a password and bam you're in, now when you're done, end session and no worries about security (delete the number from the drop down, click the tiny X next to the 9 digit)

Hi @Zubin

that link you have indicated is a useful method that suits your request.
He has received a lot of kudos, even by TeamViewer's technical staff, so I think it can be considered valid.
