Re: Changing ID

I just did a test. Windows 7 64bit running TeamViewer 12 Host. Uninstall, made sure I checked remove settings, then I re-installed TeamViewer.

The ID stayed the same. :manfrustrated:

I don't work for TeamViewer. I'm just a user.

Re: Changing ID

Hi guys,

Thanks for your posts!

The TeamViewer ID is unique to the computer or device that the software is installed on so there is not a way to change this. 

If you are concerned about security, like someone knowing your current ID you can read the following article to see how to secure your TeamViewer.

https://community.teamviewer.com/t5/Knowledge-Base/Features-for-bulletproof-support-with-TeamViewer/...

The section about Company Profile is only applicable if you are having a TeamViewer license, otherwise you can test it as a trial.

Hope this is helpful!

Jonathan

Re: Changing ID

No... That we need is the chance to clone multiple times a virtual machine and then have the chance to CHANGE the TeamViewer iID on that machines... because ALL THEM get the SAME ID!!!! Uninstalling reseting data and re install DONT WORK! Why??? give us a solution because that is a serious bug!
