close instead of lock

Is there a way to change is so that when you close the session it just closes and doesn't lock the computer?

Re: close instead of lock

Hi @dmakhoul

You can pre-define which behaviour you would like to have in your TeamViewer Settings under Extras --> Options --> Advanced --> Advanced settings for connections to other computers --> Lock remote computer:

Here is the meaning of the different possibilities:

  • Automatic:  The remote computer will be locked, if it was also locked at the start of the connection.
  • Always:  The remote computer will always be locked after a connection. 
  • Never:  The remote computer will never be locked. 

I hope this helps you. 

All the best, Esther

Hello axxe,

Thank you for your message.

You cannot change these settings, as the automatic lock of the session is not possible for Mac OS.

If you need any further information, please let me know.

Cheers

Did you mean to say iOS?  I am talking about mac OS (Computer, not mobile device)

Hello axxe,

Thank you for your message.

I meant Mac OS, not iOS.

Sorry, for the mistake, I just corrected it.

Cheers
