Re: setup permanent password on client withTeamviewer 12

Hi commtech65,

Thank you for your post. 

You can set up a permanent password in the TeamViewer settings of the remote machine. Please open the main window of the remote TeamViewer client and go to "Extras > Options > Security > Personal password". Enter a password of your choice, enter it once again to confirm it and click on "OK" at the bottom of the window to save your choices.

I hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to let us know!

All the best, 

Katharina

Re: setup permanent password on client withTeamviewer 12

hey there

in response to this solution about setting a locked password, you suggested """"Extras > Options > Security > Personal password"""" i can not find the menu path in the extras menu.

I have found a security tab in the the preferences menu and have set a password but on each luanch of team viewer the ID remains the same but the 4 digit numerical password changes how do I make sure each computer keeps the same loging info.

I have set up an account, added a computer / device and will add a further 1 or 2.

will this insure that I dont need to worry about the 4 digit pass word changing ?

The 4-digit password (or however many digits you choose it to be) is just an alternative way of logging in, if you haven't set a password for a specific machine.

For example, if you remote a PC at work, and you have pre-set the password "password" for it, then you can either remote-in with the password "password", or whatever the changing multi-digit code presented on-screen is.

Just ... don't use "password" as your password ;) hehe.

Tried that on a pc but didnt work - each launch it still required a unique password.

Hi Raven,

Thank you for posting the steps required to set a permanent password.  I have followed the steps, however:

1.  The password is not being saved, even though I clicked OK at the bottom of the Security page after changing it.

2. Only the randomly generated ID works. 

Does the pw change every time?  I left a session open on a computer I need to access, but I cannot login with current pw.

Thank you for the assistance.
