Your download site is trying too hard to be clever. I am on my main Linux machine, but I'm trying to download the TV client for MSWindows. But whenever I click on the MSWindows page, and click on the download button, your site continues to redirect me to the Linux download page. If I have specifically selected the MSWin download page, then that is the one I want to download. If your system is going to decide to redirect me every time, then why even bother listing the other platforms? You might as well just have a single product page, since you seem to think you know better than I do of what I am trying to do.

Tested it against a couple MSWin machines (MSW7 & MSW10) from my LinuxMint 18.2 system and the unmute microphone is gone. It wasn't a question of a "nuisance" message, but rather that it looked and felt like a potential security hole. So I'm hoping you simply haven't hidden the prompt but left the hole there.

Thank you for your reply.
We certainly did not mean to offend you by marking my previous post as the solution to your question. I can assure you that we have no quotas to fulfill. The Community is a user-driven community – the majority of posts and solutions are therefore created by users, not by TeamViewer staff.
We absolutely agree with you that the user who posted the question should also choose the solution that, in their opinion, best answers their question.
However, if we notice that someone contributed a solution to a question and the person who started the thread does not react in any way for several days or even weeks, we may take the liberty of marking the solution ourselves. Our only aim in doing this is to make it easier for all of our users to access helpful information by highlighting the solution to a specific problem.
We are sorry that you do not agree with our choice in this particular case and appreciate your getting back to us.
I understand that two-factor authentication is not an option if you quite simply do not have a smartphone. And don’t worry, we do not look down on people who don’t – there are people among our own staff who do not own one, either ;)
If the problem concerning your browser verification persists, I would still recommend taking a closer look at your cookie settings.
As an alternative, you could add the TeamViewer client itself to your trusted devices and then access the Management Console from there. In oder to do this, please try to access your account in your Computers & contacts list in your installed TeamViewer client and add it to your trusted devices (in that case, you should see the related TeamViewer ID in the verification email). Once the device has been added and you are signed in to the Computers & contacts list, you can open the Management Console from within the client via “Connection > Open Management Console”. In this case, no additional browser verification is needed.
I hope this was helpful. Should you have any further questions, feel free to let us know.
All the best,
