We have compiled the following resources to help our customers with step-by-step instructions on how to reset remote access TeamViewer passwords:
Unattended Access and Security Tips
This article explains how to setup Unattended Access and to ensure the security of the remote computer.
- If you’re security-conscious (and you should be!) note that you can disable unattended access on the remote computer anytime you wish.
- In the TeamViewer menu in the System Tray, choose the Options item; or use its equivalent from the Extras menu in the TeamViewer Console. The TeamViewer Options screen appears.
- In the General menu, uncheck Start TeamViewer with Windows to disable the automatic launch of TeamViewer when that computer boots up, then click OK.
- In the Security menu, you can also click Configure to add your own Partner ID to the Black and whitelist for the remote computer. The Black- and whitelist appears.
- Select Allow access only for the following IDs and partners, then enter your base computer’s ID in the New entry field, click Add, then OK. Now, only your ID will have access to that remote computer.
- Note too, you or your partner can choose Exit TeamViewer in the TeamViewer system tray menu after a session. This disables unattended access until the remote computer is rebooted. If you’re connected as you do this, you’ll be disconnected.
- Finally, if you don’t want to use unattended access and are fairly satisfied with manually paired access, note that you can also increase the strength of the random password that TeamViewer generates for improved security. In the Options | Security menu, pick a password strength anywhere from 4 to 10 alphanumeric characters.
How to Set a Permanent Password in TeamViewer
This article explains how to set a permanent password in TeamViewer to allow a support agent to log in unattended.
TeamViewer is a well-known remote-desktop application that enables users to work on their client’s computer without having to visit them.
If you are in the receiving end while using TeamViewer, telling the ID and Password every time to grant access to your PC can be irritating. In this post, we’ll have a look at assigning a permanent password that will enable quick access to your PC. Do remember that using a static password has its share of flaws.
- Open TeamViewer and navigate to Extras > Options.
- Now, go to the Security tab and change the password under ‘Permanent Password for Unattended access’.
- You can now get a permanent ID by setting up permanent access from the Home Screen. Doing this generates a new password, but the permanent password which we created before remains an alias.
Note: By default, the password is set to 4 digits, but you may change this by clicking on the Password strength dropdown menu as seen in the 2nd screenshot. Consider signing up for a TeamViewer account for more features like creating a partner list, sending IMs while remotely working on their PC, etc.
