When TeamViewer is running, it is displayed next to the Windows taskbar. Tell me, is there a hidden mode in TeamViewer so that I can watch my subordinates discreetly, and they cannot turn off remote access to their PC?
Thus, there’s no hidden mode. But if you want to monitor the work of an employee continuously, you don’t need to hide the program, just configure so that it couldn’t be closed. For this:
- Log in to your TeamViewer account on the remote computer.
- Open the menu, then go to “Extras” – “Options” – “Advanced”, and click “Show advanced options”.
- Scroll all the way down, then check the “Disable TeamViewer shutdown” box, and set an “Options password”.
After that, it will be impossible to change the connection settings on the remote computer or exit the program without a password. The transfer of data between devices will stop only when the administrator (i.e. you) disables remote control.
