Default Teamviewer Password

I installed Teamviewer app around last month or so and went to use it today but don't see the phone's password. Is there a way to get the password so I can connect from the PC to the phone?

Can the password be changed to alphanumeric or only numbers?

When I open the app on the phone, it show the phone's ID but not the password. When I open it up on the PC, I see the ID & PW for the PC.

Thnx.

It's been awhile since I've used Teamviewer, but I think you need to set the password from the PC, not the app. So if you wanted to change the password, I would recommend looking in the PC's program.

You can use either the dynamic password that shows up on the device, or set a permanent password on it, using whatever characters you like. I think it's much more convenient to set up a permanent password, so you don't need to get the new password from the device.

What I'm trying to do now is use the PC to connect to the phone. What do I need to do that with? I want the phone to be the remote client.

Thnx.

Thanks. It was beginning to look like it wasn't possible. I'll check out some of the others.

No, Teamviewer won't do that. Airdroid will, but not nearly as completely, and only on the same network.
