      If you are installing TeamViewer in your personal computer to remotely access your work computer, it might not be absolutely necessary to set up a password in your personal computer. However, if you are configuring your work computer’s password, make sure to contact your IT Coordinator first.

    3. Click on ‘Finish’, the TeamViewer client should open up.

  3. Authorize system access to TeamViewer
    1. A yellow warning sign should initially appear on the upper left corner labeled as “Check System Access”, click on it.
    2. A pop-up window should appear. We need to provide permissions to TeamViewer to access all system capabilities necessary for it to function properly. First, let’s grant it Screen Recording access. Click on “Open Screen Recording Preferences”.
