How to stop TeamViewer from starting automatically on Mac

TeamViewer is the global platform for the digital networking of people and machines: Whether remote access, remote maintenance, IT management, or the digitization of entire workforces, workflows, and industries – we have the right solution. For remote access, remote control, or remote maintenance, kindly download without registration from this link. Here, this is a bit different from stopping programs in macOS from running automatically as shown in this article “How to stop an application from starting up automatically on macOS“, and how to stop Cisco Webex Meetings from starting up automatically.

Here i am running TeamViewer 14.1.3399 as at the time of this writing. 

Here are the steps to disable TeamViewer from running automatically upon System startup or restart.
– Launch TeamViewer
– Under Unattended Access
– Uncheck ‘Start TeamViewer with System’

Next, a pop up windows appears, where you are asked to disable start with system. After this step is performed, TeamViewer will restart itself.

That is all you need to configure 🙂 I hope you found this blog post helpful. If you have any questions, please let me know in the comment session.

Doesn’t work (May 2020). There it says I need administrator, running TV with Admin from Windows menu doesn’t help either. Uninstalled this buggy software (“if a feature can’t be disabled, it’s to be considered a bug”).

The most important question is, “Why is Team Viewer running in the first place?” Is there a downside to turning it off?

Thank you! Also, thank you for saving me the time of reading thousands of useless words and just providing the solution in simple and easy to follow steps. I prefer writing back a comment than reading filler words.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
