AteraAgent - install as 'noone'

Currently, to retrieve an 'AteraAgentSetup_Customized.exe' we have to click + > Add Client, when the executable is downloaded and run it displays the email address of the technician who downloaded the .exe.

I understand that this is because the file was downloaded from within their portal and it also allows access to the Customers folder to auto-assign the agent but can this not be done by some other means rather than the technician's email and password (I presume)

Something such as an authentication token between the Agent executable and the Atera dashboard.

I hope this makes sense, it just seems a bit odd to have the technicians email address slap bang on the front of the executable program when it has nothing to do with the Agent (technically).
