On mobile we can’t change this behaviour at this time.
Since the chat is full-screen, it would be bad user experience to interrupt visitor from viewing your website.
On PC browser trigger will open a chat to show trigger message to a visitor.

I really agree with you. It should just show a little text bubble next to the chat icon.
So I dont agree with the admin here, at least it should be the owner of the website, that should make the choice.

To All Our Valued Users,
Thank you for choosing tawk.to and for reaching out.
The pre-chat form option will only come up when you select the Online and Offline Status under the Chat Widget Content.
Alternatively, you can create a Chat Rescuer Trigger. This trigger is used to auto-respond to messages if agents don’t respond in time. The delay message options are from 10 seconds to 1 hour.
In this section, you can leave a message to your users saying that you are currently unavailable and requesting them to leave their details after.
For more information, you can visit this link: https://help.tawk.to/article/creating-and-managing-triggers
Let me know if you have any other questions, require assistance, or just want to talk to someone at tawk.to. Here is a link to my calendar: https://calendly.com/siennarubio/30min. I’d be happy to help!
