PSA: macOS Mojave Privacy Protection means more app permissions

macOS Mojave Privacy Protection means that certain apps will ask for more rights. Privacy protection is a feature that Apple has added to protect your data.

Mojave Privacy Protection

MacOS Mojave requires apps to ask for your permission before they can access data such as photos, emails, webcam, microphone, contacts, and calendars. If you are an iOS user, you are familiar with this type of rights. Frankly, I am surprised that Apple took so long to add those permissions to macOS.

However, you can get into trouble. iOS has been designed from the outset with these rights in mind. While with macOS Apple suffers a permission system on top of the operating system. Apps are used to give aly these permissions, so if an app tries to access system resources without permission, it can crash.

You can see which apps have permission for certain things by going to System Preferences gt; Security; Privacy gt; Privacy. Usually you do not have to do much. If an app that has been updated for macOS Mojave needs permission, a dialog box appears.
