FAQ: Enable Privacy Setting (Mac OS Catalina)



Due to security changes in Mac OS Catalina 10.15, you may have to physically allow access to the Dyknow Cloud Connector from the student Mac device itself.

Once the Dyknow Cloud Connector is installed on a student's Mac OS Catalina 10.15 device, the following notification will appear, prompting screen recording access.


Otherwise, teachers may see the following thumbnail for student Mac devices that automatically update to Mac OS Catalina 10.15. If this occurs, follow the steps in the Enable Privacy Setting section below.
