Authorize camera, microphone and accessibility features on macOS

Allow camera access on macOS
System preferences for camera access on macOS

When you launch alfaview on macOS 10.14 (Mojave) for the first time, you will be prompted to allow access to the camera and microphone. The approval is required in order to transfer video and sound to the other participants.

These approvals can be revoked at any time:

  • To do this, go to the System Preferences, click on Security and Privacy and then Privacy.
  • Then click on either Camera or Microphone.
  • To prevent access to the camera or microphone, the checkbox next to the alfaview icon must be disabled.
  • If access is denied, the prompt to allow access again will reappear every time alfaview tries to use the camera or microphone.
  • Approval of Accessibility is required if the Push-To-Talk (PTT) feature is used. Just like the approval for microphone and camera, this can also be revoked.
