Security & Privacy (macOS)


To remotely access the macOS remote computer(s) you need to enable TCC (Transparency, Consent, and Control) for ISL AlwaysOn application on macOS.

TCC (Transparency, Consent, and Control) is a mechanism in macOS to limit and control application access to certain features, usually from a privacy perspective. This can include things such as location services, contacts, photos, microphone, camera, accessibility, full disk access and more.

You can find a "Security & Privacy" section in ISL AlwaysOn settings:

  • Accessibility (to enable remote control)
  • Screen Recording (to enable screen view) 
  • Disk Access (to enables file transfer)

If the status for these Settings is DISABLED, ISL AlwaysOn does not have a consent to either remote control the computer, view the screen or to transfer files with remote computer.

Step 1

Open "Settings" in ISL AlwaysOn.
