Impero Connect OnDemand for macOS

Apple introduced new security controls and policies to provide a better and secure environment for applications and users with the release of macOS 10.14 (Mojave) and improved by its new major release macOS 10.15 (Catalina).

These permissions require to be set only once.

  • Screen Recording (applies for macOS 10.15 and above)
  • Accessibility (applies for macOS 10.14 and above)

Without these permissions, the Impero Agent Desktop functionality can be restricted to:

  • Viewing the desktop background, but no other applications
  • Not being able to control the keyboard and mouse remotely

Permissions explained:

  • The Accessibility permission grants the Impero Connect OnDemand access to the mouse and keyboard for the Remote Control Session.
  • The Screen Recording permission allows the Impero Connect OnDemand to capture the contents of your screen and lets you run a Remote Control Session.
