How to Allow Gmail to Download on Mac

If you’re a Mac user, you may have come across certain apps that aren’t working correctly or are asking for permissions. In this post, we’ll show you how to change or give apps different permissions in Mac OS. This should work no matter what type of Mac or MacBook you’re using or what version of Mac OS you’re running.

Before we get started, it’s important to figure out what permissions you want to add or change. This will make things easier once we get to the permissions page. Once you’re ready, let’s get into the method.

The first thing to do is head to the Apple logo in the top left and click on that. From the list that appears, choose System Preferences. In System Preferences, click on Security and Privacy. Now go to the Privacy tab; it should be the furthest right option.

You should now see all of the permissions you can give on the left. This will be things like location services, your camera, or microphone. From this list, find each permission you want to give the app. We’ll choose screen recording as an example, but you’ll probably choose something else.

Select it, and some of the apps that want to use this feature will appear on the right, although they will be greyed out. Click on the lock icon in the bottom left of the window to allow you to make changes. After clicking on this, you need to enter your device password or use touch ID if you have it. You should now be able to make changes and give permissions.

Check the blue tick box next to the app you want to give the permission to. If you don’t see it, click on the plus icon and then navigate to the application you want to allow access for. After adding it, check the box to the left of it.

You can now close this window, and that’s it! You’ve successfully changed or given apps different permissions in Mac OS. If you have any questions, let us know in the comments below. And if you found this post helpful, remember to leave a like.
