Privacy Preferences in macOS Mojave

Mojave changes how apps ask for privacy settings and gives you easier control of those settings. In System Preferences, Security & Privacy, Privacy, you can see all of the permissions that have been granted to apps and change them. However, for typical users it is often hard to determine why an app needs access to a specific type of information.

    Helpful, as usual! There are some apps I certainly trust, but don’t allow to access to certain areas because I’m overly paranoid. For example, I’d rather laboriously type in information in Skype than allow Microsoft any access to my contacts. While I “trust” Skype, I’d rather try to assure Microsoft doesn’t have even POTENTIAL access to my contacts. I rarely allow apps to know my location, except for maps when I travel. I give up convenience, but that’s just my preference.

    Great icon choice for advertising.
