In macOS, access to certain computer features and data categories requires your consent. If applications or computer features are not behaving as expected, you can reset all your consent decisions for a fresh start.

  1. Open Self Service from your /Applications folder.
  2. Click the System Maintenance category on the left.
  3. Click "Reset" below Reset Privacy Consent Decisions


All decisions you've made regarding app access to privacy-sensitive data or computers features will be reset, and apps will prompt for your consent again.
