Only 1 user on a machine needs to approve the Screen Recording PPPC prompt. Once approved by any user of the machine, it applies to all users of the machine. The prompt only needs to be accepted 1 time. The approving user does not need to have Admin rights.

When connecting to a device, you will see not see the desktop. You will only see:


So, if you’re using macOS Catalina and macOS Mojave then you have to use this feature to record screen or video on Mac. With macOS Catalina and macOS Mojave, press Shift + Command (⌘) + 5 on your keyboard to see all the controls you need to record video and capture still images of your screen. The recording button may blink and appear to record, but the timer is stuck at 00:00 and no.mov file is created when you stop the recording. Solution With Catalina (10.15), Apple has introduced a new security and privacy update for Mac.

Below are tutorials on how to guide the end-user to allow the Screen Recording prompt.


As of April 13, 2020 the new process to approve ConnectWise Control, formally ScreenConnect is as follows. (Note that once ANY Admin user on a machine approves screen recording, screen recording is approved for ALL users of that machine.)

  2. The end-user will need to click the enable option for this application:
  3. After clicking to allow ConnectWise Control access to Screen Recording, you users will be prompted with the following. There is no need to choose 'Quit Now', ConnectWise will work immediately if 'Later' is chosen'.
  4. If the end-user doesn't enable ConnectWise Control for Screen Recording, you will not be allowed to view the end-users screen. Should this happen, you may use Addigy LiveTerminal to connect. Details are here.

Ever since macOS Mojave (10.14), Soundflower, the go to free sound plugin that overcame Apple Quicktime’s inability to include audio to screen recordings has ceased working with subsequent macOS’.

There’s now a fix for this in the form of Existential Audio’s virtual audio driver that allows applications to pass audio to other applications with zero latency.

You first need to download the BlackHole.vx.x.x.pkg from Existential Audio and follow the install process detailed at their BlackHole web site.Once you’ve successfully installed the BlackHole audio driver, all you then need to do is select “BlackHole 16ch” as the output device from your System Preferences > Sound > Output tab:

Alternatively, you can also toggle it from within your Volume menu in your macOS menu bar:

Once you’ve done that, please note that your system will no longer produce any sound output from its ordinary output device, so during your screen recording the system will be mute.
