Allow screen recording and sharing on a Mac
This article shows you how to set your security and privacy settings on your Mac to use the screen recording and screen sharing features of web conferencing tools like Teams or Zoom.
To enable screen sharing on a Mac you need to adjust your Security and Privacy settings.
- Select the main Apple menu icon in the upper left
- Select "System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy"
- Select "Screen Recording"
- Select the checkbox next to the applications that you want to have access to record and share your screen. In most cases you'll choose "Chrome, FireFox, KalturaCapture, Teams and Zoom"
If you want to allow others to control your screen using these applications you may also need to go into "Accessibility" and set the same permissions there too.
