When tethering hotspot is on, and I connect with my laptop via USB (in order to tether), I get asked each time to trust the computer which is annoying.

Latest iOS 13.2 17B84 ; Mac OS Catalina 10.15.1 (19B88) .


In the past when the trust store became corrupt, I would see this. Have you followed the reset location process listed by Apple?

Once you do that, I would connect the phone without tethering enabled to just get a plain connect and make sure the computer and device are copacetic with reconnects that don’t prompt.

Once you’re past that, then try the tethering again.

    nope, didn't work. I've reset the Location & privacy settings, switched off tethering, connected to computer it asked to trust, then disconnected, and when connecting it doesn't ask anymore. But then I switched tethering on, and it still asked to trust. Hopeless
