I was trying to test Teamviewer and found out that my option to disable/enable screen recording is missing. (see picture)

enter image description here

I have tried to reboot but it didn't help. Googling around did not come up with any useful info either.

My OS: 10.14.6

Can anyone help, please?

  • Are you sure that it’s gonna be in Full Disk access? I would guess it would be in Accessibility or Photos.

  • @Todd that's just a coincidence that they have FDA tab open. The thing is that screen recording is a whole new tab that is missing here. ikel: try recording with quicktime & see what permissions appear.

  • @ankii That makes more sense. I didn't remember how it was on Mojave.

  • @ikel You can try Safe Boot to isolate issues with your Mac.

Control of Screen Recording as a Privacy option was not available under Mojave (10.14) - this Apple KB lists available controls.

The Screen Recording control appears for Catalina (10.15).

Only Microphone permission is required for screen recorders, if they ask. Test it using QuickTime Player.

  • I didn’t know screen recording is only for 10.15, great help, thanks

  • In Sonoma, you have the option in Privacy and Security, but the screenshot app is available by keystroke or selecting from Launchpad. When you try the option, it tries to open a file. Sonoma lets you drag thScreenshot app to dock, but not from dock to Applications folder or Desktop.

What about a software that request this permission like Screegle (it is a screen sharing software)?
