In macOS Ventura there is a new feature under "Privacy & Security" that allows you to limit how USB devices are connected, similar to iOS. By default it set to:

Allow accessories to connect: Ask for New Accessories

Clearly, the system now stores a list of connected devices so it doesn't keep asking you. Does anyone know where this is?

  • Are you trying to add to it or delete from it on the command line?

  • No. Is there a command for that? Oct 26, 2022 at 17:23
  • Not sure if this: defaults read /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist
