I've been having issues getting apps to show in System Settings > Privacy & Security > Microphone & Camera, on MacOS Ventura 13.3.

I have a iMac 27-inch, Late 2013, which I used OpenCore Patcher to get the latest operating system working (required for my work).

I tried all solutions in this video and nothing worked: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nD-IF38E3Kw

However, I did find this solution that worked for Microphone on Stack Exchange: Solution if you are running Monterey 12.2.1 and BigSur 11.7.4 and Ventura 13.3

I'm unsure how to get a similar solution working for Camera. Here's the Microphone solution:

In Terminal, open the TCC database by running:

sqlite3 ~/Library/Application\ Support/com.apple.TCC/TCC.db

Add app by using:

insert into access
('kTCCServiceMicrophone','<AppBundleURLname>', 0, 2, 2, 1, null, null, null, 'UNUSED', null, null, 1669648527);

Then close the connection to the database using:


Thanks to @Kubuntuer82 for providing the Microphone solution

    This is rooted in the fact that the security perms don't work when SIP is off & that you need SIP off to run an OpenCore OS.

Download the following file and save it in your downloads folder GitHub Link: https://github.com/jslegendre/tccplus/releases/tag/1.0

Follow these steps:

  1. Locate the app folder in Finder that contains the app for which you need to assign permissions.

  2. Open Terminal, type the command codesign -dr - and drag the app file from Finder into the Terminal window.

  3. Press Enter. Terminal will display the path to the app along with other details, including its identifier.

Example: codesign -dr - /Applications/Microsoft\ Teams.app Take note of the app's identifier (e.g., com.microsoft.teams).

  1. In Terminal, enter the following commands:

     cd ~/Downloads/
     chmod +x tccplus
     ./tccplus add Microphone [identifier]

Replace "[identifier]" with the app's identifier you noted earlier. Example: ./tccplus add Microphone com.microsoft.teams

  1. Press Enter. Terminal will confirm the successful addition of permissions.

To grant camera access as well, repeat the previous command, replacing "Microphone" with "Camera".

The answer is based on this answer.

I just found this great tool on GitHub which makes the process easier for Microphone and Camera permissions: https://github.com/jslegendre/tccplus

I found it in this article: https://www.reddit.com/r/OSXTweaks/comments/fnw67y/release_tccplus_grantremove_accessibility/


On Sonoma I found there are four additional values that need to be added to the values list (I needed it so JupyterLab could access mic & camera):

insert into access 
('kTCCServiceCamera', 'org.jupyter.jupyterlab-desktop', 0, 2, 2, 1, null, null, null, 'UNUSED', null, null, 1669648527, 0, 0, 'UNUSED', 0);

insert into access 
('kTCCServiceMicrophone', 'org.jupyter.jupyterlab-desktop', 0, 2, 2, 1, null, null, null, 'UNUSED', null, null, 1669648527, 0, 0, 'UNUSED', 0);

Also, one should really make sure to take a backup of TCC.db before attempting ANY of this, as in:

cp ~/Library/Application\ Support/com.apple.TCC/TCC.db ~/TCC.db.bak

from one's $HOME directory.
