f.lux asks for Screen Recording permission in macOS Catalina



  • Hello, I've fresh installed f.lux in macOS Catalina and it asked me to allow or deny f.lux from Screen Recording. This is the first time I've seen this, so I wanted to ask why f.lux is requesting this, and what it does.

  • f.lux team

    Our About box captures the screen once to report how bright each screen is - it's trying to explain how the content on the screen affects the amount of light.

    Are you seeing it prompt at other times?



  • Hi @herf, that does make sense. From memory the prompt was because of opening the About window in f.lux.

    Thanks for that!
