Question: Catalina 10.15.3 unable to grant camera, microphone, or screen recording access
I just performed a clean install of macOS Catalina (10.15.3), and I am unable to grant to any application: camera, microphone, or screen recording access.
- Chrome 80.0.3987.122 (Official Build) (64-bit): https://www.onlinemictest.com/
- Parallels Desktop 15 Home Edition 15.1.2 (47123)
- Zoom 4.6.7 (18176.0301)
I opened System Preferences (14.0) > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Microphone
I only see "Apps that have requested access to your microphone will appear here."
Note: I have never denied access in any of the above tested applications. System applications that don't require this permission work correctly (e.g., Safari).
Note 2: there may be other permissions that can't be enabled, but I haven't tested all privacy permissions.
