The above message is popping up on my Macbook, and it is asking me to grant permission for screen recording.

 

Is this a feature I've activated, or is someone trying to hack my Macbook?

 

Latest version of Lightroom Classic, fully updated, Macbook pro running Catalina 10.15.1

 

Many thanks in advance.

 

Best wishes,

 

Richard.

That seems a bit suspicious... is there anything else running besides LR when it pops up? Do you have use a screen recording software and possibly activated it on accident? Screen recording isn't a feature native to LR Classic.

Hi, thank you.

 

No, I don't have screen recording software installed.

 

The pop up was very specific. It bore the Lightroom icon/logo. I had lightroom open the first time it popped up, and it was closed the second time it appeared.

 

Other open applications were Photoshop, Quicktime (I do not recall opening quicktime), Vivaldi, Preview, Mail, Safari and Finder.

EDIT - I've just googled quicktime - it seems I do have a screen recording app 🙂

This happens when you have a secondary display and want to preview what the secondary display will look like on your main display. The item is in Window->Secondary Display->Show Second Monitor Preview. You might have accidentally activated that.
