ExamLock Installation and macOS Catalina

Article Last Updated October 2019

ExamLock™ will work only after it is granted all the permissions it needs when installing on macOS Catalina.

When opening ExamLock for the first time will prompt this popup from Catalina:

Click Show in Finder to display it's installed location in your Applications.

Right-click it and Open

A similar popup will appear but this time you can choose Open


Please be aware of at least three system prompts for ExamLock (and other application) permissions and ensure that you allow all of them.

  • Access to Desktop (File Access)
  • Access to Documents (File Access)
  • Permit Screen Recording

If you think you missed any and need to check your settings, go to:

System Preferences > Privacy & Security > Privacy (tab)

Place checkmarks in any (ExamLock) empty boxes residing in:

  • Files and Folders


  • Full Disk Access


  • Screen Recording


ExamLock will now work on your macOS Catalina.
