What Do I Need to Know About Security Changes in Mojave?
Apple is primarily known for having robust security features and this update is no exception, as it allows greater control over your personal information. Applications now ask your permission before accessing the camera or microphone. You’ll also receive a prompt for approval anytime an app attempts to access your message history or mail database. Additionally, MacOS Mojave comes with an updated version of Safari, which includes an Enhanced Tracking Prevention feature. This tool puts a high emphasis at keeping your personal information private, including safeguarding against social media like, share, and comment widgets that track you without permission.
What Changes Happened to Quick Look in MacOS Mojave?
Although Quick Look has been around for a long time, MacOS Mojave makes it easier than ever to view photos and files without having to open them in an app. Now, you can utilize a selection of markup tools to add notations, shapes, or highlight important information with only a few mouse clicks. You can rotate or crop photos, and there are even a few tools to allow video editing without having to open QuickTime. You may also use Quick Look to electronically sign a document with your digital signatures. This is especially handy for PDFs and scanned documents, where going through the process to open an application for a such a simple step is time-consuming.
How Have Screen Capture Functions Changed in Mojave?
Another exciting change in MacOS Mojave is the screen capture feature. In the past, users could only take a quick snapshot of their screens without needing additional software. Many users were fine with using QuickTime or other apps to get the job done, but Apple took note and decided to include updated functionality with the latest update. Mojave’s built-in screen capture option now allows you take screen recording videos and set timers for when you want the feature to work. There are even special markup tools that will enable you to highlight certain elements you find most important.
