click allow or don't allow....
is this a trick?
Sounds like malware or simple spyware (that is you are still logged into gmail/google account).
Make sure you are logged out of that crap.
Scan system with:
MalwareBytes (just run the free stuff ignore the marketing crap):
Superantispyware (again run the free stuff):
I was using... garageband "garageband like to access your photos" don't allow or allow..
i scan it with malwarebytes and nothing. superanit it sp y ware is...windows.Thankyou
So Garageband was being spyware?
it was whatever program i was using. first it was firefox. then chrome. now garageband. And I scan it with malwarebytes and saids it's clean.
Ok but Superantispyware found some nasties and cleaned them?
Just say Don't Allow?
You might need to take a step back for a moment. Things like this are why sites and applications have privacy/data collection/TOS policies. Based on your projected uncertainty of this, your question should not be whether to allow or not, but why it wants access. To simply ask whether to say yes or no is a bigger deal than you'd think, however the safest bet is always "No" in any case. Denial of access for an essential service (which you can later rectify) is better than allowing a covert malicious one (which'll create needless work for you to contain).
Can you provide screenshots of this happening?
now this... is this a 'hack' or breakin attempt?
It looks legit, but I'm not much familiar with how macOS works. Unless someone else here can give the answer you need, I'd recommend seeking out advice on Apple's forums.
I think you're going offtopic in your own thread now too. Wasn't this about web browsers wanting access to your Contacts data?
Yeah I thought this was the same prob
Well... no... it's not asking to access your personal data. It looks to me that it's trying to install components it needs to operate. It's most evident based on what it says it wants to install. This is common behaviour for applications.
Read the alerts carefully It's what they're designed to do.
thought someone wrote that as I was using gb. but i didn't think gb need it to download sounds as it was doing before without permission
new security update requires garageband to ask permissions... sounds legit. please set thread to solved
