Popular video conferencing tools such as Zoom that allow screen sharing will request approval for Screen Recording before someone can share their screen.
In macOS 10.15, as a standard user I was able to go into System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Screen Recording and add an app without needing to unlock the preference pane with admin credentials.
As of macOS 10.16 Beta 1 (20A4299v), as a standard user when I go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy > Privacy > Screen Recording, I need to unlock the preference pane with admin credentials.
This is a regression from macOS 10.15 behavior. In our environment, our users do not have admin credentials to be able to unlock that preference pane. This will severely impact our users who rely on web conferencing tools and need to share their screen. With many of our users working from home, this will severely impact us and affect our ability to also provide remote support. In fact, we rely on Zoom's screen sharing feature for our end-users to show us their screens during remote support sessions. If they do not have admin credentials to unlock the preference pane, they cannot possibly provide screen recording to Zoom and other similar apps. We kindly request that the behavior go back to how it was in macOS 10.15.
Apple at the moment is not providing an alternative way for standard users to be able to approve prompts for Screen Recording access. If you are impacted by this, I sincerely suggest you supply feedback to Apple at https://feedbackassistant.apple.com/.
