Pathio Users

Why does MacOS say that Pathio wants to access my calendar, contacts, photos, etc.?

Pathio does not access your calendar, contracts, photos, or any other sensitive personal information on your computer.

Newer versions of MacOS protect folders on your computer that hold your calendar, contacts, and other sensitive data. Unfortunately, simply displaying these folders in a “save file” dialogue box can trigger a prompt from the OS that “Pathio wants access to your calendar, etc”. Because Pathio’s default save locations are in a folder near these other protected folders, you might get this popup. Declining Pathio access to the protected folders is completely fine, and won’t impact your experience with Pathio.
