How to configure MacOS permission settings

There are two permissions required for the Mac Agent to function properly. One is related to Accessibility (that might affect how activities such as web site visits, keystrokes logging etc. are captured in Teramind) and another for Screen Recording (affects screen snapshots, screen recording, OCR etc.).

Follow the steps below the set them up.
