Allow access using Apple Remote Desktop

If you are sharing your screen and Mac using Remote Desktop, you need to turn on remote management in Sharing preferences.

  1. Open Sharing preferences if it isn’t already open, then select the Remote Management checkbox.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • Select “All users” to let all users on your network connect to your Mac using Apple Remote Desktop.

    • Select “Only these users,” click Add (+), then select the users who can share your Mac using Apple Remote Desktop.

  3. Click Options, then select the tasks remote users are permitted to perform.
  4. Click Computer Settings, then select options for your Mac. If people connect using a VNC viewer, you need to set a password.

Apple Remote Desktop is available from the App Store. For help setting up and using Apple Remote Desktop, see Remote Desktop Help.
