What is Full Disk Access on Mac?

If you are running macOS Mojave (10.14) or above, you need to enable Full Disk Access on your Mac to ensure Curiosity works correctly.

Full Disk Access permission management is a macOS privacy feature that prevents apps from accessing important data including email, messages, and safari files. That means you have to manually grant Curiosity permission to access these protected areas of your Mac.

As always, Curiosity keeps your data safe on your computer. We never see, store or copy any of your data.
