Unfortunately, Apple is adding even more restrictions to macOS with Mojave. One of them is no longer being able to enable Remote Management on the user’s behalf. Starting with macOS 10.14, Apple now require users to perform this step manually, which is a shame as it will make the whole setup more confusing for some unexperienced users:

More macOS restrictions...

We added some information and a quick way to access the Sharing preference pane in System Preferences.

You’ll find the Screens Connect 4.8 release notes here. Screens Connect is available for free on our website.

Screens Express 1.2.1

Version 1.2.1 adds macOS 10.014 Mojave support and Dark Mode:

Screens Express is unfortunately not known to many of our users. Essentially, it lets you control a remote Mac without needing a Mac username or password. This is great for helping family members, friends or clients troubleshooting their Mac.

You’ll find more information about the app and a free download on our website.

It’s iOS 12 time!
