Reset Screen Recording Permissions on Mac

Every so often, my Mac screen recording permission screen System Setting decides to completely ignore whatever setting is in the UI. Steps below have helped me a couple of times

Locate the bundle ID of the affected application:

  • On Terminal run
osascript -e 'id of app "App Name"'

Reset privacy database for affected application:

  • On terminal run:
tccutil reset ScreenCapture com.BUNDLE.ID

As always with the Terminal, be careful.
