All New Privacy and Security Features Coming in macOS 10.14 Mojave

macOS 10.14 Mojave coming with new Privacy and Security Features

macOS is a series of graphical operating systems developed and marketed by Apple Inc. since 2001. It is the primary operating system for Apple’s Mac family of computers. Within the market of desktop, laptop and home computers, and by web usage, it is the second most widely used desktop OS, after Microsoft Windows.

The new operating system will include a multitude of app redesigns, a new dark mode, and desktop versions of multiple iOS apps. One focus of the new OS is security and privacy. Mac users will now be a bit safer online thanks to these three changes coming to Mojave.

Apple CEO Tim Cook said the new features included in Mojave are “inspired by pro users, but designed for everyone,” helping you protect from various security threats.

Safari’s Enhanced “Intelligent Tracking Prevention”

It’s no longer shocking that your online privacy is being invaded, and everything you search online is being tracked—thanks to third-party trackers present on the Internet in the form of social media like and sharing buttons that marketers and data brokers use to monitor web users as they browse.

But not anymore. With macOS Mojave, Safari has updated its “Intelligent Tracking Prevention”—a feature that limits the tracking ability of website using various ad-tracking and device fingerprinting techniques.

The all-new enhanced Intelligent Tracking Prevention will now automatically block all third-party trackers, including social media “Like” or “Share” buttons, as well as comment widgets from tracking users without their permission.

End-to-End Encrypted Group FaceTime (Up to 32 People)

This is a huge security improvement, as at WWDC 2018, Apple has introduced group FaceTime feature that lets groups of 32 or fewer people do video calls at the same time, which have end-to-end encryption just like the already existing one-to-one audio and video calls and group audio calls.

End-to-encryption for group calls with the Facetime app means that there’s no way for Apple or anyone to decrypt the data when it’s in transit between devices.

macOS Mojave Will Alert When Your Camera & Mic Are Accessed

As we reported several times in past few years, cybercriminals have now been spreading new malware for macOS that targets built-in webcam and microphone to spy on users without detection.

To address this threat, macOS Mojave adds a new feature that monitors access to your macOS webcam/microphone and alerts you with new permission dialogues whenever an app tries to access the camera or microphone.

This new protection has primarily been designed to prevent malicious software from silently turning on these device features in order to spy on its users.

Excessive Data Access Request User Permissions

macOS Mojave also adds similar permission requirements for apps to access personal data like mail database, message history, file system and backups.

By default, the macOS Mojave will also protect your location information, contacts, photos, Safari data, mail database, message history, iTunes device backups, calendar, reminders, time machine backups, cookies, and more.

Secure Password Management

It is a long warned users to deploy a good password practice by keeping their passwords strong and unique for every website or service. Now, Apple has made it easier in macOS 10.14 Mojave and iOS 12.

While Safari in macOS has provided password suggestions for years when users are asked to create a login at a site, Apple has improved this feature in a way that Safari now automatically generates strong passwords, enters them into the web browser, and stores them in the iCloud keychain when users create new online accounts.

Previously, third-party password manager apps have done that much of tasks, and now Apple is integrating such functionalities directly into the next major versions of both macOS and iOS.
