  2. Once the settings window is open, Select Surfshark Antivirus, and click the - button at the bottom of the list.


  3. You will be prompted to enter your password or use a fingerprint.


  4. Now close the Surfshark application and reopen it. 

  5. You will receive the Full Access Prompt again, this time, click Open Privacy Preferences again, and toggle the switch next to Surfshark Antivirus to green.


  6. Type in your macOS admin password or use a fingerprint, and you're done!
