TCC ClickJacking

A proof of concept for a ClickJacking attack on macOS.


TCC (Transparency, Consent, and Control) restricts and control application access to certain features. This can include things such as camera, microphone, location services, contacts, photos, Downloads/Desktop/Documents folders, and a bunch more.

The ability to bypass TCC can sometimes be the difference-maker in red team engagements. ClickJacking is a fairly simple attack that can trick most users into giving away full control over their TCC database.


  1. This was only tested on macOS Monterey, the window location would likely need adjustments on different operating systems.
  2. Clone this repository and navigate to the cloned directory.
  3. Open the Terminal app, and execute:
$: swift ./tcc-clickjacking.swift

You should now see an immovable transparent window with an “OK” button. Behind it will be the TCC consent dialog, perfectly positioned so that clicking on the visible “OK” button would give the application access to your TCC database.
