If you use macOS, Barcode to PC requires accessibility permissions to be enabled so it can simulate keypresses in your programs.
Does this mean that Barcode to PC has control of my computer?
No. When you enter your computer username and password you’re simply given Barcode to PC the permission it needs to interact with your system when the Keyboard emulation feature is enabled.
What happens if I don’t agree to the accessibility permissions?
You can choose to not give Barcode to PC access to these permissions. You’ll be able to use the application, but it won’t type barcodes automatically.
